BOATING NEWS: SIMRAD® GO5 & GO7 XSE CHARTPLOTTER NAVIGATION DISPLAYS


Simrad’s GO XSE series delivers powerful, full-featured, standalone marine chartplotter/fishfinders packed into compact, easy-to-use 5 or 7-inch displays. Loaded with today’s latest boating technologies, the GO5 and GO7 XSE feature super-bright multi-touch displays, internal 10 Hz GPS receivers, StructureScan® HD and CHIRP sonar, autopilot integration and control, engine data monitoring, full audio entertainment integration with SonicHub®2, integrated wireless connectivity and the powerful new Simrad TripIntel™ trip computer. GO XSE displays offer intuitive multi-touch controls that smartphone and tablet users will instantly find familiar. Boaters 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 customisable panel layouts with large, clearly-captioned icons that are easy to recognise make the GO XSE series simple-to-use, full-featured chartplotters. Fishermen can take full advantage of the built-in sonar by simply adding a suitable transducer for accurate, real-time depth tracking and fishfinding and the Simrad SonicHub2 marine audio to stream music. For additional flexibility, the GoFree™ Controller App gives fishermen the capability to connect the GO XSE to Android and iOS devices, mirroring the display on smartphones and providing full remote control via iPad.
