New Simrad NSO evo3 product line


Simrad recently announced the new NSO evo3 plotter series to compete with the Garmin big boys – The Garmin GPSMAP 8400/8600 series.

The NSO evo3 series is no longer black box based – but rather full display and processor unit in one. Powered by iMX6 quad-core processor with “Plenty of power to spare” as Simrad writes in their press release.

The NSO evo3 is compatible with all the new premium modules from Simrad. The NSO evo3’s are available in 3 different screens sizes – 16″, 19″ & 24″ – where the Garmin GPSMAP 8400/8600 is available in 17″, 22″ and 24″. Resolution seems to be “constant” at 1920×1080 across the range where Garmin is 1920×1200 across the range. The screen is also supposed to be Polarised sunglass friendly.

There is integrated wireless support, HDMI input/output and direct connection and control of auto pilots, audio, NMEA 2000 and J1939 engine systems. It supports the new-ish S5100 CHIRP sounder module, ForwardsScan & StructureScan 3D.

You can get the NSO evo3 in either kit form with accessories like card reader or I guess as barebones displays. Simrad NSO evo3 is available from authorised Simrad Yachting dealers and distributors.

Prices start at $6995 for bare-bones unit or $7699 for a kit with accessories.
