Simrad just announced its latest generation of multifunction displays, the Simrad NSX, during a global livestreaming event from Egersund, Norway, introducing new chartplotters and fishfinders for powerboats.
The new mid-range NSX line will be available in 7-, 9- and 12-inch displays and is based on an all-new operating system. Simrad will launch the new line at the Miami boat show, starting next Wednesday.
NSX has a new interface with a user-friendly touchscreen with clear views. Charts include C-MAP nav capability and are compatible with sonar, radar and autopilot systems. Simrad says its Setup Wizards system will help users through every step of the setup.
“With the NSX, our development team reimagined and redefined what a chartplotter and a fishfinder can be for consumers,” said Mike Fargo, EVP of Simrad Yachting, “simplifying the experience from the moment you take NSX out of the box all the way to the farthest open-water adventures.”
Fishermen can use NSX to see high-res images below and to the sides with Active Imaging, CHIRP sonar, SideScan/DownScan Imaging and Fish Reveal; they can integrate the system with their radar and autopilot.
NSX is easy to set up and has a touchscreen with various display sizes and multiple screen configurations. Users can customize the screen and edit the instruments bar. High-res bathymetry shows accurate contour lines down to a one-foot level. The system has enhanced day and night modes so users can go out in all weather and lighting conditions, and they can stay up-to-date with the Simrad App.
The NSX starts at $1,049. Read more:
