Garmin announces support for Mercury Marine SmartCraft engines

New SmartCraft Connect gateway brings VesselView engine data to Garmin multi-function displays

OLATHE, Kan.--()--Garmin® International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ:GRMN), the world’s largest1 and most innovative marine electronics manufacturer, today announced it has added support for Mercury Marine® VesselView engine data across its ECHOMAP Ultra, ECHOMAP UHD* and GPSMAP® series multi-function displays (MFDs).

“We’re pleased to work with Mercury to offer engine data features that our customers and OEMs have been asking for,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales. “VesselView compatibility gives boaters access to vital Mercury engine information directly on their Garmin display for a more integrated and convenient on-the-water experience.”

Compatible Garmin displays on Mercury-powered boats can receive engine performance data, including rpm, speed, fuel flow, temperature, trim and much more via Mercury’s new SmartCraft Connect gateway, which enables monitoring of up to four engines simultaneously.

“Our VesselView system, available to Garmin users via SmartCraft Connect, keeps track of everything and provides alerts if any engine measurements stray from the norm. That way, boaters can have peace of mind and pay attention to more important things like enjoying their time on the water,” said Rob Hackbarth, Mercury SmartCraft product category director.

VesselView functionality is expected to be available for Garmin customers in the second quarter of 2021. It will require a free software update from Garmin and the purchase of a SmartCraft Connect gateway from Mercury. To learn more, visit mercurymarine.com/smartcraftconnect or garmin.com/support.
