Simrad, a designer and manufacturer of marine electronics, announced its new multifunction navigation system, the Simrad NSO evo2. Setting a new standard in the Glass Bridge navigation experience, the advanced NSO evo2 combines high-power processing for lightning fast charting, sonar, radar and entertainment, dual widescreen displays for uncompromising style, a user interface for intuitive multi-touch control, and compatibility for unrivaled integration. Suited to recreational blue water powerboats and commercial vessels, the NSO evo2 features multifunction navigation.

Simrad totes its new navigation system as the world’s first multifunction system to offer dual-discrete video output with full HD resolution, Simrad Yachting’s new NSO evo2’s black box distributed system is two powerful MFDs in one. Whether using side-by-side monitors or a single monitor and a GoFree-enabled tablet, the system’s quad-core processors deliver unprecedented, completely independent, display, performance and control of the latest in navigation functionality, the manufacturer said. An expandable system, NSO evo2’s substantial connectivity options provides connectivity with other NS-Series devices onboard as well as a range of Simrad Performance Modules.

The NSO evo2’s MO Series monitors provide a stunning low profile, glass-bridge look that provides more screen and less border than other solutions. Available in 16-inch, 19-inch and 24-inch Pilot House (P) non-touch and high-bright Multi-Touch (T) and models, the monitors feature on-glass menu keys, and can be flush mounted in a dash or installed on a VESA mount. Each monitor ships with black and silver trim options.

With TouchSensible navigation, the NSO evo2 harnesses the power of Multi-Touch with full support for OP40 wired remote control, to deliver a dynamic and intuitive new user interface, Simrad said. Key navigation features are quickly accessible from the system’s icon-driven home screen, charts can be moved, zoomed and personalized with familiar consumer electronics gestures, and the new screen splits and data panel configurations are optimized for widescreen viewing. The NSO evo2 also supports the widest choice of cartography options in the market, including Jeppesen C-Map Max-N charts, Navionics Gold and Platinum, Nautic Insight and Lake Insight, Insight Genesis and other third-party products – including the ability to navigate using two distinct chart types simultaneously.

Providing navigation with expansion capabilities, the NSO evo2 provides plug-and-play integration Simrad Broadband 4G and 3G Radar, GoFree Wireless Wifi-1, BSM-2 CHIRP and BSM-1 echo sounders, StructureScan Sonar Imaging, SonarHub Sounder, SonicHub marine audio server, Sirius satellite weather/radio and more. The systems pre-loaded driver library also allows for plug-and-play connectivity to marine electronics displays and add-on technologies from countless manufacturers.

Available from Simrad dealers beginning November 2013, the exceptional Simrad NSO evo2 black box has a suggested retail price of $5,695, with MO-Series Multi-Touch and Pilot House displays ranging from $4,449-10,000. An intelligently engineered NSO16 evo2 premium performance package includes the NSO evo2 black box and two MO-16T high-bright, multi-touch monitors for $12,999 – providing the benefits of dual independent displays for the price of one. The system has a two-year limited parts and labor warranty and is protected by the Simrad Advantage Service Program.
