Standalone chartplotter range
The Simrad GO12 XSE and GO7 XSR are the newest additions to the top-selling GO standalone chartplotter series suitable for Sub IMO commercial vessels not requiring certified ECDIS systems.
Primarily aimed at the leisure market multi-touch chartplotters are the perfect fit for vessel operators looking for high-quality, all in-one navigation products, that are easy to use and offer more features at an affordable price. The GO12 XSE offers a new, 12-inch display option for the GO Series, while the upgraded GO7 XSR features a restyled, glass-helm design, along with radar compatibility, not previously available on the GO7 XSE.
Featuring super-bright displays and an easy-to-use interface, these new GO Series displays offer powerful functionality and considerable value, claims Simrad. The new displays offer intuitive multi-touch controls that smartphone and tablet users will instantly find familiar. Vessel masters are able to tap the screen to create or select waypoints, pinch-to-zoom, or tap-and-drag to pan smoothly across charts, while simple home screen and menu layouts allow quick access to all functions. Adjustable split-screen views and customizable panel layouts with large, clearly captioned icons that are easy to recognize, make the GO Series simple-to-use, full-featured chartplotters that are intuitive.
Fully compatible with Simrad Broadband 3G/4G™ and Halo Radar systems, the GO12 XSE and GO7 XSR also feature internal GPS receivers for the most accurate location, StructureScan® HD and CHIRP Sonar for excellent fishfinding, autopilot integration for precision control and engine data monitoring,
The Simrad GO12 XSE and GO7 XSR also connect to NMEA 2000® compatible sensors aboard a vessel to display engine data, fuel flow, fluid level, speed, heading and water temperature. A wide range of cartography options are available, including C-MAP®, Navionics® and more.
Leif Ottosson, CEO, Navico said, “The new displays offer boaters better visibility and more useful navigation technology tools than comparable units from other manufacturers. Most of all, they’re incredibly easy to learn and use.”
The GO7, GO9 and GO12 standalone chartplotters now feature an unlockable add-on feature – VelocityTrack for Halo Pulse Compression Radar Systems. Using the Doppler effect, VelocityTrack enables Halo radar to determine whether a target is closing, diverging or stationary relative to the vessel. Closing or approaching targets are automatically highlighted with the option to de-emphasize diverging or retreating targets. A perfect complement to MARPA, VelocityTrack offers an immediate view of all relative target motion, making it easier to pick out relevant targets to track and ignore targets that are not a collision risk.
