Simrad launches NSO evo3 navigation system


(EGERSUND, Norway) — Simrad Yachting, a leader in the design and manufacture of marine navigation, autopilot, radar, communications and fishfinding systems, has announced the new NSO evo3 navigation system, an integrated display solution for larger cruising and sportfishing boats.

The new NSO evo3 design simplifies installation while preserving the power and flexibility that make the NSO series ideal for customizing a system. Connect NSO evo3 to Simrad premium network modules and add GPS, autopilot, keypad controllers and other accessories.

NSO evo3 includes a high-definition display (1920 x 1080) that puts users in total control of onboard electronics through an easy-to-use touchscreen interface. The bright, multi-touch display can be viewed from any angle, even when wearing polarized sunglasses, and supports up to a six-panel, split-screen layout.

The display is powered by a high-performance iMX6 quad-core processor that provides quicker chart redraws, the fastest updates and instant response to every tap of the touchscreen. NSO evo3 can power current Simrad system technology like Halo pulse compression radar, the S5100 CHIRP sounder module, ForwardScan forward-looking sonar and StructureScan 3D sonar imaging, with power to spare for any future high-performance innovations.

The NSO evo3 can connect to smartphones, tablets and internet hotspots with integrated wireless connectivity, features advanced networking – including HMDI input/output, OP50 support, plus direct connection and control of audio, autopilot and NMEA 2000 and J1939 engines.

NSO evo3 displays also can be purchased as part of a system kit, which comes with everything needed to build a glass helm system, including a GPS antenna, chart card reader, NMEA 2000 starter kit and OP50 remote controller. The OP50 provides keypad control of up to six separate displays.

Available in 16-, 19- and 24-inch integrated displays, Simrad NSO evo3 is available from authorized dealers and distributors throughout the United States and Canada. For more information, visit
