Worry less about your boat

BoatConnect™ keeps you connected to your boat from your phone.

Simrad BoatConnect

When you first got your boat, it was about being out on the water. The silence. The freedom. The breeze. But things can change. Now owning a boat means worrying about it. Is it safe? Is it where you left it? The BoatConnect hub and app allow you to stay up to date with the status of your boat.

Did you lend your boat to someone else?

With location tracking you can stay close to them.


This feature allows you to keep tabs on the position of your boat. See if your friend has arrived safely at their destination, or simply check if your boat is where you left it. All that information is one tap away on the BoatConnect app.

When your boat is not where it should be…

…you get a movement alert on your phone.


How it works is, through the BoatConnect app, you designate an area around your boat. If its boundaries are crossed, the app sends you a notification on your phone. This means you can stay close to family or employees out at sea, or track a stolen boat in the unlikely event of theft. Stay informed and decide what to do.

You won’t have to take a rain check because of low power. Ever.

Check your boat’s battery status remotely.


Your trip at sea is set. Then you get to the marina and find out the vessel is low on power. Frustrating, isn't it? BoatConnect made it easy for you to check the battery level beforehand. Through the app, with a single tap.

Bad weather is just that: bad.

Even for moored boats.


Knowing the weather at your boat's location might not seem like the most important thing. Unless there is a storm. Then you worry how well secured it is. With BoatConnect you are one tap away from knowing the local weather status. You stay informed and take the right actions.

Remembering special places…

…and retracing your way to them.


Whether it's going back to that amazing snorkeling spot or just keeping tabs on your vessel, the BoatConnect app keeps a history of your boat's recent travel locations.

Complete your connected experience…

In addition to the standard BoatConnect package, our service now supports 3 additional sensors* that will inform you if things are not running as they should.

The entry sensor will let you know if your door or hatch has been opened, the temperature sensor notifies you about unusual or extreme temperature conditions, and the water sensor will detect a high water level before it becomes a problem.

These sensors add to your peace of mind, are easy to install and can be monitored on the app.

*Sensors bought separately.

It's easy to install BoatConnect.
