GEC introduces new Aqua Map update

Aqua Map

May 23, 2024

GEC srl is pleased to announce the launch of one of the most significant updates for its popular product, Aqua Map. This update marks a very important step forward, with a series of new features and improvements designed to make the user experience even more intuitive and rewarding.

Among the many updates, two key elements stand out:

A refined new User Interface designed to enhance the app’s usability with a clearer and more intuitive design. Through a revised layout and improved data visibility, the navigation experience becomes smoother and more user-friendly. Careful attention has been paid to colors and spacing to ensure a clean and modern appearance, while the ability to customize remains at the core of our user experience. Aqua Map now offers a consistent look across both Android and iOS platforms.

Another significant new feature has been implemented to make the integration experience with onboard instrumentation even more complete: Autopilot connection feature. Recognizing the importance of continuous improvement, Aqua Map is releasing Autopilot connection as a BETA feature. This will allow users to test the benefits of the feature while providing Aqua Map with valuable feedback for further refinement. Note: Autopilot connection beta is launching first on iOS, with Android to follow shortly.

“Aqua Map has not changed radically; we have listened carefully to the requests of our users, who are the real driving force behind this project.” Says Enrico Valle, CEO and Co-founder of GEC.

“Maintaining our commitment to safety and innovation, we are confident that this update will greatly benefit our loyal users and attract even more new users, contributing to the growth of our community.”

While Canadians may have been slower to warm to pontoon boats than our southern neighbours, that’s definitely changed as we see more of them gracing our waters every year. The latest data shows pontoon boats now represent around 30% of all new boats sold in Canada and it’s easy to understand why – with their interior space and tremendous versatility, pontoons are near-perfect family runabouts.

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
