The NSS9 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 NSS9 evo2’s widescreen 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.
The NSS9 evo2’s integrated SonarHub™ sounder combines award-winning StructureScan® HD sonar imaging, for a 180-degree picture-like view of the bottom, with CHIRP-enabled Broadband Sounder™ technology, for reliable fish detection and accurate bottom tracking at all depths.
The NSS9 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 NSS9 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.
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.
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. For more than two displays, additional NSS evo2 displays or NSO evo2 processors are required.
