New Electronics: Helm Displays

Available in 12-, 15-, 17-, and 19-inch sizes, Raymarine G-Series displays (starting at $5,995) are high-resolution LCDs designed to stay visible even in the face of intense lighting conditions. The G190 (shown) has nine video inputs, and adjustable backlighting for night use. Built on a marine-grade aluminum chassis, the G190 offers picture-in-picture on an LCD display bonded to an impact-resistant glass panel. The display connects to a GPM400 processor (not shown, not included) that comes preloaded with Navionics Platinum cartography and integrates radar, fishfinding, plotting, GPS, networked video, Sirius satellite weather and more.

The 32MM ($10,999 for pilothouse, $13,999 for sunlightviewable) from VEI is the big dog of glass-bridge monitors. Built on a powder-coated marine-grade aluminum frame, the 32-inch MM Series is waterproof when flush-mounted. Nine inputs connect the screen to the helm systems and video inputs, while a 16-by-9 aspect ratio provides plenty of usable space for split-screen applications. The display is glare-proof and made of patented scratch-proof glass¿built to withstand hard use in the marine environment, including vibration, moisture, salt, and frequent cleaning. Used in conjunction with a VEI SSIR Electronic Bridge Control (not shown, not included) the 32MM can have an unlimited number of inputs. VEI, (866) 834-5237; www.vei-systems.com

The GB60 from Simrad (systems start at $35,000) pushes its screen right to the edge. The company notes that the 25-percent smaller footprint of the 19-inch display lets it fit in the space occupied by some competitors’ 15-inch screens. Available in 12-, 15-, and 19-inch sizes, the expansive displays work in conjunction with up to 12 customizable splitscreens for the flexibility yachtsmen need. Connect it to a dual-processor black box (not shown) and integrate vector and raster charting, 3-D depth, video and more. The GB60 can control up to two radars and connects to a GPS and an autopilot through SimNet or NMEA 2000. Simrad, (425) 778-8021; www.simrad-yachting.com

The 19-inch KEPM GB glass bridge displays (starting at $7,995) put big-screen charting and radar on smaller helms, thanks to a design that optimizes monitor size for the footprint of the display. The adjustment controls are in a remote unit that can be placed anywhere, even in an out-of-the-way cabinet. The LCD screens communicate with R-232 control systems and offer a wide range of dimming capability for nighttime use. KEP Marine, (800) 631-2165; www.kepmarine.com
