Simrad software enhanced

Simrad has introduced a host of software enhancements for its innovative NSE system.

Building on the Simrad NSE’s combination of advanced radar, chartplotter and sonar technology, the new NSE 2.0 software puts users in complete control of a range of integrated functions, making it possible to control and monitor almost every system on the boat through a single user-friendly interface.

Simrad says taking control of autopilot functions is easier than ever with the NSE 2.0 software combining the autopilot system with brilliant NSE displays, allowing users to combine charting, autopilot and vessel pages for unprecedented vessel control. Additional screens can be simply added where needed.

The new software also integrates NSE with Navico’s impressive new StructureScan sonar imaging technology to deliver life-like imaging of underwater structures. StructureScan incorporates SideScan and DownScan imagery to add a new dimension to fishfinding, clearly separating fish from structure.

Using innovative Czone digital switching technology, it is also now possible to control and monitor almost any system on the boat from an NSE display. Lights, bilge pumps and tank levels are among the functions that can be operated, monitored and adjusted at the touch of a button. The ability to monitor and adjust fuel and power settings from the NSE unit allows users to moderate energy consumption and reduces the overall running costs.

The Simrad NSE series of multifunction displays is compatible with the award-winning BR24 Broadband Radar, the HD Digital Radar, the BSM-1 Broadband Sonar Module and the GS15 High-Speed 5Hz GPS antenna.

These software enhancements will be available in May for download from or by contacting your authorised Simrad dealer.
