Default Simrad NSS Evo 2 has BSM-2 CHIRP Integrated In?

This is a portion of a press release from West Marine on 2-10-2014 that claims the NSS Evo 2 has the BSM-2 CHIRP integrated in. I sure hope that's the case?

"Media Contacts: Laurie Fried West Marine 831.761.6944 Watsonville, CA (February 10, 2014) West Marine (Nasdaq:WMAR), the largest specialty Waterlife Outfitter of quality marine grade products, apparel, footwear and accessories, selected the Simrad NSS9 evo2 combos and chartplotters as Top Picks for 2014. The NSS evo2 combines form, fit and function in an easy-to-use, multifunction device. The integrated NSS evo2 MFD features a sleek display with TouchSensibleTM multi-touch interaction. TouchSensible provides precision interaction in any sea condition with its logical keypad input and rotary, push-to-enter knob. Plus, Simradís GoFree WiFi option allows viewing and control from compatible smart phones. For serious anglers, the NSS evo2 features built-in fishfinding technologies, including BSM-1 Broadband Sounder, BSM-2 CHIRP sounder and StructureScanģ HD (down and side scanning). Simradís NSS evo2 comes in four screen sizes, including 7-. 9-, 12- and 16-inch models.?

I would think for the price its the mini chirp built in as opposed to the BSM2 but if thats true its a heck of a deal

It is no question the SonarHub. That is just marketing material gone wrong.

I've answered exactly this question in another thread, but I can repeat it here.


NSS Evo2 does not have BSM-2 built in, it has an integrated SonarHub. SonarHub has the functionality of StructureScan HD, BSM-1 and a one channel CHIRP. BSM-2 is a 2-channel high performance CHIRP sounder. The CHIRP sounder in NSS Evo2 is expected to be comparable with the one integrated in Garmin 547xs, 741xs, 840xs and 1040xs.

I talked to Lori, the press representative of Simrad she also told me that was an error.
They also changed the bsm2 picture that was misplaced on the sonarhub page, into the right picture within an hour after I mentioned it to her

Good morning Hendrik,
Many thanks for getting in touch - you are correct, the technology is essentially SonarHub with an additional BSM-1, rather than each individual element.

Kindest,

Lori

Default Simrad NSS Evo 2 News?

I thought Simrad was going to highlight the NSS Evo 2 line at the Miami boat show with much more detail on the units and release dates. I was thinking about purchasing one but I'm getting really tired of the lack of any news. How hard is it to provide monthly updates on development or production? What about some detailed specifications??? I guess they don't need my money that bad. banghead:

They have release date months on their website. All the specs are known as far as I know.

Below is a transom picture of the type of boat I have.

I have a Hewes craft similar to yours. You can relocate the anodes on the tabs and install the transom mt ducer in its place. I have a P66 on the right side and a TM258 on the left.
I also have a 8hp Yamaha with the Garmin TR1 auto pilot. I'm in Coeur D' Alene so call me if you have questions. I also built aluminum rails and down rigger mounts to keep from going over the side when fishing in the sound.
The chirp sounds pretty neat but over my budget

Default Thanks

I appreciate the advise and willingness to help out! I want to replace my Garmin 740s with a better fish finder, however I am far from decided on which is the best way to go. The more I think about it, the less I like the idea of spending over 3K to upgrade. I will keep studying and saving my penny's
