Fishing for a smarter solution

When Navico, known for unsurpassed quality and innovative products, went fishing for a smarter connectivity solution, they chose ClarinoxBlue dual mode Bluetooth protocol stack.

Navico is a market leader in marine electronics. The company is rightly proud to be the world's largest developer, manufacturer and distributor of marine electronics for the recreational market. Their distribution supplying over 100 countries around the world.

This pride extends throughout all levels of the company. It results in a demand for quality from all suppliers. So when seeking new technology for Navico's connectivity requirements, quality and service were high on the list of priorities. Navico chose the ClarinoxBlue solution as the winning provider for Bluetooth® functionality in the Lowrance® Elite-7 TI. Navico's decision was due to the Clarinox innovative approach, simple APIs and enhanced in-built debug capabilities.

The Clarinox experience in wireless product development, combined with the Clarinox portfolio of robust wireless protocols and software tools, placed us in a unique position to ensure the success of this innovative product. The extensive Clarinox experience with Freescale iMX61, and the ability to support both Linux and a variety of Bluetooth chipsets made the decision even easier.

“As the market leader, Navico works hard to stay ahead of the pack. Improvements and upgrades are carefully considered and planned. I am very pleased to say that working with Clarinox made the job of integrating Bluetooth technology quick and relatively painless. This was a great result for Navico.”
