Dockmate: Fingertip Docking

Dockmate is a wireless control system that allows the skipper to control the boat from anyplace on board — helm, bow, stern, midship. About the size of a large cellphone, the wireless controller has a range of 150 feet and allows the user to operate bow and stern thrusters, main engines, even the horn and windlass. Compatible with most electronically controlled engines, the system is available in four models: Single, Twin, Twist 3-axis joystick with proportional control, and Twist IPS for POD drives such as the Volvo IPS.
