Mer­cury Marine’s Ac­tive Trim sys­tem can now be con­trolled through Ves­selview in­for­ma­tion screens. Ac­tive Trim au­to­mat­i­cally trims an en­gine or en­gines, mak­ing boat­ing eas­ier and more fun and im­prov­ing en­gine per­for­mance and fuel ef­fi­ciency – all while de­liv­er­ing a bet­ter over­all driv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. Pre­vi­ously, Ac­tive Trim was con­trolled through a sep­a­rate dash-mounted key pad. Now driv­ers can have that con­trol through Ves­selview’s mul­ti­func­tion touch screen. The orig­i­nal key pad is still avail­able for boat own­ers who want it. Ac­tive Trim has five se­lectable trim pro­files that ac­com­mo­date nearly any boat ap­pli­ca­tion. Own­ers can sim­ply run their boat and se­lect the best pro­file for any ap­pli­ca­tion, then per­son­alise Ac­tive Trim to their driv­ing style and/or com­pen­sate for changes in boat load, op­er­a­tor pref­er­ence and weather con­di­tions. This means Ac­tive Trim can be used on high-per­for­mance boats as well as fam­ily run­abouts, with driv­ers able to eas­ily dis­en­gage and re-en­gage the sys­tem as needed, just by us­ing the man­ual trim but­tons.
