The New Simrad NSO EVO3 Navigation System Review

The new NSO evo3 design simplifies installation, while preserving the power and flexibility that make the NSO series the perfect solution for customizing a system for larger cruising and sportfishing vessels. Connect NSO evo3 to Simrad premium network modules and add GPS, autopilot, keypad controllers and other accessories to create the ideal vessel-wide system.

NSO evo3 includes a true, high-definition display (1920 x 1080) that puts users in total control of on-board electronics through an easy-to-use touchscreen interface. The bright, multi-touch display features unbeatable clarity and can be viewed from any angle, even when wearing polarized sunglasses, and supports up to a six-panel, split-screen layout.

The display is powered by a high-performance iMX6 quad-core processor that takes responsiveness to a new level with quicker chart redraws, the fastest updates and instant response to every tap of the touchscreen. NSO evo3 can easily power current Simrad system technology like Halo™ Pulse Compression Radar, the S5100 CHIRP sounder module, ForwardScan™ forward-looking sonar and StructureScan® 3D sonar imaging, with power to spare for any future high-performance innovations.

The NSO evo3 can connect to smartphones, tablets and internet hotspots with integrated wireless connectivity, features advanced networking – including HMDI input/output, OP50 support, plus direct connection and control of audio, autopilot and NMEA 2000® and J1939 engines.
