Major TZtouch2 Software Update
Provides Complete Global UI Refresh & Compatibility With TZtouch3 MFDs

July 13, 2020
Sales Bulletin #2020-25
We’re excited to announce a groundbreaking software update for NavNet TZtouch2. As of Wednesday, July 8th, all TZTL12F, TZTL15F and TZT2BB models are being shipped with version 7.01 software, which includes a greatly enhanced User Interface (UI), along with many other new features, enhancements, and changes.
Also included in this update is compatibility with TZtouch3 MFDs, FAR2xx8 Radars, the new TimeZero iCloud ecosystem, and TimeZero v4 software. 
New: Two Finger Tap for Full Screen Indication
Quickly go from quarter or half screen to full screen and back.
New: Customizable UI Size
Change the size and scale of the User Interface to fit your boating needs. The smaller size can fit more information on the screen, while the larger size makes it easy to press buttons, enter data, and view from a distance.
New: Cloud Solutions by My TimeZero
Points, routes, boundaries (new), photos, and catch data can be synchronized among TZtouch2 MFDs, TZtouch3 MFDs, TimeZero PC software, and the TZ iBoat app, via the cloud. As an example, you can create routes at home using TZ iBoat, then download them to onboard TZtouch2/3 MFDs. Data is automatically synchronized and stored to the registered My TimeZero account.
Compatibility with the New TZ First Mate App
TZ First Mate is a new app for managing catch details, such as fish type, length, weight, and photo. These details can be synchronized with NavNet TZtouch2/3 MFDs, TimeZero PC software, and TZ iBoat.
New Welcome Screen
Conveniently select between Demo Mode, Tutorial Video and Navigate.
The complete list of features and enhancements found in v7.01 software is too numerous to list here. Please refer to the NavNet TZtouch2 v7.01 software overview document for complete details.

Who should update? Any TZtouch2 user who wants to take advantage of the updated TZtouch3 UI, new features, new TimeZero ecosystem, etc., and for compatibility with TZtouch3 MFDs.

Who should not update their MFDs? Anyone with a mixed system that includes a TZT9, TZT14, TZTBB, Suzuki SMD12/16, TimeZero v3 and below, or anyone who wishes to retain the limited Active Captain capabilities. Active Captain is not available with TZtouch2 v7.01 software. Click here for an overview of the features available in the new TZT2 v7.01 software update.

Because software v7.01 includes an updated OS (operating system) as well as an application update and data file updates, the software cannot be updated via the built-in automatic Wi-Fi update feature.

A pre-programmed software update kit is also available for a nominal fee. Reference part number TZ2-SOF-SD1 for the TZTL12F/TZTL15F and part number TZT-2BB-SOF for the TZT2BB.
