AN innovative product launched in the UK by Raymarine at the Southampton Boat Show last week has won an award.

Its new e7 multi-function display, which works wirelessly so boat owners can view their screens on their computer tablet, was selected as the Best New Boating Product at the 2011 Newport International Boat Show in America.

Jim Hands, Raymarine’s director of marketing, said: ‘The e7’s built-in Wi-Fi expands charts, sonar, radar, and thermal night vision beyond the helm all without wires.

‘It’s truly amazing technology.’
