Large, high contrast screen

Easily readable text in almost any setting, including bright sunlight, with more visible information on the screen at all times. This high-resolution display is easy on the eyes, allowing you to get more information from customizable user screens, charting and graphing options without causing eye strain or fatigue.

Dual color backlight

Toggle backlight color between standard white and night-vision-preserving red (NV). The red NV backlight features an optical wavelength selected to help users sustain natural night vision and reduced brightness to avoid detection during night maneuvers.

Secure battery door

Large, O-ring sealed door provides easy, tool-free battery access.

Scratch and breakage-resistant window

Rigid, polycarbonate lens with scratch-coating protects the display from damage.

Corrosion-resistant battery compartment
