Using new technology from Volvo Penta you can now view engine data in a dashboard-style overview straight from your Smart device! All you need is the Easy Connect Interface connected to your engine, the Easy Connect app installed on your Smart device and the data will be transferred via Bluetooth®. Connect while on-board to view engine performance or share data from previous trips with friends from the comfort of your own home.
Add extra value to your boating experience with these features:
The Easy Connect Interface kit includes everything you need to get started and is available for supply through our Essex and Ipswich branches. The Interface itself plugs directly into the EVC multilink at the helm station, or into the engine harness on non-EVC gasoline engines.
If you would like an estimate for one of our mobile engineers to complete the installation, please contact our Service Department.
Captain's View (connected)
When onboard, Easy Connect provides a complete view of the boat’s vital information in real time. Switch between different menu screens, showing boat speed, engine speed, maps etc. and share your experiences on social media.
Home View (not connected)
Home view stores your past journeys so that you can recreate them and share on social media. You can also access an overview of key data such as fuel tank level and engine hours, and email engine status to your Volvo Penta dealer.
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 application is available for Apple devices with iOS 10 and later. For Android devices, the operating system must be 5.0 or later with Bluetooth® 4.2.
Easy Connect is available for the following engines in single and twin installations:
