This update introduces compatibility with Windows 8.1 and improved compatibility with the new FURUNO DFF1-UHD TruEcho CHIRP network sounder* as it delivers significant advancements in signal clarity and target definition.
As it is a minor update, it is free of charge to all customers who currently own MaxSea TimeZero Navigator or Explorer software version 2.
Please note that you must possess a MaxSea Sounder Module added to your MaxSea TimeZero Explorer software in order to avail of these improvements in Furuno Sounder integration.
- Compatible with Windows 8.1
- Improved compatibility between MaxSea TimeZero Explorer and the Furuno DFF1-UHD (better transducer set-up and power setting selection)
- New “Allow Chart Overzoom” option (Plotter Options) that prevent “Overzoom” tiles to appear when the customer is zooming too much on the chart
- Minor Date Bar bug correction
*Important Transducer Information for TimeZero integration with FURUNO DFF1-UHFD
We recommend using the Airmar transducer B265 or CM265 with the DFF1-UHD. In this case the transducer configuration will be automatic (TD-ID).
Other “Low High” CHIRP transducers such as the 175LH, 109LH or 509LH may be used, however the accuracy of both ACCU-FISH and Bottom Discrimination modes will not be guaranteed.
In this case, put the transducer settings to “Model Number” (within the Sounder Initial Setup) and select “B265LH”.
