Simrad Unveils New Powerful Display

Simrad Yachting recently announced the new NSO evo3 navigation system, the premier integrated display solution for larger cruising and sportfishing boats.

The new NSO evo3 design simplifies installation, while preserving the power and flexibility that make the NSO series the perfect solution for customizing a system for larger cruising and sportfishing vessels. Connect NSO evo3 to Simrad premium network modules and add GPS, autopilot, keypad controllers and other accessories to create the ideal vessel-wide system.

NSO evo3 includes a true, high-definition display (1920 x 1080) that puts users in total control of on-board electronics through an easy-to-use touchscreen interface. The bright, multi-touch display features unbeatable clarity and can be viewed from any angle, even when wearing polarized sunglasses, and supports up to a six-panel, split-screen layout.

The display is powered by a high-performance iMX6 quad-core processor that takes responsiveness to a new level with quicker chart redraws, the fastest updates and instant response to every tap of the touchscreen. NSO evo3 can easily power current Simrad system technology like Halo Pulse Compression Radar, the S5100 CHIRP sounder module, ForwardScan forward-looking sonar and StructureScan 3D sonar imaging, with power to spare for any future high-performance innovations.

The NSO evo3 can connect to smartphones, tablets and internet hotspots with integrated wireless connectivity, features advanced networking – including HMDI input/output, OP50 support, plus direct connection and control of audio, autopilot and NMEA 2000 and J1939 engines.

“We are excited to bring new NSO evo3 integrated displays to boaters around the globe,” said Leif Ottosson, CEO, Navico. “From the new design and the brightest screens to the most powerful processor and advanced networking capabilities, the NSO evo3 is the perfect starting point for customizing a vessel-wide system.”

The low-profile glass bridge styling of NSO evo3 complements any helm design, from ultra-modern to timeless classic. Offering the perfect combination of form and function, NSO evo3 allows users to create custom helm layouts to suit any activity.

NSO evo3 displays can also be purchased as part of a system kit, which comes with everything needed to build a glass helm system, including a GPS antenna, chart card reader, NMEA 2000 Starter Kit and OP50 Remote Controller. The OP50 provides keypad control of up to six separate displays, perfect for a multi-display helm layout.

Available in 16-, 19- and 24-inch integrated displays, Simrad NSO evo3 is available from authorized dealers and distributors throughout the United States and Canada.
