From sailing to cruising to fishing, Simrad’s new large display NSO Offshore navigation system is worth reviewing
From sailing to cruising to fishing, Simrad’s new large display NSO Offshore navigation system leverages the complete line-up of Simrad performance modules for overall best-in-class performance.
Based on the highly-acclaimed Simrad NSE platform – and available with sleek and stylish 25.4cm (10”), 38.1cm (15”) and 48.3cm (19”) displays – the new NSO Offshore system borrows a proven software feature set with unique integration and control capabilities.
Professional level performance is assured with a reliable and rugged NSO Marine Processor, while the all-new OP40 remote keypad delivers ‘NSE style’ control for up to four networked systems when used in multi-display helms. The NSO Marine Processor has dual DVI video output for easy installation of a remote, repeated display, and the system networks seamlessly with the NSE8 and NSE12 for additional upgrade and layout options.
A simple rotary controller, dedicated chart, sonar and radar keys, and an alphanumeric keypad deliver professional level performance in an easy-to-use package. Ease of control is assured in all system functions – as a chartplotter, autopilot, Broadband Radar, Simrad HD Digital Radar, or as a fishing system with the powerful Broadband Sounder module and unique StructureScan module.
The NSO Offshore is compatible with the Simrad SonicHub multi-zone audio system and CZone digital switching technology to offer complete vessel integration. Chartplotter, iPod and navigation lights can all be controlled from the primary NSO display.
Simrad’s NSO Offshore system will be available in Australia in early 2011. RRP is around AU$9199 for the NSO15 kit.
