The most important thing is not listed, does it do dual range radar?

I'm a bit confused by this image showing two radar images, but the range is the same.

Thank you, Abbor!

The NSS evo2 units look very smart. All new HEROiC Software sounds interesting too. Hope to find the physical dimensions soon and will be modifying my dash again.

The physical dimensions are on the Simrad site. NSS9 has the same resolution as the 7. A lot of money for bigger pixels.

Thank you. Found the dimensions of the 7" and 9" now.
It looks like they use the screens from the Lowrance Touch line.

The new 7 and 9" models will be available in Europe in December, the two larger models in March. Based on information in a Swedish boating magazine the recommended prices seems to be similar to the NSS pricing from last year (Or the current recommended HDS Touch pricing).

That is quite odd and doesnt make sense. Right up Navico's alley.


As for the CHIRP, I assume it is the single band CHIRP that is in the SonarHub?

The screen resolution of the 7 and 9" models is the same as for all other widescreen 7 and 9" models .

The sonar technology built into the units is exactly as in Sonar Hub.

Just read an interview with the managing director of the Norwegian Navico distributor.

According to him the original NSS will not be obsoleted by the introduction of Evo2, they will continue producing also the older versions, but the prices for these models will be reduced.

I can't seem to find the actual screen size for the new Evo2 units versus the existing NSS units?
Thanks,
Pete

Evo2 7, 9 and 12 are 7, 9 and 12.1". NSS16 is most probably 15.6". The new MO16-T Monitor for NSO is 15.6", it's probably the same or a variant.

there is a drop down spec bar on the simrad website for each of the new nss units.

Say an NSS evo2 12", that has the build in sonarhub, is networked with an NSS evo2 9" m, without the sonarhub. The 12" is also hooked up to a 4G radar and an AP24 autopilot.
I assume that the 9"m" can display sonar, radar, and autopilot data from the 12"....Right?

Yes, the non sonar version of NSS Evo2 can display the sonar data from the embedded sonar modules in other NSS units (new or old NSS). You write the 12" is hooked up for 4G and AP24. Both the 12" and the 9" will have to be connected together and to the radar and autopilot using both Ethernet and NMEA 2000, then of course both can display radar and control the autopilot. The two units can also share chart data stored on a micro SD (but not embedded charts).

Thanks abbor

Just to clarify, don't want to derail the thread, is a separate ethernet hub required for the setup I mentioned, or does the 12" have enough ports to hook up radar (1 port) and the 9" (2nd port)? Of course a NMEA 2000 network is also required for both MFDs.
