Simrad NX powerful nav solutions for vessels 7m+

'The Simrad NX40 and NX45 NavStations are for power and sail boats greater than 7m in length'    Navico
The new Simrad NX40 and NX45 NavStations have been specifically designed for power and sail boats greater than 7m in length.

Engineered to lead boating’s growing trend towards powerful ‘information machines’, the systems are capable of providing advanced chart plotting, radar, echosounder, camera images, instrument data, engine data, fuel data and more, in one user-friendly display.


Featuring the same functions and easy-to-use controls, the NX40 has an 8.4' (21.3cm), sunlight viewable, high-resolution TFT colour display, while the NX45 has a larger 12.1' (30.7cm) display. The easy-to-read, bonded displays are ideal for presenting the detailed bottom contour data, land data and value-added information found on compatible C-Map MAX electronic charts.

Each system features a built-in, high-performance echosounder, which can be matched to a transducer of the owner’s choice. The NavStation will automatically adjust to 600W or 1kW, according to the selected transducer.

The NX40 and NX45 can also be easily upgraded to provide advanced radar functions, with a choice of radar systems – 2kW radome, 4kW radome or 6kW open array.

Using Simrad’s NMEA 2000®-based SimNet data-sharing network, these NavStation systems can also be interfaced with a range of compatible Simrad products, including instruments, autopilots and VHF radios.

Simrad’s new AI50 AIS (Automatic Identification System) connected to the NavStation allows boaters to see and be seen by other AIS-equipped vessels for improved safety on congested waterways.

The powerful Simrad NX40 and NX45 NavStations will be launched in Australia at next month’s Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show.
