Reliable Control in All Conditions
NSS evo3 displays let you take control your way. Switch seamlessly between intuitive touchscreen control with multi-touch gestures, and a full built-in keypad with rotary control dial. Every display function can be controlled by either the touchscreen or the keypad, giving you the flexibility to use whatever controls best suit current conditions and the task at hand. NSS evo3’s full keypad controls also mean you can choose to lock the touchscreen and rely on a classic button and rotary dial interface, without requiring a separate keypad.
A built-in echosounder module equips every NSS evo3 display with a wealth of Simrad sonar technologies to suit many sportfishing and cruising applications. StructureScan® HD imaging combines DownScan and SideScan sonar to provide a picture-like views of fish holding structure, while award-winning ForwardScan® sonar offers a safer cruising experience with a clear view of the bottom ahead. Broadband Sounder™ technology provides CHIRP-enabled fish-finding sonar, including support for the all-in-one TotalScan™ transducer or dual-channel CHIRP transducers. Dual-channel transducers provide coverage of multiple depth ranges and cone angles in a single unit, perfect for targeting specific parts of the water column in sportfishing applications. Dual transducer ports allow simultaneous use of either StructureScan® HD or ForwardScan® and CHIRP or traditional sonar.
Compatible with Simrad Expansion Modules
NSS evo3 displays are compatible with Simrad expansion modules including game-changing StructureScan® 3D imaging, advanced sounder module with CHIRP technology, and many other plug-and-play network modules. Module capabilities can be shared between multiple NSS evo3 displays, and sonar data from multiple sources can be viewed simultaneously on a single NSS evo3 display in a customisable split-screen configuration. The ability to add modules at any time means your Simrad display system can easily grow and change along with your boating interests and technology needs.
Radar System Control
Expand your view with Halo™ Pulse Compression radar, Broadband Radar™, or HD Digital Radar solutions. NSS evo3 displays integrate with these network-connected Simrad radar solutions to provide a full-featured radar interface complete with easy pre-set modes, custom manual tuning, MARPA target tracking, guard zones, overlay views, and many other features depending on your choice of radar system.
Simrad Autopilot Integration
Take complete control of your Simrad autopilot with the NSS evo3 touchscreen or keypad. Set a heading, maintain your current course against wind and tide, steer to a waypoint, or follow a complex route with simple on-screen controls. NSS evo3 displays can serve as the sole controller for a ‘black box’ autopilot system, or can be combined with dedicated autopilot controllers and wireless remotes. A networked Simrad autopilot system can be controlled from any NSS evo3 display on board, perfect for dual-helm vessels.
NMEA 2000® Connectivity
Industry-standard NMEA 2000® connectivity enables vessel-wide integration with a range of Simrad and third-party electronics including engine and fuel monitoring capabilities, digital instrumentation, AIS integration, sound system control, and much more.
Built-in 10 Hz GPS Receiver
All NSS evo3 displays include an integrated high-gain, high-speed GPS/GLONASS receiver that updates your position ten times per second, ideal for accurately tracking the motion of fast-moving powerboats. In outside bracket-mount installations, and in flush-mount installations in many fibreglass boats, this removes the need to purchase and install a separate GPS receiver. An optional external GPS receiver may be used as an auxiliary position source, or in certain installations that prevent a clear GPS signal from reaching the integrated receiver.
Customisable Function Key
The NSS evo3 includes a user-programmable function key to provide instant access to your choice of features. Enjoy one-button access to the feature you use most – such as navigation, autopilot, or radar. Alternatively, assign the button to a feature you’d like to keep close to hand – create a MOB key for emergencies, a dedicated key to record sonar logs for Insight Genesis, or a key to lock the touchscreen while you’re using the keypad or an external controller. You can choose any two functions – one for a quick press, and one for a long press.
Designed for power boaters, TripIntel™ technology tracks and displays the key information you need to plan safe and enjoyable days on the water. Make smart decisions with fuel range overlaid on charts, easy access to current and future tide levels, and a detailed history of your previous trips. While underway, the Cruise Performance Indicator makes it easy to tune trim and throttle to achieve maximum fuel economy and stay in the ‘green zone’, maximising range and keeping fuel costs down.
Easier Navigation with Automatic Routing
Automatic routing brings the convenience of in-car navigation to boating, helping you to plot a route and get underway with less delay. Simply select a destination, and the NSS evo3 display will suggest the shortest, safest route taking into consideration the draught and dimensions of your vessel. This feature is available with Navionics+ or Navionics Platinum charts (Navionics Dock-to-dock Autorouting), and with C-MAP MAX-N+ charts (Easy Routing).
* Automatic routing features are unavailable in North America.
Navionics® SonarChart™ Live support
Enjoy the most up-to-date charts on the water with Navionics SonarChart Live. Available with Navionics charts, this feature creates a depth-contour overlay using live sonar data from your display’s built-in sounder or a network sounder module. The results are shown on your NSS evo3 display and updated in real-time as you fish or cruise.
Built-in GoFree™ Wi-Fi
Built-in GoFree™ Wi-Fi enables online chart downloads, Insight Genesis map creation, and easy system-wide software updates. Browse and purchase a wide range of cartography online from the GoFree™ Shop, and download charts directly to your display’s memory card without leaving the helm. Upload sonar logs recorded on your display directly to the Insight Genesis cloud service to create detailed custom charts, a perfect way to explore your favourite inland and coastal fishing spots. GoFree™ online services can be used anywhere a Wi-Fi internet connection is available. GoFree™ Wi-Fi also enables Navionics Plotter Sync waypoint synchronisation, available with a compatible Navionics chart card and update subscription.
Smartphone & Tablet Integration with GoFree™ Link
Out on the water, GoFree™ Wi-Fi and the free GoFree™ Link app lets you view your NSS evo3 display using an Apple iPhone or Android smartphone, and control your display from an Apple iPad or Android tablet. Take your display anywhere on board for access to charts, radar, sonar, engine data, and more – exactly where and when you need it.
Multiple Mounting Options
NSS evo3 displays can be bracket mounted for easy installation almost anywhere, or flush mounted for a fully integrated Glass Bridge look and feel. These displays have a low flush-mount profile of just eight millimetres, and feature the same sleek contemporary styling as other Simrad Glass Bridge products including multifunction displays, radar control units, fish finders, autopilot controllers, instruments, and keypads.
Widest Available Cartography Support
Choose from a wide range of cartography options to best suit your location and usage with support for C-MAP MAX-N+, Navionics, Insight, Insight Genesis, and NV Digital Charts.
