Simrad announces GO9 XSE with radar capability


SIMRAD’S GO9 XSE is the latest addition to the popular GO Series systems. Packed full of features, it has intuitive, multi-touch controls that smartphone and tablet users will instantly find familiar and easy to use. Boaters can view charts, add waypoints and see key information on a large 9-inch screen.

Additionally, the GO9 XSE is fully compatible with Simrad Broadband 3G/4G Radar systems and features an internal 10Hz GPS receiver, StructureScan HD and Chirp Sonar for fishfinding, autopilot integration for precision control, engine data monitoring, full audio entertainment connectivity with SonicHub 2, built-in wireless connectivity and the Simrad TripIntel trip computer.

The Cruise Charting page combines crucial navigation data and charts into one easy-to-read display, while new TripIntel technology tracks and displays the key information needed to plan a safe and enjoyable day on the water. Fuel range overlaid on charts, current and future tide levels, and a detailed history of previous trips – including the route taken and how the boat performed – are all provided by TripIntel functionality.

The Simrad GO9 XSE also connects to NMEA 2000 compatible equipment aboard vessels with either outboard or inboard engines to show fuel flow, fluid level, speed, heading and water temperature. A wide range of cartography options are available, including C-MAP, Navionics and more.

The new Simrad GO9 XSE is available in various configurations ranging from $1,899 AUD RRP/ $2069 NZD RRP without transducer, and up to $2,049 AUD RRP/ $2239 NZD RRP with TotalScan transducer. Consumers can find the new Simrad GO9 XSE products in stores from November 2016.
