Take a look at the new Simrad Yachting integrated display above. If you can’t see it there, it’s probably not worth seeing. The six-panel, split-screen touchscreen display on the new NSO evo3 is designed to be the premiere integrated display for larger cruising boats, and it’s made to be easy to see from any viewing angle (even if you’re wearing polarized sun glasses).
The idea is to connect the NSO evo3 to other Simrad network modules and add GPS, autopilot, keypad controllers and other accessories to create a vessel-wide system. The high-definition (1920 x 1080) display puts you in total control of all onboard electronics, and can connect with smartphones and tablets. It is powered by a high-performance iMX6 quad-core processor with fast chart redraws and updates and instant response to every tap of the screen.
“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,” says Leif Ottosson, CEO of Navico, which owns Simrad.
The new displays can be bought as part of a system kit, available in 16-, 19-, and 24-inch integrated displays, starting at $7,699. http://simrad-yachting.com
