Simrad NSS Evo2 Touchscreen

The NSS evo2 Series is engineered for performance, functionality and flexible control. Its TouchSensible interface provides multi-touch interaction for ease of use when cruising, as well as a keypad and a rotary push-to-enter dial for quick and effective use on those days when waves and boat movement make it hard to use a touchscreen accurately.

Available in 7 inch, 9 inch, 12 inch and 16 inch sized displays.


  • Embedded high-gain 10Hz GPS/GLONASS receiver, works in flush installations with most non-metal boats
  • Built-in CHIRP-enabled broadband sounder and StructureScan
  • TouchSensible combination of multi-touch screen and keypad/rotary dial for intuitive and precise control in all conditions
  • HEROiC software optimized for widescreen multi-touch display, with customisable panels
  • Full autopilot integration capability
  • Simrad GoFree WiFi connectivity for smartphones/tablets (requires optional WiFi module)
  • Flush-mount (~8mm profile) or bracket installation, with classic black and brushed silver bezel options
  • HDMI Output on NSS12 evo2 and NSS16 evo2

Software Optimisation

Simrad Yachting’s HEROiC software has been optimised for the NSS evo2’s widescreen display and multi-touch interface, making use of common gestures that smartphone and tablet users will find familiar.

A new Nav page puts key navigational information together in one place, and customisable favourites allow quick access to the functions you use most.

Integrated Sonar Hub

SonarHub is integrated in the NSS evo2 and combines award-winning StructureScan Sonar, Broadband Sounder and CHIRP technology to give anglers the ability to view fish and structure in both 3D imaging and high-definition sonar.

Autopilot Control

The NSS evo2 provides full autopilot integration for control from its TouchSensible display, and the embedded high-gain 10Hz GPS/GLONASS receiver provides precise location information without external hardware on most fibreglass boats.

Elegant and Practical Design

Engineered for form and function, the NSS9 evo2 enhances the helm of any vessel. Its flush-mount design provides a professional, low profile look that is complemented by classic black or brushed silver trim panels – both included with every system.

Bridge Control

Easily manage multiple displays across a helm station with Bridge Control. Link up to four displays as a ‘bridge’, then create your own bridge presets for activities such as docking, navigation, fishing, or diving. Bridge presets control what appears on each display, and let you configure an entire helm station with just one simple action.

Bridge Control effortlessly extends to vessels with dual helms or multiple stations, with the ability to define up to four separate bridges. Each bridge has its own displays and presets: set up the cockpit with echosounder and StructureScan displays for fishing, while dedicating your flybridge displays to navigation and autopilot. Adapt your configuration as your needs or equipment change, with the ability to create, edit, and delete bridges and presets on the fly.

Bridge Control works with any of the Simrad NSS evo2 multifunction displays, and NSO evo2 modular performance navigation systems. For more than two displays, additional NSS evo2 displays or NSO evo2 processors are required.

Integrate and Expand

The Simrad evo2 can be expanded and enhanced to suit boaters’ specific needs, with Simrad Yachting and Simrad Professional Series performance modules.

Add 4G broadband radar, StructureScan HD, GoFree WiFi for tablet and smartphone control of your NSS evo2, SonicHub marine audio with iPod/iPhone dock, and more.

Flexible Charting

With dual chart card slots built in, you’re free to choose from a wide range of cartography options to best suit your location and usage. The NSS9 evo2 has support for C-MAP MAX-N, Navionics, Insight, Insight Genesis and NV Digital Charts.

Navionics Autorouting / Jeppesen Easy Routing

Automatic routing brings the convenience of in-car navigation to boating, giving you the confidence to navigate unfamiliar waters and letting you get underway with less delay.

Navionics Autorouting and Jeppesen Easy Routing are both fully supported on the NSS9 evo2. Simply select a destination, and the chartplotter will automatically suggest the shortest, safest route taking into consideration the draught and dimensions of your vessel.
Navionics Autorouting works with Navionics+ or Navionics Platinum charts. Jeppesen Easy Routing requires Jeppesen CMAP MAX-N+ charts.

Jeppesen Tides and Currents

Navigate, fish, and plan your trips easier with support for Jeppesen’s global Tides and Currents. When used with Jeppesen CMAP MAX-N charts, the NSS evo2 can display predicted tides and currents for a location in real-time, or make tide and current projections for a future trip.

Zoom in to see dynamic current data directly incorporated into your navigational charts, with animated icons to indicate speed and direction.

Simrad GoFree WiFi Connectivity

Never leave your station unattended, wherever you’re needed on board. Mirror the screen of your NS7 evo2 on your Apple or Android tablet or smartphone, in real time, with the optional Simrad GoFree WiFi module.

Many functions can also be controlled remotely – mark waypoints, change echosounder settings, set radar guard zones, manage onboard entertainment, and more.
