Simrad Yachting has unveiled the NSO evo3 navigation system, an integrated display for larger cruising and sportfishing boats.

“We are excited to bring new NSO evo3 integrated displays to boaters around the globe, Leif Ottosson, CEO of parent company Navico, said in a statement. “From the new design and the brightest screens to the most powerful processor and advanced networking capabilities, the NSO evo3 is the perfect starting point for customizing a vessel-wide system.”

NSO evo3 has a low-profile glass-bridge design and is available in 16-, 19- and 24-inch displays. It lets users create custom helm layouts and can connect to Simrad premium network modules and add GPS, autopilot, keypad controllers and other accessories to create a vessel-wide system.

The unit includes a high-definition display that puts users in control of on-board electronics through a touchscreen interface. Simrad says the multi-touch display can be viewed at any angle and it supports as much as a six-panel, split-screen layout.

The display is powered by an iMX6 quad-core processor. NSO evo3 can power Simrad systems such as Halo Pulse Compression Radar, an S5100 CHIRP sounder module, ForwardScan forward-looking sonar and StructureScan 3D sonar imaging.

NSO evo3 can connect to smartphones, tablets and Internet hot spots with integrated wireless connectivity, HDMI input and output, OP50 support, direct connection and control of audio, autopilot and NMEA 2000 and J1939 engines.
