GoFree vessel was introduced by Navico a couple of years ago. Recently the service has been getting more attention with Boatsetter.com using GoFree to allow its members to fully understand their boats location and condition. Boatsetter is a peer to peer boat renting portal, with over 4,000 boat owners in its program.
GoFree Vessel syncs trip photos with engine and navigational data. Want real-time location and status updates for your boat or fleet in one elegant interface? Get GoFree Vessel, an easy-to-use new system that provides 24/7 cloud-based vessel monitoring and trip-sharing via PC, tablet and smartphone. The service’s unique TripReplay feature synchronizes photos, engine-performance data and navigational data from all your adventures on the water.
“Navico’s GoFree Connected Vessel concept is not just important because it will be marketed and serviced worldwide, but also because the development team took the time to think out a truly comprehensive system that can potentially serve a wide variety of boaters in multiple ways. …” says the influential marine-industry writer Ben Ellison of Panbo, in one early review. “When you think about it, there are so many benefits possible when you connect lots of boat sensing with Internet cloud data storage and smart software. I know that the GoFree developers have thought about it a lot.”
