Simrad has updated its app to celebrate the marine electronics manufacturer’s 75th anniversary. The app includes new mapping features, advanced functionality, and mirroring — control of Simrad multifunction displays from your smartphone or tablet.
“The new mirroring feature allows you to view and direct your Simrad electronics from anywhere on the boat right from the palm of your hand,” says James Methven, Global Head of Brand, Simrad Yachting. Easy integration with companion devices along with intuitive C-MAP charts and features are another draw for Simrad owners.
The app is free to download and offers free up-to-date nautical charts from C-MAP, personal waypoints, routes and tracks, latest marine weather, and personalization. The app also allows you to register your Simrad device(s), ensuring you have the latest software, manuals, information, and product tips, as well as the ability to synchronize your waypoints and routes. The premium version has additional functionalities including stand-alone navigation.
The Premium Version
The premium option, for an annual subscription upgrade for $14.99, offers global charts and offline maps, high-resolution bathymetry charts, Automatic Identification System (AIS), Simrad Community Traffic, 5-day weather overlay along route, GPS navigation data, and line, track recording, plus custom depth shading.
The full complement of weather data is provided in both versions including wind data, sea state, tides and currents, and water temperature. The app also features detailed fishing information for anglers. Download the app at either the Apple Store for iOS, or Google Play for Android devices.
