Simrad Yachting, a leader in the design and manufacture of world-class marine navigation, autopilot, radar, communications and fish-finding systems, announced today the release of a new software update for NSS evo3, NSS evo2, NSO evo2 and GO Series displays that includes sonar enhancements, C-MAP® charting improvements and touchscreen control of MotorGuide® Xi5 trolling motors.

At the heart of the release is FishReveal™, an exciting new sonar feature that makes fish easier to see on DownScan Imaging™. The upgrade also includes significant enhancements to StructureScan® 3D and StructureScan® HD; plus, a new, easy-to-interpret C-MAP Navigation Palette and support for touchscreen control of MotorGuide® Xi5 trolling motors.

FishReveal Smart Target Viewing

FishReveal is a massive leap forward in fish-finding technology that allows anglers to quickly and easily discover how fish orient themselves in and around cover and structure, with clearly defined fish arches. Unlike traditional CHIRP Sonar views that provide strong fish targets but lack refined structure detail, or DownScan Imaging that provides photo-like images of bottom and structure details but show fish targets as tiny dots; FishReveal™ Smart Target Viewing combines the best data from both technologies, eliminating the need for split-screen viewing and interpretation.

Enhanced Sonar Imaging

Exclusive to NSS evo3 displays, Enhanced Sonar Imaging delivers industry-leading clarity and range, with near-photographic images to each side and below your boat. By making full use of the dynamic colour spectrum, SideScan, DownScan Imaging and StructureScan 3D can now produce richer images with greatly enhanced detail and better contrast. Just as the human eye compensates for varying degrees of darkness, these imaging enhancements automatically increase brightness in darker areas, while simultaneously preventing overexposure in brighter areas. This extends the visible range, making it possible to see what is in the shadows close to the boat or more than 100 feet away.

C-MAP Easy Routing and Navionics Dock-to-Dock Autorouting

Get faster and easier navigation with automatic route planning. This feature simplifies route creation by automatically plotting the shortest and safest course based on the boat's draft, beam and height – creating a route around a landmass, shoals and other fixed navigational hazards. Dock-to-Dock Autorouting requires a Navionics+ or Navionics Platinum chart, while the Easy Routing is activated when using a C-MAP MAX-N+ map.

C-MAP Navigation Palette

C-MAP charts just got a major upgrade in readability that is most apparent near shore, where the colours used for land, docks, anchorage areas, water, and channels are nicely differentiated and water contour lines are distinct. The new palette makes it easier to see where the boat is in relation to a channel, navaid, ledges and drop-offs, or a point of land. The colour scheme is also much easier on the eye.

MotorGuide Xi5 Trolling Motor Control

Control the Xi5 trolling motor* from the touchscreen of your Simrad display, making it easy to maintain your current position or navigate to a new one without leaving the helm. Navigation options include navigating to cursor, a heading, waypoint, along a route, or pre-defined turn pattern.

*Excludes GO7 Displays

“Free software upgrades, like this, clearly demonstrate our commitment for continuous improvement to make the lives of anglers and powerboaters more safe and productive on the water,” said Leif Ottosson, CEO and president, Navico. “Whether you’re looking for ways to find fish and fish-holding structure more quickly, or creating a route that safely gets you back home, game-changing features like FishReveal and automatic routing are key tools that will make the most of your time on the water.”
