Dockmate, the popular wireless control system that lets skippers remotely control their engines and other systems, now connects directly to Volvo Penta’s EVC-E and EVC-2 electronic vessel controls.

Dockmate integrates with Volvo’s line of drive-by-wire steering systems including IPS, Aquamatic and Inboard systems, and provides fingertip control over single or twin engines, gearboxes and throttle controls, bow and stern thrusters, anchor winches – even the ship’s horn.

The new charging pad wirelessly charges the Dockmate Twist remote, as well as later model Samsung and Apple phones.

With Dockmate, skippers are no longer confined to their helm station. Instead, the wireless remote enables them to move around their vessel for the best vantage point and remain in complete control. Dockmate comes with a three-year warranty and the ability to add functions as they become available.
