Video Information System with Integrated Onboard Network
Supraís new VISION system, or Video Information System with Integrated Onboard Network, is the brains of the companyís rider-friendly boat control. Available for the first time in Supraís 2010 boat lineup, the VISION system is much more than just an LCD screen in the dash. Itís a fully integrated boat control network that greatly improves the overall boating experience.†
With VISION, you can create user profiles that automatically adjust ballast levels, wake plate settings and cruise speeds for every rider in your crew. The systemís GPS chart plotting lets you pinpoint your location at all times, and you can always find your way back to the dock with VISIONís built-in tracking system. Access the multimedia system and control the stereo while also watching video from a tower camera or handheld camcorder. VISION even makes it possible to hook up your video iPod and watch instructional videos that you download from the web.
While there are several other dashboard color displays on the market, the VISION is the only system available that integrates ballast monitoring and control; speed-based automatic Smart Plate control; Zero Off GPS cruise; full GPS chart plotting with depth contours; a true iPod interface with a dedicated multimedia page; automatic speed-based stereo volume control; full engine diagnostics with code descriptions; dedicated day- and night-mode viewing; and much, much more. But the true beauty of the Supra VISION system is when you use it.
Supra spent more than three years developing and testing VISION to ensure that the system would be user- and rider-friendly. The developers spent hundreds of hours playing with user interfaces from a variety of similar systems (iPhones, handheld GPS units, smart phones, gaming systems, portable media players, integrated automotive control systems) with the goal of making a system that would allow anyone to sit in the driverís seat and have a fun and easy driving experience. The end result is a powerful system that anyone can control immediately.
