Raymarine launches new Remote and Control apps

Raymarine launches new Remote and Control apps
 

Raymarine has launched a new series of apps which enable users to control e and c-Series multifunction displays wirelessly from a smartphone or tablet. These two new apps – RayRemote and RayControl – are now available for Apple iOS, Android and Kindle Fire.

RayControl transforms tablets into both a viewer and a full-function 2 way control; the tablet syncs with the multifunction display and users touch the tablet screen to control the MFD; pulling up charts, operating radar and thermal cameras, selecting menus, setting waypoints etc. in the same way as operating the MFD direct. RayControl also features a ‘pop-out’ virtual keypad mirroring the multifunction display’s rotary controller and hard keys, enabling users to operate all available functions wirelessly and remotely. RayControl works with all Raymarine’s new e Series and c Series multifunction displays.

RayRemote is designed for use on smartphones, switching their smaller screens between a full screen MFD repeater display and a full screen virtual keypad with just a tap of the display. The complete virtual keypad mimics that found on the multifunction display, including cursor and rotary controls, allowing users to navigate features, rotate through menus, and make adjustments easily. RayRemote works with all Raymarine’s new e Series and c Series multifunction displays.

Thanks to the new e and c Series wi-fi connectivity, a single multifunction display can support multiple wireless control devices, such as a smartphone using RayRemote, and a tablet using RayControl. The RayControl app will even enable the new c-Series display to be operated via touch; the menu system, apps and other features can be touch controlled via the RayControl app on tablet.

The new RayControl and RayRemote apps are a welcome and much anticipated addition to the existing free RayView app. RayControl and RayRemote are available for Apple iOS, Android and Kindle Fire, and can be purchased via the Apple iTunes App store, Google Play Store for Android, and through the Amazon Android Marketplace.

Raymarine e Series and c Series owners can connect their MFDs to Raymarine mobile apps by upgrading their MFD to v3.15 software, available as a free download at www.raymarine.com

Transform your tablet into a full function Raymarine MFD!

RayControl transforms your tablet into a full function Raymarine MFD. Remotely control and view electronic charting, sonar, radar, and even thermal night vision, right from your tablet.

RayControl emulates Raymarine MFD’s with touch screen interaction and a virtual slide out MFD keyboard. The slide out virtual keyboard gives you control of all MFD functions and the virtual uni-controller allows you rotate through menus and adjustments effortlessly.
