3 étapes pour brancher et configurer votre GPS USB dans TIMEZERO

Lorsque vous êtes à bord de votre bateau et que vous souhaitez être géolocalisé, vous devez obligatoirement relier votre PC à un système GPS. Les logiciels TZ Navigator et TZ Professional sont capables de recevoir et de traiter l’ensemble des informations émises par vos appareils afin d’afficher votre position ainsi que des données complémentaires.

Certains GPS ne sont pas pourvus de connexion port série habituel et peuvent être branchés en USB directement sur votre ordinateur.
Découvrez ci-dessous les 3 étapes pour brancher, configurer et analyser votre GPS USB dans votre logiciel de navigation TIMEZERO via le système d’exploitation Windows.

Note: TZ Professional v3 has the same list of compatible Furuno Hardware as v2.1

*TZtouch MFD:
• Synchronization of route and waypoints working with TZ Professional v3 and TZT firmware 4.03
• BUG with latest TZT firmware 4.11 (synchronization not working)

Unfortunately, at this time we cannot provide an exact release date regarding the full compatibility of the hardware above. Our next milestone is the release of TZ Navigator v3 which will have the same hardware compatibility as TZ Professional v3. We will then focus on the TZT/TZT2 Route & Waypoint synchronization. We will keep you posted as soon as possible regarding these future developments.

This was a good opportunity for our distribution network to learn about the new features available in the software and of course, to brush up on their understanding of how to integrate TimeZero software with compatible FURUNO hardware, such as the NavNet 3D, NavNet TZtouch and a range of their radars and sounders.


We would like to thank our partner network, which throughout the years has succeeded in making our software the leading solution on the boating and fishing markets.
