October 4, 2021
Sales Bulletin #2021-05T
We’re excited to announce a major software update for NavNet TZTL12F and TZTL15F. As of today, all TZtouch2 units are being shipped with version 8.01 software, which includes numerous new features and enhancements.
We know you'll share in our excitement as you go through the following overview of these ground-breaking new features now available for the TZTL12F and TZTL15F.
Fish-It & Drift-It
Tap on a fishing location such as a pinnacle, wreck, artificial reef, point, or anyplace on the screen, and activate "Fish-It". Fish-it creates a “Fishing GoTo Point”. Once activated, you will get dynamic range rings to the Fish-It spot, a yellow course line between the boat and the Fish-It spot, and temporary track lines, along with a Fish-It data bar located along the top of the display. Fish-It stays active at that spot until tapping the stop sign on the data bar.
Drift-It is a unique companion feature to Fish-It. Once a Fish-It point has been selected, the Drift-It feature can be activated from the data bar. Once activated, Drift-It automatically calculates your drift starting location to allow a perfect drift over the Fish-It spot. Drift times are selectable from 3 to 20 minutes.
Drift-It saves time and fuel by removing the “guess work” in determining vessel drift patterns in challenging wind and current conditions.
The zoomed view is displayed on the left and the global view on the right. The zoom portion appears inside a yellow frame on the right. The zoom range can be adjusted by pinching, and the frame can be shifted by dragging.
