Yamaha Leads the Way With Groundbreaking New Outboard App
by Capt. Ted Lund
Yamaha, the world’s leading outboard motor manufacturer, has done it again, updating its smart phone app designed to help boaters get the most out of their best-in-class outboard power plants.
The latest version is available to users of the iPhone®, iPad® and iPod® touch at the iTunes® Store, free of charge. Android™ users may download their version of the app from Google Play™.
The app includes four main categories of information: My Yamaha, Dealers, Performance Bulletins and Stay Hooked. In the My Yamaha section, boat owners may register and keep track of outboards, with up-to-date warranty information such as the number of days left on standard and extended limited warranties, as well as your engines registered dealer.
The Dealers section includes a dealer locator and mapping system that automatically uses your current location to find the nearest Authorized Yamaha Outboard Dealer. It also offers the information in a variety of mapping formats including Map view, Satellite view, Hybrid view and List View complete with contact information and driving directions.
Looking to purchase a new boat and/or motor? Yamaha has loaded the app with an extensive collection of performance bulletins for a wide range of boat styles from leading marine manufacturers. Each bulletin includes performance information like MPH, GPH and MPG at standardized RPMs. They also provide valuable information such as engine mounting heights, test loads and preferred prop options.
The Stay Hooked section of the app gives boaters access to Yamaha’s extensive collection of news, tips and videos in one easy location. Users can also check out the latest in sales promotions in this section.
