Glass cockpit

Total integration – the way you want it

Glass Cockpit integrates all driver information in one location. The multi-function, widescreen displays give you a full overview and total control – making your driving environment more harmonized.

Integrated with the Volvo Penta Electronic Vessel Control system (EVC), Glass Cockpit enables you to monitor and control information in one place via a single interface. It provides a full overview of navigation and engine data, together with Easy Boating functions such as Autopilot and Joystick driving.

Available from 7 to 24 inch, the display layouts are fully customizable so that you can decide when, where and how the information is presented. This increases your safety, awareness and enjoyment at sea.


Fully integrated with the EVC

The user-friendly Volvo Penta interface displays navigation data, engine monitoring, warnings, alarms and Easy Boating options such as Autopilot and Joystick Driving. To accommodate different driving styles you can customize the layouts and views making it easier for the driver to decide what, where and when information can be displayed. Certain situations require more focus on specific functions such as reversing cameras and radar.


Fully customizable layouts and views
All active functions and alarms are displayed in the status bar (1). Information overlays can be placed anywhere on the display (2). Information can be divided up to six times with split screen function (3). By pre-programming your layouts, you create a tailor-made display that shows important data and information in the way you want.


Link preset layouts to joystick and control
Customized layouts can be linked to specific buttons on the control and joystick. When you press an assigned button, screen layouts change automatically to the information you need for a specific scenario. For example, when you press the ”docking” button on the joystick, the layout can change and show a docking camera view.

Glass Cockpit screens

There are two types of Multi-Function Display (MFD) available where the screen resolution and material choice varies. Sizes range from 7 to 24 inch and all displays are compatible with each other in order to form a larger display or a network of stations throughout the boat.
