EVINRUDE E-LINK VIRTUAL DASHBOARD OFFERS DIRECT CONTROL OF ENGINE FEATURES FROM A MOBILE DEVICE

Sturtevant, Wis., June 27, 2016 – BRP (TSX:DOO), announced today the release of its virtual dashboard that provides the display and direct control of important engine features from a mobile device – the Evinrude E-Link. An innovative alternative to traditional marine instrumentation, E-Link shares critical E-TEC G2 engine data over a NMEA 2000 network via WiFi to any iOS or Android device, from anywhere on a boat.

Evinrude E-Link mirrors the data shown on Evinrude’s ICON Touch displays, giving users fingertip access to vital engine and vessel information, including:

Engine RPM, fuel flow, trim position and oil level, as well as fuel levels, battery voltage and water depth.

Two Trip Logs to assist boaters with fuel management by calculating distance traveled, fuel consumed and average and maximum speed.

An Eco page that allows boaters to achieve the best possible efficiency in different operating conditions by monitoring estimated range and average fuel use.

A Concierge page that includes links to the Evinrude “Find a Dealer” webpage as well as a, “Send Engine Data” option to forward engine data directly to a dealer or service team via email.

“Our development teams are focused on providing our customers with added convenience, control and value,” said Alain Villemure, vice-president and general manager of BRP’s Marine Propulsion Systems division. “Evinrude E-Link makes managing the most advanced engines on the market, Evinrude E-TEC G2, even easier. Now boaters can have all the information they need right in the palm of their hand.”

In addition to displaying data, Evinrude E-Link gives users remote control of Evinrude’s i-Trim intelligent trim system and Dynamic Power Steering feature. The device also is capable of initiating Evinrude E-TEC G2 “one touch” auto-winterization. Easy to install, it is fully customizable and can be set to five different languages – English, French, Spanish, German and Italian – and display data in metric, imperial, U.S. standard and nautical units of measure.

BRP’s Evinrude engine line up, from 3.5 to 300 HP, offers customers superior value across a full range of applications. Engines are available at authorized Evinrude dealerships worldwide.
