Simrad Yachting’s newest multifunction display—the Simrad NSX– was publicly unveiled this week during a global livestream event, offering the latest evolution in chartplotters and fishfinders for powerboaters as a new midrange product in the Simrad line. Available in 7-, 9- and 12-inch display sizes and based on a new operating system built from the ground up to redefine boating experiences, the Simrad NSX is going to be on display at next week’s Miami International Boat Show (Feb. 16-20).
Simrad is going to debut the new NSX multifunction display at next week’s Miami International Boat Show.
According to a press release, NSX features an innovative and modern interface with a new, intuitive touchscreen experience with crystal clear views. Charts include powerful C-MAP navigation capabilities and compatibility with sonar, radar and autopilot systems. Simple Setup Wizards guide users through each step during device setup, and Simrad app integration makes connectivity from your smartphone extremely easy.
“The electronics for boating navigation have evolved so much over the decades, but with this particular product we’ve really focused on making boating adventures and navigation both easier and more accessible than ever,” said Mike Fargo, Simrad Yachting’s executive vice president. “I love that about this product. With the NSX, our development team re-imagined and re-defined what a chartplotter and fishfinder can be for consumers, simplifying the experience from the moment you take NSX out of the box all the way to the furthest open water adventures.”
Packed with the full suite of Simrad technology at your fingertips, NSX is designed to deliver a wide eco-system allowing users to expand the multifunction display with additional functionality, easier integrations and support for a wide range of third-party applications. Boaters who love fishing can utilize NSX to view high-resolution images below and to the sides with Active Imaging and CHIRP sonar, SideScan/DownScan Imaging and FishReveal– or search even greater depths with a wide range of compatible transducers. Users can integrate easily with their radar and get the most out of their AutoPilot systems by connecting to Autorouting.
“For more than 75 years, Simrad has built a tradition of reliability, safety and innovation,” Fargo said. “The NSX is designed toward adventurers of the water lifestyle … weekend cruising, family fishing, diving, watersports, getting to the sandbar and back—the NSX works great for all that. We’ve designed it to be simpler and easier to use and having the new OS as the platform to build on has been a big part of making it a more seamless experience for boaters.”
“Fundamentally, the ultimate experience is that it’s easier to obtain value for the boater, and easier to use the product,” said Jarred Clayton, Simrad Yachting’s chief technology officer. “There’s 100 small things that the design team have improved upon based on customer feedback to make it a lot better. We absolutely have the world’s best charts on this product and that’s something we’re critically proud of.”
