“We’re simplifying the selection and installation of Airmar Technology products,” Braffitt said. “This app puts all the answers right in the palm of their hands.”

Use the app to select the right transducer, calculate the bottom coverage, identify the correct tilt angle or order the right cable to install the latest marine electronics.

The app is free and designed for iPhone, iPad and iPod smartphones and tablets running iOS 6.1 and newer. Find it at the Apple App Store by searching for “Gemeco” or by going to https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/install/id692762311.
