B&G®, the world's leading sailing navigation and instrument specialist are pleased to announce the new multi-purpose Triton2 instrument and Triton2 Pilot System Control Pad.

The new Triton2 sailing instrument provides sailors with the clearest display of key data available, using 'one key' functionality that can show wind, speed, depth, AIS and B&G's specialist sailing features such as Sailsteer and Laylines. The new Triton2 can also be combined with a pilot system and controller to deliver an outstanding, accurate and reliable sailing autopilot.

The Transflective LCD technology makes use of reflected sunlight where available to provide superior daytime visibility and lower power consumption when compared with traditional backlit-only displays. Combined with the highly efficient LED backlighting the Triton2 Display is a clear winner, day or night. The Triton2 Display's LCD panel is optically bonded to the anti-reflective display window, completely eliminating the possibility of condensation or fogging within the display unit.

"B&G's Triton series was first released in 2012 and very quickly became the 'must have' instrument on sailboats across the world." Said Leif Ottosson, President and CEO of Navico, adding, "The Triton2 is clearer, slimmer at just 8mm thin and is even easier to use, while retaining our specialist B&G sailing features.

This smart multi-purpose instrument can be configured to display multiple 'pages' of information such as vessel speed, depth, heading, wind speed and direction and AIS data. Users can quickly switch between pages to access the information using its highly-responsive silicon keys making the Triton2 display easy to use with wet or gloved hands and in all weather conditions. The Triton2 is also waterproof to IPX7 standards.

Designed for easy installation, the Triton2 display offers a front-mount option that requires no access to the back of the console or panel for fixings, and single-cable NMEA 2000® connectivity for both power and data. An intuitive on-screen menu system makes it simple to configure pages suited to your yacht and available instrument data. The Triton2 display is compatible with a wide range of instruments, sensors and other NMEA 2000® data sources.

In addition to the Triton2 there is a new pilot keypad, compatible with a wide range of B&G pilot computers. The keypad is a fully functional autopilot controller featuring Intelligent Sail Steering functionality with compass and wind steering, Smart Manoeuvre controls to tack at the touch of a button and chartplotter integration to enable waypoint and route navigation.

The Triton2 display (RRP £490 / €573 including VAT) and pilot keypad (RRP £319 / €384 including VAT) will be available from September 2016. The Triton" Autopilot controller and 4.1 inch display pack (RRP £779 / €982 including VAT)
