Suzuki today held a press conference at the Genoa Boat Show to announce the launch of a new ground-breaking and market-leading display screen called the Suzuki Multi-Function Display (SMD), which will rival any of the top electronics providers.
Suzuki’s aim with this new premium accessory is to provide the ultimate connectivity in order to unite the boat driver with the surrounding environment.
This is achieved through valuable features such as chart plotter, radar, fish finder and weather information via an internet connection. On top of that, this new screen gives drivers access to all Suzuki engine data, so they can easily and quickly see the performance of the outboard/s in one clear view.
Unlike any other display screens on the market, Suzuki’s new Multi-Function Display can be set up to display just engine data, or a combination of engine and environmental information.
In addition, there are various options to enable digital switching to control things like navigation lights, trim tabs and multi-beam sonar as well as full connectivity with other systems such as FUSION marine entertainment systems (SMD12/16 only). This means that customers can build and customise their systems with the best sensors and technologies to suit their needs.
The stylish new display unit features a glass top design, and multi-touch controls. It comes in a variety of sizes (7, 9, 12 and 16-inch screens) as well as a number of mounting options, to suit any boat and console configuration. It will be available to purchase as an upgrade option from the Spring of 2019.
Yasuharu Osawa, Managing Officer, Executive General Manager, Marine Operations, Suzuki Motor Corporation, said, “This is a huge step forward for Suzuki. We understand that boaters are demanding more connectivity between our outboards and their electronic systems. The all new Suzuki Multi-Function Display is the perfect solution as it offers Suzuki customers access to all the information they need to be assured of a safe and ultimate boating experience.”
