Simrad NSE12 and NSE8 - NMEA convention 2010 Simrad Yachting
Simrad Yachting, a leader in the design and manufacture of world-class marine navigation, autopilot, radar, communications and fishfinding systems, announced today that its innovative NSE multifunction display and professional-grade autopilot systems received multiple awards at the 2010 National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) convention held in Seattle, Washington.

Judged by a panel of experts organized by Boating Writers International (BWI), Simrad NSE with 2.0 software functionality received 'Honorable Mention' in the event’s most prestigious category, the 'NMEA Technology Award.' Continuing a long-standing tradition as an industry favorite, the Simrad AP24 and AP28 also received top honors for 'Best Autopilot' as voted by NMEA members. The latter award represents the sixth such NMEA award for Simrad Yachting autopilot systems.

'We are thrilled to have the NMEA recognize our top-performing Simrad products,' said Louis Chemi, COO, Navico Americas. 'Our networkable NSE system and industry-leading autopilots were designed to provide reliable solutions with real benefits for boaters. These honors from NMEA are an affirmation of our efforts to continue developing professional-grade performance solutions that exceed customer expectations.'

The fully-networkable NSE system is a lightning-fast GPS chartplotter with fully loaded embedded cartography for out-of-the-box functionality. NSE also provides boaters with complete control of a range of onboard integrated functions – including industry-exclusive full autopilot control, StructureScan™ sonar imaging, as well as digital switching, monitoring and control of electronic systems on your boat through BEP Marine’s new CZone™. The multifunction display – available with brilliant 8-inch or 12-inch screen options – also features plug-and-plug connectivity with the award- winning BR24 Broadband Radar™, BSM-1 and BSM-2 Broadband Sounders, the SonicHub™ marine audio server and the WM-2 SIRIUS® weather module.

Recognized as the premier autopilot solutions for both power and sailing vessels, the AP24 and AP28 autopilots feature enhanced auto-steering and seamless integration with all electronics – including plug-and-play compatibility with the Volvo engine system. Providing ultimate reliability and performance, both models boast state- of-the-art control capabilities, a crisp easy-to-view display and advanced SimNet networking.

Available from authorized Simrad Yachting dealers and distributors in the United States and Canada, the Simrad NSE12 and NSE8 have suggested retail prices of US $4,595 and $2,295, respectively. Currently available in a wide selection of user- friendly, pre-packaged bundles, the Simrad AP24 and AP28 can be custom-ordered to match any navigation-upgrade requirement.
