Announcing the latest in remote, real-time vessel monitoring - Simrad BoatConnect™ provides boat owners with the ultimate peace of mind at an unparalleled value, keeping users informed of their boat's location, battery level, trip history and more.

Delivering important updates on a boat's status to a compatible smartphone, BoatConnect is comprised of an easy-to-install hub and an easy-to-use app. Once installed, the solution provides at-a-glance information to enhance the boating experience.

Perfect for trip planning, users can quickly access real-time weather in the vicinity of their boat, as well as confirm the current status of onboard power using the remote battery check option. In the event the battery drops below a pre-defined threshold, users are notified with immediate status updates. The BoatConnect app enables boat owners to keep track of family and friends using their boats and includes a trip log allowing boaters to maintain an active record of their time on the water.

For enhanced security when a boat is not in use, the app also allows owners to establish a virtual perimeter, known as a "geo-fence," around their vessel and receive alerts if it travels outside a designated area. This feature comes in handy in the event of theft - enabling users to trace their boat's location. The BoatConnect hub is hard-wired to a vessel's battery and, if power is lost, will continue to provide updates for up to five days on internal backup power.

"The BoatConnect service gives boat owners valuable peace of mind," said Knut Frostad, CEO, Navico Group. "Whether your vessel is moored, anchored or tied up in a slip, BoatConnect provides access at your fingertips to what is happening on and around your vessel. We look forward to enhancing BoatConnect with additional capabilities as new sensors and app updates become available."

The BoatConnect hub is priced at just $99, and the app can be downloaded for free from the Apple or Google Play App Store. Subscription to the BoatConnect service is $19.99 per month. The subscription can be cancelled at any time.

In 2019, Simrad BoatConnect will be sold only in the Americas, due to connectivity requirements, and BoatConnect activation will be limited to use in the U.S. (including Hawaii and Alaska), as well as Canada.
