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.

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.

NMEA Functionality

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.
