I just installed a BoatCommand Connect on our boat. Too early to tell, but the system is super simple to install and use, and yet has all the features I need, for a very reasonable price
. $300 plus $80/year to monitor. It uses the cellular network, monitors GPS
(ensures boat stays within a radius), two battery
banks, two bilge pumps, shore power
. It can also monitor temperature, motion inside the boat, and turn on/off up to 3 relays, but I did not use any of these features. It has apps for iOS and android, but you can do all the management from a web site and it texts my cell phone
when anything goes wrong. You can go to boatcommand.com and create an account to get a taste for what you'd see.
