Marine Electronics Industry Leader Navico Engages CalAmp to Deliver Optimized Device to Power GoFree Connected Vessel System for Onboard Engines, Sensors and Navigation Data

 CalAmp (NASDAQ: CAMP), a leading provider of wireless products, services and solutions, today announced Navico has selected CalAmp’s enhanced LMU-4530™ telematics device to support Navicos new cloud-enabled GoFree™ Connected Vessel program to monitor onboard engine, sensor and navigation data. CalAmp’s device management and maintenance software platform, PULS(Provisioning/Programming, Update and Logistical System), has also been customized to support Navicos over-the-air device management and firmware updates for vessels in port or at sea.


CalAmps LMU-4530 and extensive development resources are helping to power Navicos GoFree Connected Vessel program to deliver vessel tracking, marine engine diagnostics and a comprehensive trip management program, said Phil Gaynor, Senior Telematics Product Manager at Navico. Navicos GoFree program also includes a dynamic sonar information product that enables crews to contribute to and share cloud-based marine cartographic data to locate prime fishing locations.


With cellular, satellite, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity options, the rugged, weather-resistant LMU-4530 is ideal for an array of marine applications,” said Justin Schmid, Senior Vice President and General Manager of CalAmp’s Telematics Systems businessEquipped with actionable data, vessel operators can make more informed decisions about routes, navigation and shipboard maintenance.”
