Where To Buy

    Key Technologies

    The NSS16 evo2 is engineered for performance, functionality and flexible control. Its TouchSensible interface provides multi-touch interaction for ease of use when cruising, as well as a keypad and a rotary push-to-enter dial for quick and effective use on those days when waves and boat movement make it hard to use a touchscreen accurately.

    Simrad Yachting’s HEROiC software has been optimised for the NSS16 evo2’s widescreen HD display and multi-touch interface, making use of common gestures that smartphone and tablet users will find familiar. A new Nav page puts key navigational information together in one place, and customisable favourites allow quick access to the functions you use most.

    An integrated SonarHub™ sounder combines award-winning StructureScan® HD sonar imaging for a 180-degree picture-like view of the bottom, and CHIRP-enabled Broadband Sounder™ technology for reliable fish detection and accurate bottom tracking at all depths. Vertical heave compensation, available with the optional HS60 or HS70 satellite compass, removes the “wavy” vertical effect of ocean swells on sonar images – offering superior imaging of the seabed and fish targets.

    The NSS16 evo2 provides full autopilot integration for control from its TouchSensible display, and the embedded high-gain 10Hz GPS/GLONASS receiver provides precise location information without external hardware on most fibreglass boats.

    Engineered for form and function, the NSS16 evo2 enhances the helm of any vessel. Its flush-mount design provides a professional, low profile look that is complemented by classic black or brushed silver trim panels – both included with every system.

    GoFree™ Wireless

    Available with the optional WIFI-1 module, GoFree™ wireless capabilities connect your multifunction display to the world. Browse and purchase a wide range of cartography online from the GoFree™ Shop, downloading charts directly to your display’s memory card without leaving the helm. Upload sonar logs recorded during your voyages directly from your display to the Insight Genesis cloud service, which creates detailed depth-contour, vegetation location, and bottom hardness maps – the perfect way to better explore your favourite inland and coastal fishing spots.

    Anywhere you have a wireless internet connection, you have access to GoFree™ services – from your home Wi-Fi when your boat is trailered in the driveway, to your marina’s Wi-Fi when you’re sitting at the dock.

    Out on the water, GoFree™ brings the screen of your multifunction display right to your iPhone or Android smartphone, and lets you control your display remotely from your iPad or Android tablet.

    Easy System-Wide Software Updates

    Driven by our strong commitments to quality and innovation, we regularly release free software updates to enhance the capabilities of Simrad multifunction displays, expansion modules and accessories. GoFree™ wireless capabilities make it easy to keep your entire Simrad system up to date, automatically downloading and installing the latest software not only for your display but for all compatible Simrad modules connected by NMEA 2000® or Ethernet.

    Bridge Control

    Easily manage multiple displays across a helm station with Bridge Control. Link up to four displays as a ‘bridge’, then create your own bridge presets for activities such as docking, navigation, fishing, or diving. Bridge presets control what appears on each display, and let you configure an entire helm station with just one simple action.

    Bridge Control effortlessly extends to vessels with dual helms or multiple stations, with the ability to define up to four separate bridges. Each bridge has its own displays and presets: set up the cockpit with echosounder and StructureScan displays for fishing, while dedicating your flybridge displays to navigation and autopilot. Adapt your configuration as your needs or equipment change, with the ability to create, edit, and delete bridges and presets on the fly.

    Bridge Control works with any of the Simrad NSS evo2 multifunction displays, and NSO evo2 modular performance navigation systems.

    Plan and Manage Trips with TripIntel™

    Designed for power boaters, TripIntel technology tracks and displays the key information you need to plan safe and enjoyable days on the water. Make smart decisions with fuel range overlaid on charts, easy access to current and future tide levels, and a detailed history of your previous trips including the route you took and how your boat performed.

    Achieve Maximum Fuel Economy

    The NSS evo2 Cruise Performance Indicator makes it easy to tune trim and throttle while underway to achieve maximum fuel economy. Set targets suitable for your hull and engine combination and this smart graphical display helps you to stay in the “green zone”, maximising range and keeping fuel costs down.

    Integrate and Expand

    Simrad NSS evo2 displays can be expanded and enhanced to suit boaters’ specific needs, with easy NMEA 2000® and Ethernet connectivity to a vast selection of Simrad and third-party accessories.

    Add StructureScan® 3D imaging to explore underwater terrain and fish-holding structure from an interactive 3D perspective. Gain greater situational awareness with Simrad Broadband 4G™ or Halo™ Pulse Compression radar, get connected with GoFree™ wireless capabilities, or enjoy Bluetooth music streaming from your smartphone or tablet with the SonicHub®2 marine audio system.

    Choose from a wide range of cartography options to best suit your location and usage, with dual chart card slots and support for C-MAP MAX-N+ 2015, Navionics, Insight, Insight Genesis and NV Digital Charts.

    Navionics Autorouting / Jeppesen Easy Routing

    Automatic routing brings the convenience of in-car navigation to boating, giving you the confidence to navigate unfamiliar waters and letting you get underway with less delay.

    Navionics Autorouting and Jeppesen Easy Routing are both fully supported on the NSS16 evo2. Simply select a destination, and the chartplotter will automatically suggest the shortest, safest route taking into consideration the draught and dimensions of your vessel.

    Navionics Autorouting works with Navionics+ or Navionics Platinum charts. Jeppesen Easy Routing requires Jeppesen CMAP MAX-N+ charts.

    Jeppesen C-MAP MAX-N+ 2015 support

    The NSS16 evo2 supports the full range of Jeppesen C-MAP MAX-N+ 2015 charts and features. Find a safe berth with detailed harbour charts; high-definition photos and diagrams of ports and marinas; and C-Marina Port Info including hours of operation, VHF call-in details, and nearby accommodation and restaurants. Navigate easier with comprehensive information on navigational aids, a birds-eye Perspective View, Shaded Depths for enhanced chart visibility, and Dynamic Tides and Currents overlaid on charts in real-time.
