Simple, Fast Chartplotter Operation and Ability to Add Sonar, Radar and More.
Furuno’s TZT9 is a 9” WVGA glass edge to edge multi-function display offering the ease of touch screen operation and network operation. The TZ Touch 9 inch comes with an anti-reflective glass coating that makes the screen visible under any lighting conditions and even works with polarized sunglasses. TZTouch is a Navnet that includes the ability to choose from official NOAA raster and vector charts, or optional “C-Map by Jeppesen” and “Datacore by Navionics” vector cartography. The TZT9 also has the ability to interface with Apple iPads, iPhones, and iPod Touch this interface allows you to wirelessly view and control the TZ Touch, the included WIFI connectivity gives you the ability to download useful updates, such as real time weather, from the internet. Simply add the Furuno GP330B GPS Antenna and your TZTouch is ready to operate.
Simply add the Furuno DFF1 Sounder Module for 600w or 1KW of fishfinding power. For the more serious fisherman you may want to go with the DFF3 which has capabilities for 1KW to 3KW of output power for reaching deeper depths. The TZ Touch units are also ready to interface with the DFF1-UHD TrueEcho Chirp Sounder right out of the box.

Radar and AIS
Increase your situational awareness with Furuno Radar and AIS. Both systems can be overlaid onto the chartplotter to give you a much better view of what is around your boat as well as show you if you are on a collision course with another vessel. AIS is connected via NMEA 2000 and sends information about other AIS equipped vessels in your area. Information like vessel name, call sign, position, course, speed over ground, and other useful information. Furuno Digital Radar is offered in either a radar dome or open array. Open array radars are recommended for long range vessels as well as fisherman looking for birds offshore. Radar domes are the perfect answer for anyone looking for more close range information like boats, buoys and land. The PSU012 is required when adding any radar to the Furuno NavNet TZ Touch.
Flir Thermal Imaging
FLIR’s popular M‐Series line of thermal night vision cameras can not be controlled for a Furuno TZTouch 9 or TZTouch 12, easily access and controll functions right from the touch screen on the MFD. Change camera settings, optimize the video, and even pan and tilt the camera directly from your favorite TZTouch MFD. By incorporating “Pinch to Zoom” and “Tap to Point” technology, Furuno’s NavnetTZTouch software adds even more functionality to the camera.
Screen and Operation
Built on an Ethernet network the TZT9 NAVNET allows you to add as many components as needed and up to 6 displays. The Touch Screen is intuitive and offers the “Pinch to Zoom” gesture that allows the user to zoom in or out by simply spreading or closing two fingers. To make operation even easier when your boat is moving Furuno includes their patented RotoKey which allows you to make adjustments to such items as range and gain using the rotary knob. With one turn of the RotoKey you are given full control or the Navnet TZTouch. The TimeZero technology, which is also included in the TZ touch, delivers lightning fast screen redraws that provide a smooth, fast, and seamless picture to navigate by.
The Furuno TZ Touch 9 can be interfaced many different ways. It has networking abilities through NMEA 2K, Furuno CAN Bus, USB, and LAN (RJ45)/Ethernet. 2 video inputs allow you to keep an eye on your crew or engine room with any NTSC or PAL camera. The TZ also has 1 video output port so that you can turn your salon tv into a 2nd viewing display. If that was not enough the Furuno TZ Touch is also compatible with the FLIR M-Series Thermal Cameras. Not only can you view that info on the screen but you can also control it from the TZ Touch Display. Also, if you have a Fusion Link Compatible Stereo on your boat connected to NMEA 2000, the Furuno TZT can control the stereo using Fusion Link which allows you to control volume, audion source and more.
