WatchMate Vision² smartAIS Transponder w/Touchscreen Display

Introducing WatchMate Vision² with a highly responsive, easy to use capacitive touchscreen, bright display, stylish looks, increased WiFi connectivity and lots more.

Powered with smartAIS technology, Vision² has safety features that can save lives. Get proactive alerts when you have potential collision situations, if your anchor drags or if there’s a man overboard situation.

With its intuitive and easy to use touch screen, scroll through the menu, zoom in and out, see vessel details and navigation data, change alarm settings and more with the most gentle of touches.

Remote control your transponder from anywhere on board with your smartphone, tablet or smartwatch using WiFi. The Vision² enables you to connect up to eight devices simultaneously for greater flexibility.

The Vision² has a stylish black bezel front panel with glossy black side panels, designed to complement every helm and Nav station.

Interactive User Friendly Screen

The bright 5.7 inch color touchscreen has a radar plotting display with worldwide coastal outlines for better situational awareness. The screen magnifier allows you to select targets without losing position context and scale. The screen has excellent optical clarity over a wide viewing angle and can be viewed using polarized glasses.

Packed with Advanced Safety Features:

  • DSC calls: Place calls directly to a vessel by touching it on the screen. (Works with ICOM VHF radios)
  • Alarm banner: Highlights the most critical alarm while also sounding an audible alarm
  • Intelligent target filtering: Reduces screen clutter showing only those vessels with a collision risk
  • Depth alarm at anchor: Warns you if the water depth falls below a certain level
  • Wind alarms at anchor: Get alerted with change in wind direction or wind speed
  • MOB labelling: In case of an MOB, view the name of your crew member instead of a string of MMSI numbers
  • Anchor Move: After setting your anchor position, you can fine tune its position for greater accuracy.
