Both the Simrad NSS7 and the Raymarine e7 are so new I would think there is hardly enough time on the water for an objective comparison...but the new e7 has some very interesting points and will be released shortly.

When talking about good fishfinders you can forget Garmin until they have the new generation out. The NSS fishfinder is excellent, it the same technology as BSM-1 and HDS, but it seems as the firmware is even better than for the two other versions.

I've been testing HDS and NSS on the same boat using the same transducer, with HDS I needed low noise filtering to avoid noise I think is originating from the engine wiring, I had planned to reroute the transducer wiring, but with NSS I don't see this noise even without any noise filtering.

Raymarine e7 is not available yet, but I expect it will have a good fishfinder as other Raymarine units.
