We are pleased to announce new software for the Simrad® GO series of multifunction displays. This release incorporates some great new features and improvements including:
Simrad Multifunction displays should appear to run smoother and faster with this software compared to earlier 56 and 57 versions. Chart redraw speeds and speed moving from page to page has been improved.
- Improved WiFi stability
- Tide station search not working when set to Language other than English
- Lowest frequencies can now be selected when using S5100

New Feature - Yamaha Engine Integration
Yamaha® Command Link / Command link Pro engine information can now be displayed on Simrad Multifunction displays (MFDs).
When a Simrad MFD and compatible Yamaha gateway are connected to the same NMEA 2000 network, the Yamaha features are unlocked on the display. A Yamaha engine icon is then available on the HOME screen. The Yamaha on screen interface is the very similar to that of the CL7 Gauge In this version of software, a compatible gateway is either a Yamaha CL7 Gauge or a combination of Gateway (6YG-8A2D0-00-00) AND a Yamaha 6Y9 Gauge. For more information, please refer to the Yamaha Integration guide on the Simrad-yachting website.
The Yamaha interface feature can support and display information of up to four engines. Four engines can be displayed either on one MFD or spread across two displays (Port + Port CENTER on one MFD and STBD CENTER and STBD on another MFD).
