Volvo Penta Glass Cockpit System Wins DAME Award at METS 2013

Dame award logo2

The unique Glass Cockpit system means a clean, easy-to-use dashboard – and more importantly – enhanced overview and control of both engine and navigation in one place.

Integrated with the EVC system, the Glass Cockpit gathers all driver information and displays it in one spot. The easy-to-handle, pinch-to-zoom displays give you instant control. Six displays in two versions are available in different sizes from 8 to 19”.

One look. One touch. One system.
When you power up your boat all screens light up simultaneously, in a car-like manner. All settings that you control, including instrument dimming, are carried out concurrently at the helm and the flybridge. With the Glass Cockpit system you get a common, ergonomic design – and interface – for the whole dashboard, with push-buttons on the controls and touch-buttons on the screens.

Auto guidance
This unique feature searches through all relevant charts to create a route you can follow – and avoid shallow water, buoys and other obstacles. Coupled with the autopilot, it not only shows the way, it takes you there!

Total integration
Full EVC functionality means that you monitor functions like Dynamic Positioning System, Interceptors and Autopilot through the displays.
