With the all-new SmartCraft® Connect module, the Mercury VesselView® experience is now expanding to meet the needs and preferences of even more of your customers. SmartCraft Connect integrates Garmin® and Raymarine® multi-function displays with SmartCraft engines to deliver VesselView functionality on the same screen as the GPS chart plotter and sonar.
This marks the first time that VesselView integration has been available for Garmin and Raymarine, which join fellow industry leaders Lowrance® and Simrad® as SmartCraft-compatible brands.
The VesselView expansion gives your customers more freedom to choose the devices that work best for their boating activities, while having easy access to more engine performance data and alerts than any other engine-monitoring system in the marine industry. VesselView tracks rpm, speed, fuel flow, temperature, trim and more and delivers critical engine alerts when needed.
The SmartCraft Connect module is also Bluetooth® and Wi-Fi® enabled, which will make future software updates a breeze as we continue to roll out new VesselView features.
SmartCraft Connect also offers key benefits for your business:
- Simple installation – SmartCraft Connect can be installed on-engine or under the helm. The simplified rigging kit consolidates CAN P and CAN H gateways into a single device, which makes the installation process faster and more affordable.
- Easy configuration – The all-new Mercury SmartCraft Manager app, available for IOS® and Android™, makes it simple to configure SmartCraft Connect using a mobile device. The app is available to download now from the Apple® App Store or Google Play® store.
- Flexible vessel compatibility – SmartCraft Connect is available for single, dual, or triple/quad engine configurations.
- Easy customer service – SmartCraft integration helps customers track engine performance and maintenance. It also delivers engine faults, notifying customers if the engine needs to be brought to your dealership for service. This adds a layer of confidence for consumers while providing your team with a powerful tool for delivering quality customer service.
