New Furuno Software Update Now Available!

Happy Tuesday! It’s a busy day here at The GPS Store. We are preparing for the United States Sailboat Show that starts on Thursday and runs through Monday. Visit us at the show for great deals on electronics, or visit us online for our virtual boat show sale.

We look forward to spending some time with our customers in person. It’s something that we don’t always get the chance to do and have missed over the last year. If you love electronics like we do, you are guaranteed to enjoy the show.

This time of year is full of planning- preparing for shows, upcoming holiday sales and looking forward to end of the year events. It’s also a good time to take inventory of your existing electronics and any software updates that haven’t been performed. Software updates are periodically released from manufacturers and are free of charge. Oftentimes they provide improvements to past features, backwards compatibility with new accessories and access to new, innovative features. It is strongly encouraged software be updated regularly to ensure you get the best performance out of your device.

Furuno recently released their 8.01 Software Update for TZTouch2 12/15 displays. The V8.01 Furuno software update includes ‘Fish-It’, ‘Drift-It’ and ‘New Marker Zoom’ features. Click the link below for update information including a list of new and improved upon features. If you have electronics from another manufacturer, take a moment to check their website for information about your unit and potential software updates.

We will check back in over the next few days with pictures and information from the show. You can find us at booth B40- and we may even have a little souvenir for you at our booth if you mention this blog post.

See you at the show!
