Navico GoFree Chart Update
Until now, a multifunction display’s Wi-Fi capabilities were limited to connecting smartphones and tablets as remote monitors. Navico, makers of Simrad, Lowrance and B&G navigation gear, has just released the latest firmware update for its Wi-Fi capable NSS evo2 and NSO evo2 multifunction displays. With this update, your multifunction display logs into your local area network, automatically polling Navico’s websites for firmware updates. But that’s just a start. Now, with GoFree, Simrad users can browse the GoFree website for full charts and mapping updates. The firmware enables direct and automatic upload of recorded sonar records for developing into social maps as soon as your multifunction display comes into range of a friendly Wi-Fi signal. Your system and GoFree can now download crowd-sourced charts as well, offering incredible detail for your favorite fishing spots, never before available.
