Product details

Intuitive Touchscreen Chartplotter
The GO series offers true ease of use with intuitive touchscreen controls that smartphone and tablet users will find instantly familiar. Customise your home screen with the features you use most, and see everything you need on screen at once with adjustable split-screen views. Mark waypoints on charts with a touch, and explore a world of navigation options at your fingertips. Every GO series display is a full-featured chartplotter with support for a wide range of cartography options from C-MAP, Navionics, and others.

Ready to Fish with an HDI Skimmer® Transducer
Your GO series display works as a fish finder and depth-tracking echosounder thanks to the included HDI Skimmer® transducer. This transom-mount transducer is easy to install, and offers a cost-effective sonar option for amateur anglers and powerboating enthusiasts alike. CHIRP technology enables clear detection of fish throughout the water column, while DownScan Imaging™ sonar offers a picture-like view of fish-holding structure beneath your boat. FishReveal™ technology combines these two specialised views into a single, crystal clear picture of fish and structure.

Wireless and NMEA 2000® Connectivity
There’s much more to your GO series display than charting. Built-in wireless connectivity offers easy access to free online software upgrades via any Wi-Fi internet hotspot. When you’re out on the water, that same wireless connectivity links your display to your smartphone or tablet, keeping you connected to your equipment from anywhere on board. Industry-standard NMEA 2000® connectivity offers a wide range of expansion options such as engine monitoring, integration with your Simrad autopilot, and control of your on-board entertainment system.

Minimum product requirements
