Evinrude E-TEC G2 Engine Data Integrated in Lowrance and Simrad Chartplotters
Evinrude announce today that it has partnered with Navico, the parent company of Lowrance, Simrad and B&G to create an integrated experience for consumers using the Lowrance and Simrad navigation and sonar products with Evinrude E-TEC G2 engines.
Creating a seamless experience for Evinrude E-TEC G2 and Navico digital display end-users, a new software update for select Navico displays allows Evinrude E-TEC G2 engine data to be displayed directly on the chartplotter eliminating the need for additional gauges or hardware. In addition, certain engine features can now be controlled right from the multifunction display. This new functionality gives the operator enhanced situational awareness and complete fingertip control of the performance of the engine.
Mirroring the data typically shown on most digital engine gauges, Lowrance and Simrad displays can now give users access to vital engine and vessel information such as engine RPM, temperature data, and fuel and oil levels, as well as custom Evinrude messages for engine functions such as, water in fuel and overheating warnings, and other detailed engine messages and recovery actions. In addition to displaying engine data, the new functionality also gives users remote control of Evinrude’s iTrim intelligent trim control system and iSteer Dynamic Power Steering feature directly through the touchscreen devices. Boaters can also initiate Evinrude E-TEC G2’s convenient “one touch” auto-winterization functionality.
“Partnering with Lowrance and Simrad enables us to elevate our engine’s capabilities with features that improve accessibility for boaters,” said Nando . . .
