Furuno chooses not to work directly with boatbuilders, instead supplying its dealers with product. For a 26-foot fishing boat, Furuno described this package as a dream helm:
Two TZtouch2 (TZTL12F) 12-inch displays DRS6ANXT radar with 3.5-foot open array DFF3D (3D) multibeam sonar black box 165T-50/200-SS260 — combo transducer for DFF3D and 50/200 kHz internal fish finder NavPilot 300/PG autopilot with heading sensor GP330B external GPS sensor BBWX3 Sirius/XM satellite weather antenna
“This package offers the ultimate flexibility for this size boat with limited dash space,” says Jeff Kauzlaric, Furuno advertising and communications manager. “It features the 12-inch TZtouch2 multifunction display with a chart plotter, RezBoost 50/200 kHz fish finder, DFF3D multibeam sonar and a solid-state Doppler open-array radar. We added in the new NavPilot 300 autopilot, which features rich fish-hunting steering modes and the new gesture-control capabilities.” Gesture control means a captain can simply press a button on the handheld Bluetooth remote and point it in the direction he wants to go, and the autopilot follows.
Furuno listed additional sensors that add to navigational safety and assist with other crucial fishing data, including a Sirius/XM weather receiver and an external GPS sensor for redundancy. “Whether you’re fishing for kingfish, tuna, stripers or bottomfish, this package will put you on the fish,” Kauzlaric says. “Though the DFF3D is a deepwater sidescanning sonar that paints a 3D history, it’s right at home in the bays and inland waterways, helping to see fish schools and predators with its 120-degree port-to-starboard view.”

TruEcho “From there, CHIRP we add fish in finder,” the DFF3D Kauzlaric multibeam sonar, which gives you 120 degrees port to starboard of 3D sounding images. We added in the new NavPilot 300 autopilot (described for the smaller-boat package), and we combined that with a satellite compass to give the best possible position fix, creating incredible accuracy for the autopilot and radar overlays. "Kauzlaric suggested Furuno's high-powered bird-finding radar, the DRS25AX X-Class radar, for this discriminating, hardcore fisherman. "with this radar, you can scout locations based on birds feeding at a distance, farther that you can see with your eyes or binoculars."he say. "the fish-finding equipment in this dream package covers all possible fishing types. For midlevel tuna, dolphin, kingfish an and even bottomfish, the DFF1-UHD will get you to right depths and help you separate the individual predator fish from the bait." Additional sensor include an AIS transponder, Sirius/XM weather receiver, FI70 instrument data repeater and an external GPS sensor for redundancy.
Furuno’s TZtouch displays coupled with the company’s DFF3D 3D multibeam sonar black box (belowdecks) provide today’s offshore fishermen with a superior view of the water column all around their boats.
