Boat Insurance Premium CreditsOctober 19, 2012 by
Mercury Marine has a great new feature now available on certain models called the TDS (Theft Deterrent System) that is not only a GPS tracking system to locate the vessel if it is stolen, but can also diagnoses engine problems, monitors battery strength, has the "geo-fence" feature to notify the vessel owner if it moves outside a designated area, and can also lock down the engines from full use if the key fob is missing (idle only). Very cool - Check out the link. Many boat insurance companies are now offering premium discounts for approved GPS tracking device systems like the Mercury TDS system. Hopefully other manufactures will also follow suit. Please contact your agent at Charter Lakes Marine Insurance for more details on available insurance discounts.
