  • Other updates to the side panel. The side panel has gained some useful and handy features. You can now see displays for fresh, gray and black water tank sensors. You can also control speed update intervals, and see the fuel level as percentages.
  • Set trips, routes and places as your destination. Feature that can be found from the side panel allows you to add a destination and see the estimated time of arrival and fuel consumption to get there.

  • Keeping fuel tank(s) in check. This added feature with fuel sensor filtering helps you keep better track of what’s going on with the boat’s fuel levels, as it helps to prevent sudden changes in the fuel tank(s).
  • Keeping track of the fuel levels. Another fuel related new setting that can be found from the side panel of the Q plotter keeps track of the fuel tank capacity. You can see the estimation of distance and time that you still have left to drive with the current fuel level.
