Questionnaire: help improving the Marine MFD App

Good afternoon!

Already two years ago, we launched the first version of our Marine MFD App. Sometimes referred to as glass bridges, HTML5 or Chartplotter App.

See the screenshot below for which user interface I mean.

This app is due for improvement. I know that many people have ideas on how it could be better, as do I myself. And I have hired an external company to design the new version, and they’d like to run a questionnaire.

Do note that the scope is very specifically to run it on a Marine MFD. And while well aware that it can also be used for different applications, and run on a tablet, or phone, and as such in an RV or Off-grid or other mobile and stationary application, those uses are out of scope for now. There is another plan going on for those. So please lets keep this focussed on marine use, thank you.

Here is a link to the questionnaire we’d like to be completed by as many boating users as possible:

If you know someone not on community, please share this with them. Its not needed to have a Community user account.

And also welcome to put comments in the answers and comments below. The UX designer will follow this question, its @B_Wltrs.


Thank you and have a good weekend!

Ps. here is a screenshot of the app. And more documentation is here:

Hi! Yes for sure it is. One thing I’d like to add (in due time… ) for RVs is tank levels.

Are you planning to make the Touch 50 look the same? It would be an improvement. Right now the inconsistent use of amps and watts leads to mental math. The only thing rated in watts on my boat is the generator. Everything else is in amps. You should also be able to customize the screen by deleting things you don't have, solar for example.
