Con­nect­ing a boat di­rectly to the In­ter­net yields such ben­e­fits that elec­tron­ics man­u­fac­turer Nav­ico—par­ent com­pany to Sim­rad, Lowrance, and B&G—in­tro­duced GoFree as an ad­di­tional, sep­a­rate brand to fo­cus on cap­tur­ing and har­ness­ing a boat’s data. Track mod­ules mon­i­tor, record, and trans­mit ves­sel data such as rpm, en­gine hours, bat­tery lev­els, oil pres­sure and tem­per­a­ture, coolant tem­per­a­ture, fuel burn, and more via the NMEA 2000 and J1939 diesel pro­to­cols. The unit also har­vests NMEA 2000 data such as depth, boat speed and head­ing, wind speed and di­rec­tion, and fuel-tank lev­els. A ser­vice tech­ni­cian could mine the data to di­ag­nose prob­lems more quickly and ac­cu­rately. Ad­di­tion­ally, GoFree Track mon­i­tors bilge lev­els and pumps, on­board tem­per­a­tures, shore power and bat­tery sta­tus, and even ac­cess doors us­ing mul­ti­ple sen­sors, with alerts sent to con­tacts via e-mail or SMS text mes­sages. It wouldn’t be In­ter­net-ready in to­day’s world with­out a so­cial com­po­nent and the GoFree Ves­sel Web in­ter­face com­plies with a trip-record­ing fea­ture that tracks speed, charts the lo­ca­tion, and in­serts pho­tos to il­lus­trate the time­line, which can be shared with friends and fam­ily.
