The Link app gives you remote control of wirelessly connected Simrad, Lowrance, or B&G multifunction displays from your smartphone or tablet. Link lets you select any wirelessly connected 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, NSS7/8/12*, and GO series displays; Lowrance HDS Carbon, HDS Gen3, HDS Gen2 Touch*, HDS Gen2**, and Elite Ti fishfinder/chartplotters; and B&G Zeus³, Zeus², Zeus Touch*, and Vulcan sailing chartplotters. Displays without built-in wireless connectivity require an additional WIFI-1 module. To enable the Link app, a free software update may be required for your display.
Link works with the Apple iPhone 5s and later devices running iOS 9 or above.
* Mirroring only. ** View only.
Fixed the Mirroring and Remote Control experience. Chart-plotters are now mirrored in fullscreen once again.
Added support for Local Network Access permissions. Link will now request access to your local network to communicate with your Marine devices, enabling devices to be automatically discovered and used by the apps features.
Ratings and Reviews
No rotation on IPhone
The screen will not rotate on my iPhone. The Link also starts to log off and has problems reconnecting.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your comment and feedback. We are aware of the issues and we are working on a fix.
Ok, but missing features
This app is working great, but it should really be a feature granting access to control the autopilot. This is disabled for security’s reasons and this might sound logical. But to be honest, this can also be opposite. Should be a choice made by the captain.
No full screen after update
After the latest update the map doesn't open inn full screen on iPad when using the iPad as remote for my Lowrance Ti 9, only a small box same size as the login page.
