Furuno Goes Big With New NavNet TZtouchXL Ultra-Sharp 22″ & 24″ MFDs
Furuno has introduced two new, extra-large 22″ and 24″ MFDs. Aptly named TZtouchXL, these super-wide, full-HD (1920×1080 FHD resolution) MFDs include all of the features that make NavNet TZtouch3 the easiest yet most powerful system on the market.
Camas, WA – Over the years, Furuno has done an exceptional job listening to their customers by developing new software features and adding a smaller 9″display to their NavNet TZtouch3 product line. Now, Furuno is responding to customer requests at the other end of the spectrum with the introduction of two new, extra-large 22″ and 24″ models. Aptly named TZtouchXL, these super-wide, full-HD (1920×1080 FHD resolution) MFDs include all of the features that make NavNet TZtouch3 the easiest yet most powerful system on the market.
The TZT22X and TZT24X deliver all of the features that make NavNet TZtouch3 a breeze to operate, plus you can split these large screens into six different windows. The edge-swipe feature makes finding what you need simple and intuitive. Swipe from the left to view or hide navigation data, from the right to see all of your shortcuts, from the bottom to view layer options with new organizational tools, or swipe down from the top to easily access your own customized Quick Pages. A single tap selects most options, so you’re never more than a swipe and tap away from the most commonly accessed features. TZtouchXL comes with ten preset screen configurations, or you can quickly build your own custom displays with up to a 6-way split screen layout.
“Our customers spoke, and we listened,” said Brad Reents, President of Furuno USA, Inc. “Owners of larger vessels have asked for all of the features ofNavNet TZtouch3 in a bigger MFD, and we’re thrilled to deliver on that request. TZtouchXL packs all of the options a captain could ask for into a larger display with the same simple and familiar interface. The edge-to-edge all-glass look of TZtouchXL will add to the elegance and sophistication of any helm with all of the power, responsiveness, and ease of use that NavNet TZtouch3 is known for.”
Mariners with TZtouch3 networks can easily incorporate TZtouchXL into their existing network or build their own from the ground up for the perfect navigation suite, including:
- Award-winning Solid-State (NXT) or Magnetron (X-Class) Radars
- Multiple power-packed Fish Finder options
- Award-winning DFF3D Multibeam Sonar
- Multiple AIS and VHF options
- NavPilot Autopilots
- Satellite Compasses
- Multiple weather tracking options
TZtouchXL takes full advantage of TZtouch3 components already in the network, including the new CHIRP Side Scan native to the TZT12F,TZT16F, or TZT19F, scanning both port and starboard to allow boaters to see the shape of bottom structure in high definition. Operating on a lower frequency spectrum than competitors, Furuno’s CHIRP Side-Scan reveals the shape of fish targets and fish-hoarding structure up to 750 feet off each side of your vessel.
The new front-mount design of the TZT22X and TZT24X allows for perfect side-by-side installation with zero spacing gap between MFDs for an elegant and refined appearance. Mariners looking to increase the size, speed, power, and functionality of the electronics on their helms this year must take a serious look at going on a power trip with Furuno and their all-new NavNet TZtouchXL MFDs.

Seem like a light year for new releases all around – companies still catching up on supply? Interesting Furuno releases these models given backlogs on the TZT16F and TZT19F.
Seattle boat show had the ICOM M510BB – the blackbox version of the M510 – but it doesn’t need a separate box for the NMEA2000. I hadn’t seen much news on that in the US, but find that a step in the right direction.
Garmin just had some stereo equipment and Echomap improvements.
Raymarine brought the PRO line up to the Axiom+ level.
Mostly iterative stuff no?
