I just received announcement via email of integrated Helm display in partnership with Navico. No word if NMEA 2000 compliant, but if past any guide likely not.

"Glass Dash stands for a Mercury® and Simrad® connected system that delivers a truly integrated helm solution that provides total access and control,scalable to the customers vessel. This system creates the ability to display all vessel information (navigation, radar, sonar, engine data and diagnostics, system monitoring, digital switching etc.) on single or multiple networked displays."

From February of 2104:

Press release from Simrad:

http://www.simrad-yachting.com/en-US/Pressreleases/2014/ Simrad-Mercury-Unveil-Next-Generation-Glass-Bridge-Information-System/

From article in Trade Only:

From unknown date or epoch:

Recording presenting evaluation by BoatTest.Com:

In the above recording, the Simrad display is said to get all of its information from the Mercury Vessel View display. That suggests the GlassDash display may not be a stand alone display, but must work in conjunction with the Vessel View display. Perhaps the Vessel View contains a gateway and translator so the engine data can be carried from the closed and proprietary Brunswick SmartCraft system to the commonly used NMEA-2000.

This press release

http://www.mercury-marine.eu/media/579645/glassdash_system_en.pdf

confirms that the Simrad display needs the VesselView proprietary display to be purchased in order for GlassDash to work.
