New for 2017 and currently on display the Mercury Marine exhibit—by far the largest and busiest indoor display at the Miami International Boat Show—the Mercury VesselView® 703 is the latest generation of the marine engine and accessories builder’s engine monitoring and operations system. VesselView 703 incorporates the new Simrad® SolarMAX® HD display for precise, reliable control combined with increased clarity, high-definition resolution, wide viewing angles, and enhanced controls for easier operation in all conditions, according to press materials from the Fond du Lac, Wis., company.
Gateway functionality enables the VesselView 703 system’s SmartCraft data to be displayed on NMEA 2000 devices.
VesselView 703 simultaneously displays information for up to four engines in an easy-to-read interface. The display provides up-to-date information for more than 30 engine parameters, including:
•Fuel Level and Range.
•Oil Temperature and Pressure.
Built-in features include a 10Hz GPS and chart plotter capability (regional electronic chart cards purchased separately). VesselView 703 also has an integrated echosounder and true dual-channel CHIRP. It also can be integrated with all the Simrad accessories for the NSS Evo3 product line, including radar, sonar transducers, fish finder transducers, AIS, VHF, Sonic Hub/Fusion Link, C-Zone digital switching and more.
A highly expandable system, VesselView 703 has the gateway functionality to allow SmartCraft data to be displayed on NMEA 2000 devices. It supports 16 languages and multiple unit conversions, and also features automatic notification of available software updates through GoFree Wi-Fi, which is integrated into the system.
