Get more from every day on the water
Simrad GO series displays are designed to help you make the most of your time on the water and are a perfect addition to smaller sportboats, dayboats, and center-consoles. Behind every super-bright GO series touchscreen lies a built-in GPS receiver, echosounder, wireless connectivity, and industry standard NMEA 2000® networking. Navigate, connect with mobile devices, control accessories like your on-board sound system, and choose from an array of built-in sonar support to cruise with confidence or fish like a pro. Radar capability—available on the GO7 and above—offers added safety and fishfinding functionality while you're out on the water.
Multi-touch display for intuitive, tablet-style control
The GO series offers true ease of use with intuitive touchscreen controls that smartphone and tablet users will find instantly familiar. Customize your home screen with the features you use most, and see everything you need on screen at once with adjustable split-screen views. Mark waypoints on charts with a touch, and easily assign meaningful names and symbols that make them quick to find when you are planning your next trip.
Chartplotter with built-in GPS helps keep you on course
Every GO series display is a full-featured chartplotter with a built-in GPS receiver. Choose from a wide range of charts available from C-MAP and others to best cover your local waterways and favorite holiday spots. You can even leverage advanced chart-specific features like C-MAP Easy Routing to make planning your next trip on the water as easy as planning a trip in the car.
Turn your display into a fishfinder
Add a sonar transducer (sold separately) and your GO series display works as a capable fishfinder, complete with CHIRP technology for clear detection of fish throughout the water column. Choose from a range of options to suit your boat, from cost-effective CHIRP or traditional transducers for a classic fish-finder view, to StructureScan® HD imaging for a picture-like view of fish holding structure beneath and around your boat.
Wireless and wired connectivity take your display beyond the helm
Built-in wireless connectivity mirrors your display to a compatible smartphone or tablet, giving you instant access to charts, radar and other functionality from anywhere on board. Wireless also enables easy online software updates via any internet hotspot. Industry-standard NMEA 2000® connectivity offers a wide range of expansion and integration options: monitor your boat’s engine performance and fuel efficiency, steer your boat with a Simrad autopilot, or control your on-board entertainment system from your GO series display.
Active Imaging 3-in-1 Sonar
See structure and cover with a new level of refined detail and at a range unmatched by any other structure imaging technology with Active Imaging™ 3-in-1 sonar featuring CHIRP, SideScan and DownScan with FishReveal™. The high-level clarity, target separation and detail of Active Imaging will help you find more fish by making it easier to quickly identify fish-holding structure like rocks, reef, weedbeds and wrecks – all at a greater distance from your boat. Get the best of CHIRP sonar and DownScan on one screen with the exclusive FishReveal™ Smart Target view that helps you easily recognize fish from structure and cover on high-detailed DownScan images.
HDI Skimmer® transducer finds fish and tracks depth
A transom-mounted HDI Skimmer® transducer delivers fish-finding sonar for amateur anglers, and offers a simple way for powerboating enthusiasts to keep an eye on depth. CHIRP technology enables clear detection of fish throughout the water column, while DownScan Imaging™ sonar creates a picture-like view of fish-holding structure beneath your boat. FishReveal™ technology combines these two specialized views into a single, crystal-clear picture of fish and structure.
Radar support offers safer cruising and more productive fishing
GO7 XSR, GO9 XSE, and GO12 XSE displays offer plug-and-play connectivity to Simrad radar solutions for powerboats of all sizes, including the smallest RIBs and runabouts. Add a Broadband 3G™, Broadband 4G™, or Halo™ Pulse Compression radar system to cruise confidently through crowded harbours, navigate safely in poor visibility, keep an eye on distant weather cells, and even locate flocks of feeding birds that hint at good fishing spots.
Broadband 3G™ radar offers a cost-effective solution
Our Broadband 3G™ radar systems are a great way to add radar capabilities to smaller powerboats. See channel markers from right off the bow to storm cells 24 nautical miles away. These compact dome radars are easy to install, have low power needs, and wake instantly from standby to give you radar coverage exactly when and where you need it. Zero radiation hazard and no external moving parts make our Broadband Radar™ systems safe to mount anywhere on board.
Broadband 4G™ radar delivers enhanced situational awareness
Perfect for powerboats of all sizes, Broadband 4G™ radar offers all the advantages of our Broadband 3G™ systems with greater range and performance. Detect targets up to 36 nautical miles away, and take advantage of Dual Range operation to monitor two distance ranges on your display at once. High-speed operation, available at close range, gives you 33% faster updates than Broadband 3G™ radar: perfect for collision avoidance during close maneuveres.
