The NSO evo2 navigation system is Simrad's flgship modular navigation system that is fully configurable to meet any captain's requirements. Designed as a single processor black box, you can build a system to meet the specific needs of your vessel. Start with the MPU, add TouchSensibleTM widescreen monitors, and then combine any number of award winning plug-and -play Simrad perfomance modules to build the ultimate customized solution
Simrad engineers have leveraged years of experience building integrated computer systems for boats to deliver the intelligently enfineered brains and brawn of this flagship system. Dual quad-core processors drive the independent video output and also maintain the lightning-fast chart redraw Simrad is known for. We've included a full-size SD Card slot for cartography or critical navigation data backup, and standard Ethernet and USB Ports eliminate cable complexity. This fully networked, modular glass-bridge navigation system can be integrated wirth any of the wide range of Simard Perfomance Modules.
Easily integrated with Simrad performance modules and third-party accessories, the NSO evo2 provides lightning-fast control of sonar, charting, radar, autopilot, SonicHub onboard entertainment, and much more.

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 the NSO evo2, and any of the Simrad NSS evo2 multifunction displays. For more than two displays, additional NSO evo2 or NSS evo2 units are required.
Integrate and Expand
The Simrad NSO evo2 can be expanded and enhanced to suit boaters’ specific needs, with the full range of Simrad Yachting and Simrad Professional Series performance modules.
Add 4G broadband radar, BSM-3 broadband echosounder with CHIRP, StructureScan HD, GoFree™ wireless connectivity, SonicHub marine audio with iPod/iPhone dock, and more. All modules are backed by Simrad Yachting’s knowledgeable field and factory support.
NSO evo2 integration can be extended for complete vessel control with digital switching, night-vision camera control (FLIR™), or HDMI video output to a TV in the salon.
Cartography options include Jeppesen C-MAP MAX-N, Navionics Gold and Platinum, Insight, Lake Insight, Nautic Insight, Insight Genesis, and NV digital charts.
Available with the optional WIFI-1 module, GoFree™ wireless capabilities connect your NSO evo2 glass bridge system to the world. Browse and purchase a wide range of cartography online from the GoFree™ Shop, downloading charts directly to your display’s memory card without leaving the helm. Upload sonar logs recorded during your voyages directly from your display to the Insight Genesis cloud service, which creates detailed depth-contour, vegetation location, and bottom hardness maps – the perfect way to better explore your favourite inland and coastal fishing spots.
Anywhere you have a wireless internet connection, you have access to GoFree™ services – from your marina’s Wi-Fi, to any harbour, coastal or inland waters with mobile service if you have a smartphone and mobile plan that support ‘tethering’ or ‘internet sharing’ (data charges may apply).
Out on the water, GoFree™ brings any display from your NSO system right to your iPhone or Android smartphone, and lets you control displays remotely from your iPad or Android tablet.
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 NSO 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.
* Automatic routing features are unavailable in North America.
Jeppesen C-MAP MAX-N+ 2015 support
The NSO evo2 supports the full range of Jeppesen C-MAP MAX-N+ 2015 charts and features. Find a safe berth with detailed harbour charts; high-definition photos and diagrams of ports and marinas; and C-Marina Port Info including hours of operation, VHF call-in details, and nearby accommodation and restaurants. Navigate easier with comprehensive information on navigational aids, a birds-eye Perspective View, Shaded Depths for enhanced chart visibility, and Dynamic Tides and Currents overlaid on charts in real-time.
Command and Control
The NSO evo2’s HEROiC user interface has been optimized for widescreen monitors, and includes multi-touch gesture support.
TouchSensible lets you command the NSO evo2 with a Simrad MO-series touchscreen monitor, or a traditional OP40 keypad and rotary dial. Combine the convenience of a touchscreen with classic controls that respond to wet or gloved hands, and offer precision on those days where boat motion makes it hard to use a touchscreen accurately.
Ideal for pilothouse use, add desktop-style controls for route planning and other detail-oriented tasks with USB mouse, trackball and keyboard support.
The NSO evo2 is optimized for use with Simrad MO Series multi-touch, widescreen marine monitors. Available in three screen sizes, 16-inch, 19-inch, and 24-inch, the Simrad MO-T Series features sleek, glass-bridge styling, front-mounting for ease of installation, and a familiar "Home" key that eliminates guesswork when operating the system. Whether you view the NSO evo2 on Simrad Monitors, on your tablet, or on compatible third party monitors, you'll be amazed at what this system will do.
