VOLVO PENTA EASY CONNECT
EASY CONNECT APP FOR BOATING
STAY CONNECTED TO YOUR BOAT – WHEREVER YOU ARE
With Volvo Penta’s Easy Connect boating app for leisure as well as commercial applications, you can stay connected to your vessel or fleet, wherever you are. Monitor, plan ahead or send crucial engine data directly to your service dealer. You get complete control of your vessel’s engine status – and much more – straight to your smartphone or tablet.
WHAT IS VOLVO PENTA EASY CONNECT?
Easy Connect is an app-based tool that provides you with a portable dashboard. The app communicates directly with your engine and driveline via an onboard Bluetooth® interface. This means that you get an instant overview of engine status presented in an intuitive interface on your smart phone or tablet. Once Easy Connect has been installed, you will receive continuous updates through the app that will unlock even more features and functions.
EASY TO DOWNLOAD
Easy Connect is easy to use – and easy to install in two quick steps. All you need is the app, and the Easy Connect Interface installed in your boat. Once connected, the Interface transmits the information to your smart device.
A CLOSER LOOK AT THE EASY CONNECT APP
The app presents your data in an easy, intuitive interface that will add new levels of convenience to your operation, no matter if you’re leisurely cruising or managing a commercial fleet.
The Easy Connect app summarizes all the information on the status of your driveline. This information, which includes chassis ID, engine hours, diagnostic fault codes as well as installed features or components, can be easily emailed to your service dealer via the in-built sharing function.
MY VIEW – PERSONALIZED OVERVIEW
You can easily personalize your display mode. By default, My View provides you with vital engine data, but you can easily configure the view to fit your personal requirements and the data you deem most relevant.
With the Map View you can check your current position and the route you have traveled. As an option, you can use navigation charts from Navionics for further precision.
Easy Connect is capable of showing additional data – such as average fuel consumption, distance to empty, speed and travel distance – if you have a trip computer installed in your boat.
Route data is stored locally in the app. In the Home View, it’s easily accessible for planning future trips or checking fuel consumption for past trips. Should you want to share info about past journeys, this is easily done.
KEY MARINE LEISURE BENEFITS – AT SEA AND ON LAND
EASY CONNECT FOR MARINE LEISURE
Depending on your engine type, additional sensors, and functionalities installed in your boat, Easy Connect gives you many possibilities to enhance your boating experience, through both live functions when onboard as well as data and route information stored within the app from when you last connected to the boat.
*Highly recommended for yachts without dashboard
PORTABLE DASHBOARD DISPLAY
STAY IN CONTROL ANYWHERE
Turn your smart device into a portable dashboard display – a great complement to analog instrumentation. Easy Connect is also great for letting friends and family monitor the trip when onboard.
PLAN YOUR TRIP
ALWAYS THINK AHEAD
Easy Connect stores all your journeys in the app, including vessel data such as engine hours and fuel levels. The stored info is perfect for planning future trips and for gauging fuel requirements.
SOCIAL MEDIA FUNCTIONALITY
SHARE WITH YOUR FRIENDS
At sea, there are often moments worth telling your family and friends about. Share your experiences and favorite spots on the go or from home.
SIMPLIFY SERVICE AND SUPPORT
CONNECT EASILY WITH YOUR DEALER
In case you get a diagnostic trouble code, Easy Connect lets you access data like chassis-ID and engine hours, making it easier to talk to your Volvo Penta dealer – for faster, more efficient service.
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.
