The Simrad TV80 Systems need one software license to work, but users do not need to obtain any new license string(s) when updating from a previous version of a licensed TV80. The TV80 software has been designed/optimized for Microsoft Windows 10. Windows 7 is also supported but no other/older operating systems. The end-user documentation has not been updated with this release. The current TV80 Reference Manual is included as context-sensitive on-line help with the TV80 software media (USB flash drive).
Simrad’s Catch Monitoring systems can be used with a variety of current and previous generations’ sensors and receivers. All combinations of ITI, PI, and PX sensor platforms are compatible with the latest TV80. All these sensors can be placed on a trawl or purse seine to monitor key parameters. The design of each Simrad sensor is extremely rugged, and they are all built to withstand the daily beating and battering they are subjected to on an operating trawl or purse seine.
