Default Simrad update message

I keep getting this update message on my Simrad NSS12 Evo 2 but there are no updates for these items listed on the Simrad or Lowrance sites. I have the latest Evo2 update installed. Any idea where to get the updates, or how to clear the need for them?

If they are all working fine now, i would just ignore the alert. Sometimes the updates can cause more issues.

The latest NSS EVO 2 software is Version 5.0-57.1.207 released last month

The update message looks to be for something connected to the unit rather than the GPS itself as the current version and the updated version noted in the message are not lining up with versions that run the Evo2 or Evo 3. Go into "About" in the main settings on your unit to see what version of the Software it says is running it.

The new .207 Simrad software now checks all of the attached Simrad (Navico) network devices and reports those that need update

Sometimes Simrad includes those alerts for other-device SW versions which are not released yet and ... may not be for some time. You have to cancel the alert each time you turn on the mfd until the version actually gets released. A little annoying but not difficult, though as far as I could tell, you can't stop it from popping up until the alerted version is found and installed.
