Simrad’s GO7 XSE multifunction display is now being used by a fair number of boaters, and the manufacturer says the early reviews are strong. Specifically, boaters are citing the unit’s value, versatility and ease of installation.

“I use it as a GPS, fishfinder and to monitor the instrumentation that would normally be on your console,” one user wrote of the 7-inch unit. “Why have all those gauges and instrumentation, when this product does it all, and serves as your GPS and as your fishfinder?”

Simrad is also now shipping the first units of its GO5 XSE, a unit with the same sonar and navigation technology as the GO7 XSE.
