Volvo Penta’s new app, Easy Connect, lets boat owners connect to their boat via their smart device. The new app enables direct access to engine, boat and route data on owners’ smartphone or tablet. The free-to-download app is paired with an on-board Bluetooth interface installed in the boat, which transfers data. This gives instant live access while on board and information for referencing later when back on land.
The Easy Connect app has a simple and intuitive dashboard-style layout that can be personalised to each customer’s requirements. There is a ‘Captain’ view for on-board operation and a ‘Home’ view to see saved information when not connected to the boat.
The app also keeps a list of all previous journeys, allowing boat owners to revisit their favourite trips, while they can also use the app’s map function to share their trips via social media.
