Boat Fix Introduces Industry-Breaking App
Southport, Conn. – Boat Fix, a recreational boating telematics company that provides customized solutions for the boating industry through a combination of remote monitoring, GPS tracking, and sophisticated geofencing – uniquely backed by 24/7 live customer support — announced today its upgraded, easy to use Boat Fix Pro mobile application. Already enjoyed by thousands of users, the Boat Fix Pro app is uniquely designed to give users a safer, more secure and stress-free boating experience.
“Every week, we focus on how Boat Fix can provide a better boating experience for the boat operator and their family,” said Alastair Crawford, Founder, Boat Fix. “Backed by around-the-clock remote monitoring and GPS tracking and the industry’s first 24/7 Command & Control Center, users of our new app can have much needed peace of mind and focus on what is really important, having fun on the water while making sound safety decisions.”
Ground-breaking features that the Boat Fix Pro app provides include updated NOAA charts offering navigational marks and depths, as opposed to the industry standard of Google Earth maps.
Additionally, Boat Fix has created automatic weather warning pop-ups at the actual location of where the boat is located, including Small Craft Advisories, dense fog and severe thunderstorm with lightning advisories, as well as storm and hurricane warnings.
The Status page not only gives the boat owner an immediate remote overview check of the boats health, but also provides an anti-theft and unauthorized use protection with its geofenced security capabilities, regardless of whether the boat is on water or on a trailer. By toggling the Protect Mode option, a 100-yard geofence is activated and if unauthorized users breach the area, the boat owner will receive a telephone call within seconds.
The remote monitoring of battery voltage is taken to a new industry standard through three separate alarms; ultra-low, low-, and now high-voltage where that critical issue can lead to not only rapid degradation of battery life, but ultimately fire and explosion.
The new Boat Fix app has introduced safety checklists of US Coast Guard required equipment and will even send users calendar reminders for when to replace fire extinguishers and flares and ensure that the correct number of lifejackets are onboard.
Weather is always a crucial safety decision to be made before casting off. With the new Boat Fix Pro app, boat owners can get a real time update on weather conditions of where the boat is located, including vital factors such as wave height, visibility, weather and wind strength – all of which can determine whether that family trip should be made before leaving home. Current weather is backed up on the app with a seven-day weather forecast.
Similar to aviation pre take off check lists, the new Boat Fix Pro app provides essential items and tasks to check before leaving the dock. On safe return, there are “On Return” checks to ensure that the boat is left secure, safe and ready prior to the next trip.
The status of the vessel is monitored by the Boat Fix 24/7 Command & Control Center and in case of any problem or emergency, the Contact button immediately connects users to the Boat Fix team of advisors who answer every call live and in seconds.
Leveraging the latest in artificial intelligence, users of the Boat Fix Pro app can communicate with the 24/7 Boat Fix team at a touch of a button, through voice, text, email, or two-way video chat to answer questions and diagnose issues on the water. Every call is answered in seconds, in person, by courteous, trained professional ready and willing to help.
The 24/7 mechanical helpline, staffed with industry professionals, ensures boaters have immediate technical assistance over the phone for engine or other breakdown issues on the water. The 24/7 Boat Fix Command & Control Center also monitors unauthorized use and boat-theft prevention with direct lines to law enforcement.
