TAMPA, FL – JL Marine Systems, Inc., maker of Power-Pole shallow water anchors, announces a new addition to its product offering that will once again change the way we fish. Not only will it change the way we fish, but it will change the way we enjoy our time on the water – no matter the vessel, no matter the size, no matter the boater interests.
Introducing Power-Pole VISION onboard marine accessory management and multi-media tablet. This all-in-one touch-screen tablet allows multiple boat accessories to be connected and controlled by one smart device. VISION is the marine industry’s new Digital Dash. Anything on the boat that has ON/OFF capability can now be expanded and custom controlled with dimmers, presets and timers. The six-outlet Power-Pole CM-I/O-6 Switch allows multiple inputs to the VISION unit, which integrates operation of all accessories through one central device via C-Monster 2.0 protocol.
VISION runs on the Android platform.
VISION is the first marine tablet that runs on the Android platform, it is NMEA capable and it can provide services beyond just the boat. Connected via Wi-Fi or personal hot spot, VISION can connect with thousands of Android apps. Use your favorite fishing or navigation apps; use the built-in camera to take hands-free photos of you holding that big catch. Then post and share photos, check email, watch your favorite sports, movies or videos. Using the C-Monster App you can also customize any of your Power-Pole CM2 family of anchors and accessories.
VISION lets you see everything.
Once VISION is connected to your boat’s accessories it lets you see and control everything. Add NMEA connectivity and you can see engine data like speed, rpm and fuel levels.
The super-bright screen is readable in full sun even with polarized sunglasses making it easy to read anywhere. Our patented enhanced map viewing technology lets you easily see and track your position using satellite images. VISION features daylight and nighttime settings, it even lets you select different background themes to compliment your vessel’s decor. And the exclusive swipe-down Water Shade protects and locks the screen against water spray that might activate or change your screen settings while running across the water.
