A new generation of    functionality and ease of use for offshore    performance  Egersund, Norway – The evolution of the Simrad brand built into  one multifunction display and then taken to    the extremes to satisfy    the    world’s    most demanding sportfishing  enthusiasts  – this is the Simrad NSS evo3. Announced today,    the    evo3 series    is the realization of the future of fishing, the connected vessel and boating electronics. The combined styling, technology  and performance of the units push new boundaries.

Navigate, take control and enjoy an unprecedented level of built-in functionality with NSS evo3. Advanced SolarMAX HD screens, dual    channel CHIRP, glass-helm design and refined user interface, plus za a host of premium features and direct connections will make the NSS evo3 series the new choice of power boaters and sport fishermen around the globe.

The    NSS    evo3 series includes 16-, 12-, 9- and 7-inch models with an updated, easyto-use interface with Touch Sensible touchscreen, keypad and rotary-control knob, making the units easier to operate when the boat is in motion, in all weather conditions giving    the    boater absolute    control. The interface is precise and reliable and    includes expanded scrolling functionality for quicker access to    networked technologies; restyled Exit, Power and MOB buttons that are moved to the corners of the keypad for easier    access in darkness; new  menu button and cursor-scrolling keypad  grouping for easy and fast operation when users    lock-out the touchscreen; and a  new programmable WheelKey button that can be customized to    serve    a variety of personalized functions or direct  autopilot control.

Designed for the offshore fishermen that demand  the perfect sportfishing sonar, dual channel CHIRP enables wide angle and deep view sonar images from   the same transducer (with a  dual channel CHIRP sonar transducer installed on the boat), or from multiple installed transducers. The NSS evo3 built-in CHIRP sonar    is the    evolution of practicality, purpose-built to equip charter captains and tournament anglers with unprecedented views of both low and high    CHIRP channels at the same time. With the    NSS    evo3, captains can    cover more water and mark fish targets more clearly with Network Dual Sounder technology, which provides sonar    data from a    network    of CHIRP transducers across  all  helm stations – with the ability to    display multiple sonar    inputs simultaneously.
