Chartplotter Navigation & Waypoint Management
The GO9 XSE is a full-featured chartplotter, with support for the widest available range of cartography options including C-MAP® MAX-N, Navionics®, Insight®, Insight Genesis®, and NV Digital® Charts. Navigate confidently to destinations near and far, with the flexibility to choose charts that best fit your needs and location. Set and record those destinations easily with simple waypoint mangement: mark waypoints with a touch, and assign meaningful names that make it easy to look up your desired destination whether youve mapped out ten places or a thousand.

Expand Your View with a Simrad Radar Solution
The Simrad GO9 XSE is a full-featured radar display with plug-and-play connectivity to Simrad Broadband 3G, Broadband 4G, and Halo Pulse Compression radar systems. Cruise confidently through crowded harbours, navigate safely in poor visibility, keep an eye on distant weather cells, and find flocks of feeding birds that hint at good fishing spots. Automatic tuning helps to provide a clear radar picture in any conditions, while radar overlay combines radar data with navigational charts for an easy-to-interpret view of your surroundings.

Fully Customisable Interface
The Simrad GO9 XSE is fully customisable to suit your vessel and your favourite on-water activities from power boating, to fishing, to water sports. Customise your home screen with shortcuts to the features you use most, and personalise it with your choice of wallpaper. Adjustable split-screen views and customisable panel layouts let you see everything you need on-screen at once, whatever your activity.

Plan Smarter with TripIntel™ Technology
Designed for power boaters, TripIntel technology tracks and displays the key information you need to plan safe and enjoyable days on the water. Make smart decisions with fuel range overlaid on charts, easy access to current and future tide levels, and a detailed history of your previous trips including the route you took and how your boat performed.

Easier Navigation with Automatic Routing Automatic routing brings the convenience of in-car navigation to boating, helping you to plot a route and get underway with less delay. Simply select a destination, and your GO XSE display will suggest the shortest, safest route taking into consideration the draught and dimensions of your vessel. This feature is available with Navionics+ or Navionics Platinum charts (Navionics Autorouting), and with Jeppesen CMAP MAX-N+ charts (Jeppesen Easy Routing).

Built-in 10 Hz GPS receiver*
With a high-speed GPS receiver updating your position ten times every second, the Simrad GO9 XSE is ideal for use aboard fast-moving RIBs and powerboats. Watch your boat's movement tracked smoothly, accurately, and in real-time, without 'jumping' from point to point on the display.

Cruise Charting View
Designed with power boating in mind, the Simrad GO9 XSE offers a unique Cruise Charting page that brings together crucial navigation data and charts in one easily readable display. Choose the information most relevant to your crusing style and on-water activities with the ability to edit on-screen data items.

NMEA 2000® Engine Monitoring & Instrumentation
The Simrad GO9 XSE connects to any NMEA 2000®-capable equipment aboard your vessel including outboard and inboard engines; fuel level and flow meters; speed, heading, and water temperature sensors; and much more. Create your own custom digital instrument displays, bringing a wealth of information to even the most crowded dash while keeping a clean look with as few gauges as possible.

Watch Your Depth with Built-in Sonar
Knowing the true depth beneath your hull can help you enjoy your time on the water with fewer worries, and makes it easier to locate suitable anchorages in unfamiliar waters. With built-in sonar, just add a suitable sonar transducer for accurate, real-time depth tracking. A scrollable depth history view lets you track back and easily set waypoints for promising anchorages, while StructureScan Imaging combines DownScan and SideScan sonar to offer a picture-like view of the bottom beneath your vessel.

Cruise Confidently with ForwardScan Sonar
Using an optional ForwardScan transducer, this forward-looking sonar technology provides a clear two-dimensional image of the bottom in front of your vessel, allowing you to navigate shallow or poorly-charted waters with confidence. With real-time updates and a forward-looking view of up to eight times your current depth, ForwardScan lets you relax and enjoy a safer day on the water.

Find fish with CHIRP & StructureScan® HD sidescan imaging
Whether fishing is your life or just a casual hobby, any fishing trip will benefit from the extensive array of built-in sonar technology on the Simrad GO9 XSE. Add a suitable transducer, available separately or bundled with your display, and the GO9 XSE works as a powerful fishfinder with CHIRP-enabled broadband sonar for clear detection of fish throughout the water column. With an optional HDI or TotalScan transducer, the GO9 XSE also offers StructureScan HD sidescan imaging for a picture-like view of fish-holding structure beneath and around your boat.

Simrad SonicHub®2 & Bluetooth® Audio Integration
If you're not at home on the water without a good soundtrack, the Simrad SonicHub®2 marine audio system is the perfect companion to a GO9 XSE display. Stream music from Bluetooth® connected tablets, smartphones, and other mobile devices, play MP3 files from a USB flash drive, or listen to the SonicHub 2's built-in AM/FM radio. SonicHub 2 brings complete control of your audio entertainment to your GO9 XSE display, eliminating the need for a separate stereo head-unit and letting you listen to your music, your way.

GoFree™ cloud enabled with Built-in Wi-Fi
With Wi-Fi built in, the Simrad GO9 XSE provides direct access to GoFree cloud services including easy wireless map downloads, software updates, and more. Whether hooked up to your home Wi-Fi with your boat trailered in the driveway, logged in to your marina's Wi-Fi, or tethered to your smartphone out on the lake, you can access GoFree cloud services anywhere you have an internet connection. On the water, GoFree connects the Simrad GO9 XSE to your mobile devices, mirroring your display's screen on your smartphone or giving you full remote control from your tablet with the free GoFree Controller app.

SiriusXM Weather Integration
The Simrad GO9 XSE is the only GO Series display compatible with SiriusXM Marine satellite weather, via the optional WM-3 expansion module, for real-time access to weather information right on your display. With onboard access to weather radar, surface buoy reports, NOAA Marine Zone forecasts and more, you can check out the conditions offshore before you even leave the dock. SiriusXM Marine is a subscription service, exclusively available within North America.

* Built-in GPS receiver works in any bracket-mount installation, and when flush-mounted with most fibreglass hulls. When flush-mounted in a metal hulled vessel, an external GPS receiver such as the Simrad GS25 may be required.

One source suggests that the GO9 XSE is an exclusive for West Marine. What's the real story on that?

Interesting!

What are the differences between the GO7 & GO9 and the GO9 & NSS EVO2?

I notice that you can get the 9 with radar? Is it still limited to just one transducer -- total scan OR forward scan?

I was originally going to get the 7 since I have a bimini and no radar arch. I'd love to have radar, but it looks like a lot of work on a boat like mine.

Now the lines are blurring a bit..

It's is the only Go series that allows integration of the Sirius XM weather. You can use other ducers. Same processor as the NSS series. It does not have Ethernet network capabilities

Damnit! If I had waited to get my boat until now I likely would have spent much more money. The release of the f225 4.2 mechanical and this most likely would have made their way onto my hull!

Love my GO7 with totalscan. If you are on the fence about a Simrad GO product, absolutely pull the trigger, you will not be disappointed!

Could you still network this using the nema 2000 to a nss evo2? Other than a ethernet connection is there anything the nss evo2 will do that you can't do with the go9? Might want to use this instead of a nss 9 evo2.

Thanks

How does it do Radar without Ethernet?

Since GO9 XSE is supporting radar and XM Weather it must have an Ethernet port, but the functionality for this port seems to be limited to these two functions.

It does not have buttons.
It does not have a cardslot in front, but it has Wifi.
So you can get data ( updates, waypoints,
Tracks, routes, pictures, sonarlogs from and to it over air.
No chart sharing also if it has only Radar and Weather Ethernet capabilities

Can the go9xse be used with the simrad or lowrance outboard auto pilots?

Thanks

This looks like a really interesting unit, does the Simrad GO9 support radar chart overlay?

I'm interested in getting a pair of these or a pair of Garmin 741xsv. Do these have radar overlay on the map? Also is it possible to network them to via NMEA 2k since there is no Ethernet connection? Essentially I want to be able to look at radar on either screen, as well as engine data and sonar views, without having to purchase 2 total scan transducers. I'm just unsure if this information can be shared via NMEA?
Thanks

There is no Ethernet networking. There is a radar plug. You can establish an NMEA network and share waypoints and numerical data

But can I share sonar (like downscan and sidescan and chirp) through the NMEA network? Or must I get one transducer for each display?

No you cannot. The only data that would share will be numerical data, no fish finding and no radar.
