Announcing the launch of the SIMRAD® GO9 XSE with radar capability

The Simrad® GO9 XSE is the latest addition to the popular GO Series systems. Packed full of features, it has intuitive, multi-touch controls that smartphone and tablet users will instantly find familiar and easy to use. Boaters can view charts, add waypoints and see key information on a large 9-inch screen.

Additionally, the GO9 XSE is fully compatible with Simrad Broadband 3G/4G™ Radar systems and features an internal 10 Hz GPS receiver, StructureScan® HD and CHIRP Sonar for fishfinding, autopilot integration for precision control, engine data monitoring, full audio entertainment connectivity with SonicHub®2, built-in wireless connectivity, and the powerful Simrad TripIntelTM trip computer.

The Cruise Charting page combines crucial navigation data and charts into one easy-to-read display, while new TripIntel technology tracks and displays the key information needed to plan a safe and enjoyable day on the water. Fuel range overlaid on charts, current and future tide levels, and a detailed history of previous trips – including the route taken and how the boat performed – are all provided by TripIntel functionality.

The Simrad GO9 XSE also connects to NMEA 2000® compatible equipment aboard vessels with either outboard or inboard engines to show fuel flow, fluid level, speed, heading and water temperature. A wide range of cartography options are available, including C-MAP®, Navionics® and more.

Anglers can take full advantage of the built-in sonar by simply adding a suitable transducer for accurate, real-time depth tracking and fishfinding. A scrollable depth history view allows boaters to track back and easily set waypoints for promising anchorages. The TotalScan™ all-in-one transducer matches StructureScan® HD Imaging, DownScan Imaging™ and CHIRP sonar for picture-like views of the bottom on each side and beneath the boat as well as providing improved target identification at greater depths, a clearer display with less interference and enhanced target separation. ForwardScan™ sonar technology built into the GO9 XSE (transducer sold separately) also provides forward-looking, two-dimensional sonar views of the bottom depth ahead of a boat – a powerful defense against running aground and an invaluable tool for locating secure sites to drop anchor.

The new Simrad GO9 XSE is available in various configurations ranging from $1,899 AUD RRP/ $2069 NZD RRP without transducer, and up to $2,049 AUD RRP/ $2239 NZD RRP with TotalScan transducer. Consumers can find the new Simrad GO9 XSE products in stores from November 2016
