    New SIMRAD CRUISE range

    Navico have introduced a new budget entry level system to their Simrad range, offering just the essentials at a very sharp price point. press release and video below. - Moose
    In 2019 Simrad has introduced their new Cruise Series. These units are offered in 5, 7 and 9 inch versions. If you are in need of a full featured chartplotter and a capable sonar then the Cruise should be all you need. And with the low price point, you may be able to get a larger screen size than you could with other units. The Cruise Series is ideal for boats with simple navigational needs. Wakeboard boats, small fishing boats, express cruisers and sail boats.

    They share a similar menu and interface to Simrad top of the line series.

    A transom mounted 83/200 transducer is included
    The unit includes a bracket mount. An optional flush mount kit is available
    The unit is preloaded with coastal charts
    Can use optional Navionics and C-Map cartography

    Good concept for a very simple standalone unit. Will run with one set of frequencies only, no possibility of networking anything. No touch screen, but appears to have a wifi ability?

    its basically a lowrance hook2 with a knob in a simrad body. IMO it weakens simrads brand a little. but... not to worry.

    Priced between 500 and 800 "havnt got AUS pricing yet" but sure if you want a good little unit, then. not to bad.

    spoiled for choice !
