Best Vessel Monitoring Systems for 2021

Long gone are the days when you had to make an educated guess about how some onboard systems were performing and whether that cranky bilge pump was heading for a total meltdown. Today’s vessel monitoring systems report on just about everything that involves mechanical, electrical, electronic and safety equipment. Some of those systems allow you to control equipment as well or create geofences for security purposes. Below are some of the best that monitor multiple functions. We’ll tell you about more next week.

This is part of an exercise Marine Electronics Journal does every year in our Buyers’ Guide. It works like this: We ask the top manufacturers to identify the one model they produce in a particular category (17 in all) that they consider to be their Best & Brightest—not necessarily the most technically advanced or newest but rather the one they rate highest in the product line for one reason or another. Could be the functions and features it offers, or maybe it breaks new ground in maximizing effectiveness or utility, or maybe it’s the most popular as measured by sales to boaters. Over the past couple of weeks, we rolled out several satellite compasses that manufacturers told us about.

Garmin OnDeck

Track, monitor and control switches on your boat from anywhere with the Garmin OnDeck system, a fully integrated remote connectivity solution. The OnDeck hub allows you to monitor your boat’s battery status, bilge activity, security sensors, GPS location and more. Set up alarm notifications in the ActiveCaptain app to get updates of any changes that may threaten your boat. When you’re ready for a day on the water, OnDeck allows you to turn on selected switches remotely. The ActiveCaptain app keeps you connected to your vessel as the GTB 10 hub collects and stores data. The system consists of the GTB 10 OnDeck Hub, door sensor, temperature sensor, shore power sensor and relay switch. A subscription is required.
