Navico partners with Vodafone to boost GoFree connectivity


NAVICO announced today that it is working with Vodafone to bring global connectivity to its GoFree product suite.

Using the Vodafone Global Internet of Things (IoT) SIM, GoFree can provide boaters, fleet managers, and service technicians with the ability to monitor, log, transmit and report important vessel information in real-time.

With the connectivity, GoFree Track can track critical vessel information like engine hours, battery status, oil pressure, coolant temperature, fuel consumption, and more.

By tracking these on-board assets, boaters can instantly access details of potential mechanical problems and share them with technicians to service the specific area in need.

Vodafone’s IoT technology allows GoFree Track to monitor bilge levels and alarms letting boaters know if the vessel is taking on water and allowing them to react accordingly, as well as notifying them when there is loss of shore power, which can drain batteries and potentially damage onboard systems that are running.

All data collected is transmitted back to the GoFree Vessel online module for immediate viewing, giving consumers better access and control over vessel details.

GoFree Track is offered with a variety of communication options including the Track-WiFi or Track-CellFi, which leverages Vodafone’s Global SIM to connect users to 2G or 3G networks throughout the world.

Navico is a leading worldwide marine electronics company that includes brands like Lowrance and Simrad. For more information head to
