Simrad has just added two new chartplotters with larger displays and radar compatibility to its award-winning GO series. The new GO12 XSE and GO7 XSR, now part of Simrad’s popular GO stand-alone chartplotter series, are both multi-touch chartplotters for power boats with user-friendly navigation features for cruising, fishing and watersports.
The new GO12 XSE (pictured above) has a 12-inch display, while the upgraded GO7 XSR has a restyled glass-helm design, plus radar capability that was not previously available on that model. Both units have bright displays and easy-to-use interfaces. The multi-touch controls are intuitive, and probably will seem similar to controls on smartphones and tablets.
The home screen and menu layout on both models allow quick access to all functions, and the units have adjustable split screens and customized panel layouts with clearly-captioned icons. They are fully compatible with Simrad radar, and connect to NMEA 2000-compatible sensors on board.
Price for the GO12 XSE starts at $2,149; for the GO7 XSR, $649.
