Description

The Link app gives you remote control of Wi-Fi enabled Simrad, Lowrance, or B&G multifunction displays from your smartphone or tablet. Link lets you select any Wi-Fi enabled display on board, duplicates the screen in real-time on your mobile device, and puts control of most display functions at your fingertips.

Work with charts, sonar, and radar, control your on-board entertainment system, view data from connected engines and instruments, and much more. With Link, you’re constantly connected to your boat’s key systems from anywhere on board – making it easier to plan trips, fish, sail, handle maintenance, and otherwise make the best of your time on the water.

Link also gives you the ability to wirelessly back up and restore waypoints, routes, tracks, and display settings directly to your mobile device. This makes it easier than ever to protect your valuable boating data against loss or theft, and to keep your backups up-to-date with zero hassle.

The Link app is compatible with Simrad NSS evo3, NSS evo2, NSO evo2, and GO series displays; Lowrance HDS Carbon, HDS Gen3, HDS Gen2 Touch, and Elite Ti fishfinder/chartplotters; and B&G Zeus³, Zeus², and Vulcan sailing chartplotters. Displays without built-in Wi-Fi require an additional WiFi-1 module. To enable the Link app, a free software update may be required for your display.

Link is designed to work with Android devices running Android 4.4 or above.
