Simrad debuts two new chart plotters

Simrad said it has added the GO12 XSE and GO7 XSR to its GO standalone chart plotter series and both provide radar compatibility.

The GO12 XSE offers a new 12-inch display option for the GO series; the upgraded GO7 XSR features a restyled glass-helm design, along with radar compatibility, which was not previously available on the GO7 XSE.

Fully compatible with Simrad Broadband 3G/4G and Halo Radar systems, the GO12 XSE and GO7 XSR feature internal GPS receivers for the most accurate location; StructureScan HD and CHIRP Sonar for fishfinding; autopilot integration for precision control; engine data monitoring; full audio entertainment connectivity with SonicHub2; built-in wireless connectivity; and the powerful Simrad TripIntelTM trip computer, as well as SiriusXM weather/radio (U.S. only).

“Our continued focus is to increase value for boaters while delivering more enjoyment on the water,” said Navico CEO Leif Ottosson in a statement. “We want to make it easier for boaters to have more fun, and the new GO12 XSE and GO7 XSR standalone chart plotters are the perfect combination of loaded features at an incredible price. The new displays offer boaters better visibility and more useful navigation technology tools than comparable units from other manufacturers. Most of all, they’re incredibly easy to learn and use.”
