Newly released, the Simrad® XSE range is a powerful, full-featured standalone marine chartplotter/fishfinder packed into a compact, easy-to-use display. Loaded with today’s latest boating technologies, both the GO5 and GO7 XSE feature a super-bright multi-touch display, internal 10 Hz GPS receiver, StructureScan® HD and CHIRP Sonar, autopilot integration/control, engine data monitoring, full audio entertainment integration with SonicHub®2, integrated wireless connectivity and the powerful, new Simrad TripIntelTM trip computer.


“With a sleek design and enhanced capabilities, the XSE sets a new standard for easy to use standalone chartplotters for sports boats and coastal fishermen,” said Leif Ottosson, CEO of Navico. “Built on the heritage, quality and innovation of our brand, the compact Simrad XSE truly does it all, at an unbeatable price.”


The XSE display offers intuitive multi-touch controls that smartphone and tablet users will instantly find familiar. Boaters are able to tap the screen to create or select waypoints, pinch-to-zoom, or tap-and-drag to pan smoothly across charts, while simple home screen and menu layouts allow quick access to all functions. Adjustable split-screen views and customizable panel layouts with large, clearly captioned icons that are easy to recognize, make the XSE a simple-to-use, full-featured chartplotter.

Also unique to the XSE, the Cruise Charting page combines crucial navigation data and charts into one easy to read display, while new TripIntel technology tracks and displays the key information needed to plan a safe and enjoyable day on the water. TripIntel provides fuel range overlaid on charts, current and future tide levels, and a detailed history of previous trips including the route taken and how the boat performed. The Simrad XSE connects to any NMEA 2000-compatible equipment aboard a vessel including outboard and inboard engines, as well as fuel flow, fluid level, speed, heading, and water temperature sensors and more. For unsurpassed navigation, the chartplotter supports the widest available range of cartography options including: C-MAP® MAX-N, Navionics®, Insight®, Insight Genesis® and NV Digital® Charts.


Anglers can take full advantage of the built-in sonar by simply adding a suitable transducer for accurate, real-time depth tracking and fishfinding. A scrollable depth history view lets boaters track back and easily set waypoints for promising anchorages. StructureScan HD Imaging offers a picture-like view of the bottom on each side and beneath the boat with DownScan Imaging™ view, and CHIRP Sonar provides improved target identification at greater depths, a clearer display with less interference and enhanced target separation. ForwardScan™ sonar technology built into the GO7 XSE (transducer sold separately) also provides forward-looking, two-dimensional sonar views of the bottom depth ahead of your boat – a powerful defense against running aground, and an invaluable tool for locating secure sites to drop anchor.


The Simrad SonicHub2 marine audio system brings complete control of on-the-water entertainment to the XSE display, eliminating the need for a separate stereo head-unit. Stream music from Bluetooth® connected tablets, smartphones, and other mobile devices, play MP3 files from a USB flash drive, or listen to the built-in AM/FM radio. For additional flexibility, the GoFree™ Controller App, gives boaters the capability to tether the XSE to Android and IOS devices, mirroring the display’s screen on smartphones and providing full remote control via iPad.


Ranging in retail price from $649 to $799, depending on the transducer included with the display, the Simrad GO7 XSE is scheduled for February 2016 availability, with the Simrad GO5 XSE scheduled for March 2016 availability, ranging in retail price from $449 to $599, in either case depending on the transducer included with the display, from authorized distributors throughout the U.S. and Canada.
