Wireless control manufacturer Dockmate has released a new range of features to be introduced to their TWIN+ remote control transmitter.
The updates for the TWIN+ include an easier-to-use interface for the control’s touchpad remote control as well as an added wireless charging function. The TWIN+ will also gain a level of advanced functionality, including a new vibration response with LED and buzzer feedback, offering three types of feedback for an improved safety and intuitive experience.
The Belgian company, which has been producing yacht-specific wireless remotes since 2012, also announced the release of two new products to their collection: the Cradle, a custom-designed fixed mount with wireless charging capabilities, and the TWIST joystick.
The Cradle, which is waterproof, UV-resistant, and has an anodised aluminium chassis, can be mounted anywhere and can be used to charge mobile phones. The TWIST joystick is compatible with the Cradle, allowing users to choose between fixed joystick or remote control.
“We’re the fastest-growing wireless remote control company in the world because we understand what boaters want with this type of safety equipment, and we’re committed to providing a continuously improving system,” says Dockmate president, Dirk Illegems.
“While the Dockmate wireless remote control system is well known for being an affordable and highly innovative product for slow-speed manoeuvring, our next generation offers even more flexibility and the incredible cost savings of adding a fixed joystick, and replacing it with a dual fixed and wireless system.”
