 +Note that this feature also works on the NSS EVO2. But only limited. And its not officially supported and also there will be no new software releases made by either Victron nor Navico to fix any issues that may arise. In other words, it is not a supported configuration by Navico but the consumer can feel free to use it (if they contact Navico or Victron service, our team will tell them it is not a supported configuration). More testing and user feedback will have to show what does and what does not work on the EVO2.
