Boat owners can now take to the water with all the information they need in the palm of their hands. Volvo Penta’s new Easy Connect app gives boat owners access to engine, boat and route data – directly on their smartphone or tablet. The free-to-download app is paired with an onboard Bluetooth® interface installed in the boat, which transfers data. This gives instant live access while onboard and information for referencing later when back on land. Route history is automatically stored within the app, which is a perfect tool to plan for future trips.
Share the experience
Let your friends and family monitor the trip onboard with Easy Connect. The app lets them follow and save routes, with the possibility to share them on social media – while still keeping a curious eye on speed and heading. Routes and boat data are automatically stored in the Easy Connect app, and can later be accessed and shared from anywhere (sharing function requires an Internet connection).
Interact with your Volvo Penta dealer
Easy Connect makes it possible to share diagnostic trouble codes with your selected Volvo Penta dealer, including; serial number and engine hours. A useful function when booking a service or inspection – allowing your dealer to prepare service and help more efficiently.
Easy installed interface
To get started, the Easy Connect interface plugs directly into the EVC multilink at the helm station, or into the engine harness on non-EVC gasoline engines.
The Easy Connect interface includes NMEA2000 functionality. This means it can also be connected to an existing NMEA network within the boat. This enables you to access additional data from i.e. speed and depth sensors.
In addition, the Easy Connect interface can be used to convert engine data into NMEA2000 compatible chart plotters/multi-function displays onboard.
The product is available for diesel and gasoline engines with Electronic Vessel Control (EVC) in single and twin installations. It’s also available for non-EVC gasoline engines from model year 2006 in single installations.
