mazu integrates Raymarine Axiom MFDs

The popular mazu and mSeries system from SkyMate now works in conjunction with leading electronics manufacturer Raymarine, so that boaters can pull up satellite data on their MFD. At the 2018 Miami International Boat show mazu show cases these new capabilities in tent C booth 609.

mazu features like Email and SMS texts, SOS transponding, Weather forecasts and more can now be opened directly on a boater’s Raymarine MFD. The mSeries system can still be used with the mazu iPad app which provides users with an enhanced dashboard.

Modern communications are important to boaters. Now cruisers and offshore fishermen have more ways than ever to stay connected when their travels take them outside of cellular and WiFi coverage. mazu gives boaters access to reliable global satellite connectivity using the Iridium network. mazu is a data only system where Email messages and texts, can be sent and received, weather forecasts can be downloaded, and navigation functions can be utilised through the system. The new integration with Raymarine means the mazu system can be accessed in more ways than ever.


Ways to use mazu:

  1. The award winning mazu iPad app.
  2. Link to mazu while on board using any device with a browser.
  3. NEW! Pull up mazu directly on your Raymarine Axiom MFD.

Easy Do-It-Yourself installation means mazu’s mSeries system can be fitted on any type of boat. Using the mazu system is simple no matter which way the information is accessed. Once the system is installed it connects wirelessly to the chosen displays on board. Boaters can connect at the helm with their MFD and still use the mazu app or browser interface on a different device in another area of the boat. For vessels with a flybridge or multiple MFD’s mazu can connect to both devices without running any wires.
