Leading marine electronics manufacturer, Simrad Yachting has announced a significant update to its feature-packed, touchscreen chartplotter and multifunction display, the NSS Sport.
The Simrad NSS Sport now offers a free software upgrade, which includes function additions, numerous feature enhancements and a host of performance improvements.
One of the additional functions is the inclusion of StructureMap™ view, an innovative tool that allows users to overlay images from their StructureScan® sonar module onto a chart in real-time or to save images and review at leisure. This new feature allows users to view their surroundings like never before, putting what’s below and around the boat into context for the first time.
StructureMap™ enables boaters to create custom charts of their favourite boating, fishing and diving areas and displays the last few minutes of SideScan imaging as a trail behind the vessel. StructureMap also enables users to scroll back and look at areas to identify key pieces of structure.
Another benefit of the new Simrad NSS software update is the addition of a.pdf viewer, which means users can store and view manuals, images, fishing and weather reports and other .pdf files from micro SD card or onboard memory for quick reference.
Those taking advantage of the free software upgrade will also be able to update their charts online and through installed Freshest Data™ software from Navionics®.
Navionics Freshest Data enables users to choose/select to overlay chart information submitted from end users in any part of the world onto their NSS Sport. Navionics Mobile App users can also upload chart issues to Navionics database in real-time.
With Freshest Data, Simrad NSS Owners can view changes and updates from other Navionics users whenever they sync their SD card with the Free Navionics PC Program.
Leif Ottosson, CEO of Simrad Yachting said: “As a company, we pride ourselves on offering the highest quality products with the best value for money in the market, this latest software update is just one example of our continuing commitment to our customers old and new.”
