Volvo Penta 7” multi-function color display

Volvo Penta’s new 7” color display is a true information center for the boat. The display can show engine data from up to three engines, trip computer information and information from different sensors, e.g. rudder angle, water temperature and freshwater tank.

The display also has a video input. The boat owner can install a camera in the engine room, in the stern or anywhere else on the boat. Intuitive navigation and the My View function make it much simpler to enter one’s own settings.

The 7” display has very good definition thanks to its high resolution. Readability is excellent – the information is clearly visible even in bright sunshine.


The 7” display is designed to fit diesel and gasoline engines with Volvo Penta’s electronic platform EVC with plug-in installation, very reliable function and the ability to update with additional functions when they become available.

The My View function is supplied with a basic setting. The driver can then quite simply choose what data should be shown and in what way. Shortcuts make it simple to turn on or off functions such as Powertrim assistant and Low-speed mode.

The display can show the feed from a video camera mounted anywhere on the boat. For example, the camera could be monitoring the engine room or showing the view astern to simplify docking.

The menu for fuel economy, together with the trip computer function, provides direct information on current and average fuel consumption, distance at current fuel consumption, etc. An important aid for economical and eco-friendly driving.

In the settings menu, the driver can easily make own adjustments: choose one of nine different languages, select units for speed and distance, warning sound volume, etc. It is also easy to make fine adjustments to different EVC functions, such as drive angles for Powertrim assistant and lowest speed with Low-speed mode.
