Tulsa, OK – Simrad Yachting, a leader in the design and manufacture of world-class marine navigation, autopilot, radar, communications and fishfinding systems, announced today its partnership with Maverick Boat Company.

Offering dual-discrete video output with full HD resolution, the NSO evo2's black box system is two powerful MFDs in one. The system's quad-core processors deliver unprecedented, completely independent display, performance and control of the latest in navigation functionality. Key features are quickly accessible from the system's icon-driven home screen.
