Mercury said in a statement that the system reports such performance data as engine rpm, fuel flow, oil temperature, trim and more. SmartCraft Connect can simultaneously monitor up to four engines.

“The VesselView system, which is now available to Garmin and Raymarine users via SmartCraft Connect, keeps track of everything and provides alerts if any engine measurements stray away from the norm,” said SmartCraft product category director Rob Hackbarth in the statement.


Garmin vice president of worldwide sales Dan Bartel said VesselView functionality will be available in the second quarter of this year.

Raymarine general manager Gregoire Outters added that users of Raymarine’s Axiom MFD can access the technology with a free download of the latest version of its LightHouse software.
