Navico / SIMRAD announced today new free wireless tools to provide proactive “push” software notifications, remote updates, and enhance remote service support.
The new “Simrad Network Analyzer and Service Assistant” adds proactive notifications of multifunction display (MFD) updates while also sending systems information to Simrad customer service for troubleshooting purposes. Service reports sent to Simrad include connected Ethernet and NMEA 2000 devices (serial numbers & software versions).
If you have an NSS evo2, NSO evo2, or GO MFD then Simrad’s latest software release (version 54.1.85) adds the new support functionality. You need to manually download and install the update and then from then on you can purportedly do ongoing updates wirelessly.
