VesselView Mobile


VesselView Mobile

The VesselView Mobile system for displaying engine data on compatible mobile devices has been made available by Mercury Marine for sale in EU countries(*). The VesselView Mobile app is available as a free download from the Apple App Store for iOS devices (iPhone and iPad) as well as the Google Play store (Android smartphones and tablets). Together with a Bluetooth enabled interface module, which can be purchased from the Mercury dealer network, the app gives boaters access to their boat’s SmartCraft® digital data on their mobile device. The product recently won a prestigious IBEX Innovation Award.

The VesselView Mobile Bluetooth module is compatible with all Mercury SmartCraft capable engines from 40 HP and up built since 2003 (including Mercury MerCruiser sterndrive and inboard engines). A single module supports single to quad engine applications.

SmartCraft® is a fully integrated suite of digital technologies, including marine gauges, sensors, vessel systems and computer-controlled features, giving users a higher level of control over their boat’s propulsion and electrical systems. Now, with VesselView Mobile, users can see SmartCraft® engine data on the screen of their mobile device. The app also includes useful new features such as Fuel Information, Maintenance Reminders, Mapping, Performance Summary and Fault Code Diagnostics.

 

VesselView Mobile makes preparing for and spending a day on the water easier, safer and more enjoyable by letting users perform the following functions from their mobile device:

  • Connect to the SmartCraft® data network in your boat from your iOS or Android mobile device via BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy 4.0).
  • See SmartCraft® engine parameters like engine hours, fuel burn, water temperature, battery voltage, rpm, etc. (parameters available are specific to each engine family).
  • Get fault code diagnostic information so you know and understand if that fault is something to be addressed when you return to the dock or is more urgent.
  • Fuel Management provides accurate fuel usage data along with fuel remaining plus indicates time and distance to empty when the user enters fuel added via the app. 
  • Locate your nearest Mercury Marine dealer.
  • Get points of interest information for your body of water, including fuel and restaurant locations, and more.
  • Record a moment on the water for future reference.
  • Access checklists associated with your boating lifestyle.
  • Receive maintenance reminders and access historical maintenance information logs.

The VesselView Mobile app, which will be initially released in English language and with imperial units of measure only, will also soon provide users with a web-based account that gives them and their preferred dealer an even deeper connection to their boat. During the first quarter of 2017, an app update will support multi languages and metric units of measure.
