Like the original NSS Evo3, the unit will have built in Wi-Fi connectivity to connect to external devices like an Ipad.
CHARTING: One big change from the Evo3 to the Evo3S series is the pre-loaded mapping. All new and improved CMAP charts will include high-resolution bathymetry with 1 foot contours for inland and coastal mapping, easy routing capability and C-MAp Reveal embedded for Florida. The units are still compatible with a wide range of maps including Insight, Navionics (Gold, Nav+, Platinum+), C-MAP (Max N, Max N+, Reveal), and CMOR.
SONAR: The units are equipped with high performance echosounder with 1kW CHIRP-enabled sonar supported with SideScan and DownScan Imaging boosted by the Active Imaging transducer for picture like views of structure and clear views of the bottom. There are two 9 pin Xsonic sonar ports on each unit. Sonar Port 1 supports single channel CHIRP, 50/200 khz, HDI. Sonar Port 2 supports single channel CHIRP, 50/200 khz, Totalscan, Active Imaging, LSS HD and Forwardscan technology.
Additional Compatible Sonar Modules: SonarHub, BSM-3, BSM-2 and for deep water, try out the S5100 Sonar.
AUTOPILOTS: Simrad autopilots will interface directly to the EVO3s series. You can choose to run the pilot directly through the MFD or get an autopilot controller for dual control. Using a Simrad autopilot and EVO3s you will have full routing capabilities using the touchscreen to plan out courses and routes. Check out Simrad autopilots here.
RADAR: All of Simrads digital radars will network easily with the EVO3s. Simrad has multiple options available including closed dome, open array and new doppler technology availble. The most popular choice is the Halo 20+ radar. View all Simrad compatible radars here.
