How does it work? How often can I see the data?
The Boatrax gateway is a physical box installed inside your boat’s helm. The Boatrax gateway reads all the data and messages generated by your boat every 10 seconds and transmits all that information through the cellular network to our secure cloud servers. Access the data in real-time through our free mobile app.

How is the device powered?
Our device is powered directly through the NMEA network.
Do I need technical knowledge to install?
No tech knowledge required! We built our device with you in mind. Simply plug and play into your boat’s NMEA network. No cable splicing, no headaches. Any questions - we are here to walk you through.
How do I connect other sensors that are not on NMEA?
Where should I mount the device and does antenna placement matter?
In most boat’s the NMEA network can be found inside the main console and that is usually the best place for our device. Just make sure the antennas are far away from interference and that the GPS antenna is facing towards the sky for optimal performance.
What is included with my purchase of the Boatrax device?
In the box you will receive: The Boatrax device, Cell antenna, GPS antenna, Sensor array, Installation Instructions. Download our free App and log into your account.
The device comes with a reset button. Simply insert the reset tool and make sure it clicks once. Wait 10 seconds and then click again to finish resetting the system.
The unit has three LED indicators. Power (Red), NMEA (Yellow), NET (Green).
- Red off means it may not be powered correctly. Please check all connections are secure and NMEA Tees are aligned. If the device is wired to draw power from the network then make sure the electronics or whichever breaker power the NMEA network has power. If everything looks good then proceed to reset the unit by clicking the reset button with a small paper clip twice.
- Yellow off means it is not getting any reading from the NMEA network. Proceed to check all connections are secure and NMEA Tees are aligned. Also make sure the NMEA network is powered (possibly through your electronics switch). If everything looks good, then proceed to reset the unit by clicking the reset button with a small paper clip twice.
- Green if off means it has lost connectivity and most likely an antenna issue. Confirm the antenna is attached correctly to the cell port and is clear of any possible interference. If after a few minutes the unit does not come back online, then proceed to reset the unit by clicking the reset button with a small paper clip twice.
