    Im interested in buying a pair of NSS9 Evo 2's for my boat and I saw they offer refurbished units with a 90 day warranty for a significant discount. what are your thoughts? Is it safe to buy these or would you spend the extra $800 for new units? I want to save some money, and that extra savings will go towards new thru hullTransducers.

    Check with Gil Travis at Semperfifishing on the Hull Truth site. He had new w/ 2 year warranty NSS9 Evo 2’s for just over a grand. Bought one last month.

    Tuner bought a 16” Evo 2 reman unit. I think he said it came with a 1 year warranty. I’d PM him or maybe he will respond here. Also, watch out for that company. They claim to be a “factory outlet” for everyone. I dealt with them once, and ended up cancelling the order after they started requesting weird info from me. They are in New York and all have heavy accents. Just sayin...

    Lastly, the Evo 3 has a better screen for sunlight and polarized glasses readability. You might want to consider one for the outside station. I’m looking to shoehorn a 12” Evo 3 into my console.

    I'll pm him and ask for his experience. Come to think of it now that you mention it I also canceled my order with this company in the past after being sketched out. After that they would constantly call me back to see if they could change my mind into buying from them. Wierd as hell.

    I just ordered a reman nss16 evo2 from BOE that was substantially less $$ than everyone else and they have EXCELLENT support. Nick knows his sonar.

    What transducers should I run? I want side scan and chirp so I'd need 3 correct? I was looking at the B275 with fairing block but I'm not too sure. Any advice is helpful

    Im looking at the exact same one. Tom, who's on the Parker forum on this board has that on his 2320. It has chirp, but you will need a different ducer for sidescan.

    From my experience, its "structure scan" so it doesn't see fish on the side....just structure. Accurate to about 100-140 ft from what friends tell me. I wont be putting that on the new boat.

    Thats right, I remember now, he was running a pair of LSS2 for Structure Scan and a B275. What will you be running?

    I bought my reman NSS16 evo2 from oceanjake. He purchased it but never installed it.

    The evo2 screen is amazing. No problem with polarized sunglasses even from the deck looking into the house. Maybe the evo3 is brighter? The Simrad WiFi box is about $200.00 and allows for remote screens. Use the savings for a better transducer.

    I put a b275lhw on my last boat, great sounder just keep in mind if you go with an evo2, you need an s5100 sounder to use the low and the high. You can directly plug in one channel and it would work (I tested that).

    Hmm, I didn't know, and that would add roughly another $2000 on top. The Evo 3 doesn't require any module to be able to use the B275 correct, it's just plug and play?

    I believe it does. If you are considering a multi screen setup, you only would need a single evo3, then you can network to an evo2.

    if you are going to use more than one transducer than get the EVO3.
    I currently have the EVO2 with B75 and 3D structure scan. I can only run chirp or the structure scan. The EVO3 was not available at the time. Eventually I will just get a 2nd panel to resolve my issue. The structure scan absolutely marks fish and gives great bottom detail. They claim, I think 300ft but in the ocean 200ft is a better depth.

    My biggest regret was not spending the extra money on the 1k transducer.

    There’s also a $300 rebate for the 9” Evo 3–Which leads me to believe there may be an Evo 4 around the corner. That’s one of the reasons I’m dragging my feet on my MFD purchase. That, and the antenna protrusion is giving me flush mount heartburn.

    If you have facebook would join Nick Garrott's sonar group. tons of excellent info available.

    Nick recommended that I go with the B285 HW for offshore. this would mean I would lose bottom at about 500' but then he said I can connect my old Furuno 1kw 50-200 ducer to my second screen for accurate bottom. that saved me at least $1k.
