The instruments “App” now available on Simrad GO displays has replaced the former instruments page.

The new look and feel gives a modern aesthetic refresh to match the style of the rest of the system.

Dual mode Wi-Fi

    The GO series MFDs can now connect to the Internet AND connect to a mobile device to perform functions such as screen mirroring via the Link App or registration via the Simrad companion app at the same time.
    Previously there were two WiFi modes and users would switch between client OR access point.
    There are new menu items under Settings > Wireless which makes connecting to the Internet and connecting to mobile devices much easier.

    Synchronise user created data such as routes, waypoints and tracks between the Simrad Companion App, or the C-MAP online chart and compatible MFDs
    The former C-MAP icon on the system control menu has changed to “Synchronize my data”

NaviOp performance improvements

Vessels with a compatible NaviOp system, NaviOp will now run natively as part of the operating system on the GO7 XSR or GO12, providing a faster and more responsive user experience. Easier to use, it can now be displayed full screen or as part of a split screen and will feature on the display’s homepage.

Ghost Trolling Motor Support

    Anchor: at current location, at waypoint, at cursor
    Heading lock: with heading adjustment

Power-Pole® Control

Simrad GO multifunction displays can now control Power-Pole shallow water anchor systems. Communication to the Power-Pole system is via Bluetooth.

When connected to a Power-Pole system there is a new Control Bar icon. This will show controls for each connected power pole.

    Engine battery/batteries
    Battery connections
    Power-Pole charge module
    Auxiliary battery/batteries
    Charge module AC power source connection

Mercury ® VesselView Link update over NMEA 2000

Mercury Vessel View Link modules can now be updated via the network from a Simrad MFD. Removing the need to install an updated SD card directly into the black box.

Es wird anzunehmen sein, dass wie bei allen Geräten die Firmwareunterstützung nach einer gewissen Zeit eingestellt wird. Das betrifft aber nicht nur Navico, sondern auch andere Unternehmen. Es kann sich aber auch um eine Verzögerung handeln, wenn die Geräteklassen abweichende Features haben.

ich habs heute auf meinem GO9 installiert.
Die neue Instrumenten Seite ist sehr schön und lässt sich auch super nach den eigenen Bedürfnissen anpassen.
Aber ich habe schon gemerkt, dass die Prozessorleistung etwas zu wünschen lässt, die Ladezeiten der Instrumenten App sind schon manchmal sehr lang.
Mir ist aufgefallen, dass die Wassertiefe im Netzwerk/in den Menüs nicht angezeigt wird. Da muss Simrad noch nacharbeiten.

Aber schaunen wir mal.
