Navico is introducing a universal media-dock device that works with its SonicHub marine audio server. The Lowrance and Simrad UNI-Dock lets you plug your mobile media device of choice into the system without having to worry about saltwater spray or other marine-environment issues.
UNI-Dock supports a wide array of smartphones, media players and USB flash drives. When used in conjunction with the SonicHub marine audio server, it lets boaters use Lowrance HDS and Simrad NS multifunction displays to control music collections throughout the boat.
The UNI-Dock features a watertight enclosure as well as an enhanced stainless steel locking mechanism to protect your iPhone from the elements. Three connection cables — a Micro USB, Apple 30 Pin and Apple Lightning — accommodate top-selling devices.
“Mobile devices are constantly evolving, and the UNI-Dock for our popular SonicHub marine audio server gives boaters unparalleled device support and mobile entertainment integration flexibility,” Leif Ottosson, CEO of Navico, stated in a press release. “Facilitating high-quality on-the-water mobile entertainment, regardless of boaters’ platform preferences, the new UNI-Dock is a cost-effective solution that enhances SonicHub’s industry leading sound quality and performance in the harsh marine environment.”
