Amsterdam – We are at METS, the world’s largest kermesse about boat accessories, looking for the latest innovations. One is that of Veratron, the brand that markets the products of VDO Marine: we were very impressed by the range of new 12 and 7-inch TFT displays Glass Line, completely flush.
Elegant displays of automotive inspiration that, in addition to having all the “classic” functions (boat data display, cartography, radar, AIS, split screen, alarms, etc.) are based on Android and interface directly with your smartphone acting as repeaters for all your apps: Whatsapp, Netflix, Youtube and so on. You can respond to your Whatsapp chat (with a voice message) while you are at the helm, or in the evening relax with a TV series in the cockpit.
NFC TECHNOLOGY ARRIVES IN THE ELECTRONICS FOR NAUTICA
Veratron product manager, Luca Ravelli, told us about the product and also revealed how the world of electronic instruments can benefit from NFC technology, which is now widely used for “mobile” payments and allows the exchange of information between a smartphone and another device by simply putting them in contact: on the smartphone you will decide the information (engine speed, fuel, speed, etc.) that you want to see on the 1.44-inch display ViewLine Flex, you will bring the phone closer to the display and the game is done! www.veratron.com
