SEVERNA PARK, Md.—The National Marine Electronics Association named the 10 products that will compete for the 2010 Technology Award. Since 2009, the Technology Award is awarded to the best new marine electronics product.
The products will be judged on innovation, benefit to boaters, practicality, and value. Judging the products will be Ben Ellison, owner of the marine electronics blog Panbo, Dean Travis Clarke, host of Sport Fishing Television, and Tim Queeney, editor of Ocean Navigator and Ocean Voyager magazines.
"We're very excited about the product entries for this year's Technology Award," said NMEA President and Executive Director David Hayden in a recent release from the company. "They represent a wide range of hardware and software innovations that directly benefit boaters by enhancing what they experience at sea. Now it's up to our panel of distinguished and talented judges to select the best of the best. We're grateful to them for their thoroughness in making what will be a very difficult decision."
The winner will be announced at the annual NMEA banquet on Oct. 2 at the Sheraton Seattle Hotel.
