Enhance Your Boating Experience with Simrad GO Series Displays and HDI Transducer
Simrad GO series displays offer a range of features that make navigating and fishing on the water easier and more enjoyable. With an intuitive touchscreen interface, customizable home screen, and adjustable split-screen views, the GO series is designed to provide true ease of use. In this article, we’ll explore some of the key features of the Simrad GO series and how they can enhance your boating experience.
Chartplotter Navigation and Waypoint Management
Simrad GO series displays are full-featured chartplotters with support for a wide range of cartography options, including C-MAP, Navionics, C-MAP Genesis, and NV Digital Charts. You can easily mark waypoints with a simple touch and assign meaningful names to make them easy to find on your next trip.
Find Fish with CHIRP and StructureScan® HD Sidescan Imaging
Add an HDI transducer to your GO series display and it works as a powerful fishfinder, complete with CHIRP technology for clear detection of fish throughout the water column. The HDI transducer also offers StructureScan HD sidescan imaging for a picture-like view of fish-holding structure beneath and around your boat.
Expand Your View with a Simrad Radar Solution
The Simrad GO7 XSR is a full-featured radar display with plug-and-play connectivity to Simrad Broadband 3G, Broadband 4G, and Halo Pulse Compression radar systems. This feature allows you to cruise confidently through crowded harbors, navigate safely in poor visibility, keep an eye on distant weather cells, and find flocks of feeding birds that hint at good fishing spots. Automatic tuning provides a clear radar picture in any conditions, while radar overlay combines radar data with navigational charts for an easy-to-interpret view of your surroundings.
Easier Navigation with Automatic Routing
The automatic routing feature brings the convenience of in-car navigation to boating. Simply select a destination, and your display will suggest the shortest, safest route. This feature is available with Navionics+ or Navionics Platinum charts (Navionics Dock-to-dock Autorouting), and C-MAP MAX-N+ charts (C-MAP Easy Routing). Please note that automatic routing features are unavailable in North America.
Navionics SonarChart Live Support
Navionics SonarChart Live allows you to enjoy the most up-to-date charts on the water. This feature is available exclusively with Navionics charts and creates a depth-contour overlay using live sonar data from your display’s built-in sounder. The results are shown on your GO series display and updated in real-time as you fish or cruise.
Cruise Charting View
The Simrad GO series offers a unique Cruise Charting page designed with power boating in mind. It brings together crucial navigation data and charts in one easily readable display.
Simrad SonicHub2 Compatible
The optional SonicHub2 module is the perfect companion to your GO series display. This black-box audio system eliminates the need for a separate head unit and allows you to stream music from Bluetooth-connected tablets, smartphones, and other mobile devices.
Built-in Wireless Connectivity
The Simrad GO series provides access to online services, including easy wireless map downloads and software updates via any wireless hotspot. On the water, you can connect your Simrad GO series display to your mobile devices, mirroring your display’s screen on your smartphone or giving you full remote control from your tablet with the free Link app.
