MRAD offers the perfect device for compact sports- and day-boat navigation in competition.

Marine Radio Acoustic Devices (M-RAD) is a preferred supplier of the Simrad range of marine electronics products.  They will be offering one of these units as a prize at this year’s Cape Town International Boat Show.

The prize is a Simrad GO7 7″ Multi-touch chart plotter with built in Echosounder, GPS and NMEA 2000 interface. The GO7 is an ideal fit aboard RIBs and sportboats, offering a range of functions from navigation, to engine monitoring, to control of your onboard sound system. Packed with features, the compact display brings together built-in GPS, proven Simrad depth- and fish-finding sonar technology, and GoFree wireless capability behind a simple yet highly customisable touchscreen interface.
