Default Is there anything good about NSS Evo2?

I was ready to pull the trigger on a NSS12 EVO2 with 4G, B175m and LSS-2 and their autopilot. But I see so many problems and issues on THT that I'm rather reluctant to go ahead. Seems like all threads are negative issues. Does anyone have any positive to say about this system that actually has it installed? thought that this was an awesome system but throwing 8K out the window is not what I'm looking for.

I have B175W, NSS9 Evo2, HDS9 Touch, 4G, GS25, RS35. If I had to buy over, I would buy the same setup. The sonar works fantastic, great target seperation and incredible sensitivity. The touch/knob interface is great. The radar is great. I don't have autopilot, but look forward to te Lowrance update for trolling motor control with my Xi5 trolling motor.

We've seen issues here and there, but no more than with any other system. It is by far the hottest selling Simrad platform to ever be offered. It is sort of like the perceived Lowrance problems - there are just so many units in service that there are bound to be more problems. But not a higher percentage of problems. I think you may be seeing this with the Evo2 series. Simrad is also bleeding edge. You get the absolute peak of sophistication with these units, but you also get the absolute peak of sophistication. So there are always bugs to work out. If you want something a little more "proven" but without all the sophistication then a Furuno unit would be ideal. Garmin and Ray are somehwere in the middle.

Nothing good, run fast and far away!
They aren't because as soon as you hook one up, you'll want to keep adding everything possible to it!!! It's definitely NOT good for the bank account! So run, run fast and far! make sure you get something less capable and easy to use!

It's the best of the best from Simrad and cutting edge stuff. You can always figure on bugs to be worked out and know that going in. I have a Gen 1 NSS8 and a EVO2 12" - will be adding 4G radar next year once the dust has settled from the build.
