New Stuff: Simrad NSS evo3 MFDs

simrad

Simrad’s new NSS evo3 series of multifunction displays offers advanced connectivity of all boating electronics.

The series includes 16”, 12”, 9” and 7” models with an updated, easy-to-use interface with TouchSensible touchscreen, keypad and rotary-control knob, making the units easy to operate while underway. The interface includes expanded scrolling functions for quicker access to networked technologies; restyled Exit, Power and MOB buttons in the corners of the keypad for easier access in low light; a new menu button and cursor-scrolling keypad grouping for easy, fast operation when users lock-out the touchscreen; and a new programmable WheelKey button that can be customized to serve a variety of personalized functions or direct autopilot control. Other features include intuitive touchscreen software that increases precision with modernized bridge-control modes; a press-and-hold cursor function that immediately opens the settings menu for the function of interest; and a simple sonar menu shift improvement that allows the user to always see the most recent sonar data.

Simrad SolarMAX HD display technology provides high-definition visuals and clarity with wide viewing angles, designed for use in direct sunlight or low-light conditions. Advanced in-plane switching (IPS) screens provide color accuracy and boost resolution, and are designed to enhance viewing of the Halo pulse-compression radar PPI and dual-channel CHIRP sonar. Optimized LED backlighting and contrast levels further improve the ability to see clearly in a wide range of conditions. Most importantly, the touchscreen works accurately even when covered in spray.

Dual-channel CHIRP delivers wide-angle and deep-view sonar images from the same transducer (with a dual-channel CHIRP sonar transducer), or from multiple transducers. Further, the user can cover more water and mark fish targets more clearly with Network Dual Sounder technology, which provides sonar data from a network of CHIRP transducers across all helm stations, with the ability to display multiple sonar inputs simultaneously.

NSS evo3 provides next-gen-connected vessels with a fast, 10 Hz internal GPS antenna, full autopilot integration, engine-monitoring interfaces and TripIntel trip computer, making it easy to plan journeys based on fuel range, tide and detailed trip history. Built in WiFi enables access to GoFree online services to download software updates and purchase a wide choice of global cartography solutions, and delivers smartphone monitoring and tablet control to extend the display’s reach well beyond the helm. With GoFree wireless capabilities and the new Simrad Network Analyzer Service Assistant, users can keep their entire system up to date by automatically downloading and installing the latest software for the display and all compatible modules connected by NMEA 2000 or Ethernet.

Broadband 3G, Broadband 4G, ForwardScan sonar and the award-winning Halo radar system are fully compatible with the NSS evo3.

NSS Evo3 is compatible with optional cartography, including Insight Genesis custom mapping, Insight PRO by C-MAP, Lake Insight HD by C-MAP, C-MAP MAX-N+, Navionics and more. Charts can be downloaded over WiFi or installed using the unit’s dual microSD card slots.
