PHOENIX, Ariz. – FUSION®, a worldwide leader in marine entertainment, announced today its FUSION-Link™ entertainment protocol is now supported by the Humminbird ION and ONIX series. Providing the ability to control audio capabilities and functions of the FUSION 700 and 205 Series Marine Entertainment System directly from ION and ONIX multifunction displays, FUSION-Link™ makes it easy for Humminbird owners to enjoy their onboard audio and video entertainment.
“We are very pleased to partner with Humminbird to bring FUSION-Link™ integration to their truly advanced ION and ONIX systems,” said Chris Baird, CEO, FUSION Electronics. “Now, Humminbird owners can enjoy the convenience of our award-winning marine entertainment at their fingertips.”
The only ‘True-Marine™’ entertainment solutions on the market, FUSION stereos give Humminbird owners unparalleled reliability and performance, and Multi-Zone™ audio configuration specific to their vessels. FUSION’s innovative FUSION-Link™ allows boaters to navigate all stereo sources from their Multifunction Display (MFD) and provides full control of iPod/iPhone/MTP music libraries via track, artist, album or playlist with the same ease-of-use and familiar control as on the 700 or 205 Series itself. Boaters can control the individual audio zones of a vessel separately or together. Bass, midrange, treble and subwoofer levels are also adjustable.
"We are pleased the Humminbird Cross Touch™ interface on the newly released ONIX & ION products will deliver full audio control to our customers,” said Dale Logue, marketing director, Humminbird. “Allowing full integration of this product is a complement to our powerful, innovative marine systems.”
Humminbird is the latest marine electronics manufacturer to offer FUSION-Link™ as a new level of entertainment integration for MFDs and other displays. FUSION’s partnership with Humminbird highlights the overwhelming success of the industry standard FUSION-Link™ technology and its functionality.
