Marine electronics and navigation company Simrad Yachting introduced the NSX ULTRAWIDE, said to be the world’s first fully-featured ultrawide marine display. Delivering all the benefits of dual screens in one place, the new NSX ULTRAWIDE is up to 63% wider than the NSX and provides a more streamlined and immersive experience resulting in an elevated dash aesthetic that unlocks new possibilities and a superior charting experience.

“With a show-stopping aesthetic and enhanced functionality, the NSX ULTRAWIDE is setting a new standard in the marketplace, and we are proud to pave the way,” said Kevin Steinbraker, VP and General Manager, Digital Systems of Navico Group. “Whether in their cars, computer monitor at work, or the TVs in their homes, consumers have grown accustomed to and love the benefits of ultrawide screens. Now they can have those same experiences at the helm with immersive graphics and flexible viewing splits. The NSX ULTRAWIDE offers a new perspective on boating that consumers won’t want to go without.”

Available in 12-inch and 15-inch screen sizes, the NSX ULTRAWIDE is a versatile premium solution for a variety of vessel types including surf/wake, pontoons, cruisers, and small to mid-size center consoles, Simrad said. Boaters can upgrade their helm to a simpler and more premium display with an aspect ratio that provides better functionality with perfectly optimized full page applications and application splits, as well as uninterrupted data flows that are easier to digest. Boaters can also create unique dashboards, combining multiple NSX ULTRAWIDE displays to best fit their needs.

The latest C-MAP DISCOVER X charts are optimized specifically for NSX, and the NSX ULTRAWIDE display’s high pixel density shows super–sharp resolution letting users appreciate unprecedented levels of detail. For anglers, extra detail can be added with an upgrade to REVEAL X, featuring shaded relief and satellite imagery.

The X-Gen charts also unlock other new features, such as the new C-MAP Safety Alerts – built to automatically alert users to hazards up ahead, ranging from shallow waters to buoys. Additionally, the C-MAP X-Chart Manager lets users manage C-MAP chart updates and upgrades directly from their device, with the ability to choose custom areas for a near-instant download.  

The 12-inch NSX ULTRAWIDE is priced at $2,749 and the 15-inch is $3,399.
