Default New VesselView 7 and 4 software update v3.0

Now Mercury has published the VesselView 4 & 7 v3.0 software for download - and even promise almost twice a year updates !

VV7 release notes:

• Setup wizard major redesign – now includes engine specific setup
• Settings menu reorganization which makes operation more intuitive
• Engine hours displayed on System scan screen – with 5 digit capability
• Digital values on pressure and temperature indications
• Trim and trailer position indication provided (0-10-25)
• Data boxes now support three and four engines
• Engine load added to data box options for diesel engines
• NMEA2K fuel level sensors – acquires total fuel capacity from sensor Enhancements
• Skyhook response level added for Joystick Piloting for Outboards (JPO)
• Default tank capacity to zero once arrowed past max on VV 4
• Total tank capacity added to oil tank • Removed “V” on battery voltage screen
• Finnish language translations revised
• Scroller bar items reorganized which makes operation more intuitive
• Graph warnings only trigger by fault flags – not by exceeding limit set points (which are engine specific and still user configurable)
• Improved operating range graphics on bar graphs
• Bar graphs start at minimum value (found in limits), no longer start at 0
• 7 function warnings on N2K bus – includes Water in Fuel (WIF) fix
• Troll – “ON” has been replaced by “ENABLE”
• Updated manuals – Quick Start Guide and Owner’s Manuals now available electronically: www.mercurymarine.com/vesselview
• Consumer software downloads – Mercury now offers VesselView software upgrades (approximately twice a year) that the end user can install

More on Mercury and my VesselView Post

You can download from Mercury - put on an MicroSD card - plug in to VV4 or VV7 - and update.

Previous version was v. 2.4.something.... as far as I remember.

Now if they had the option to get rid of those stupid bar graphs it might be useful. Why do they think it is necessary to take up at least half the screen with the RPM graph

Is that a VV4 or VV7 - or the older non-touch VV? If it is the older non-touch then it is a no-go. That does not get software updates any longer I think.

If it is a VV4 or VV7 then it should upgrade even from older versions. But it might be good to do a backup of settings - and then do a factory reset - and then import the settings again.

I do agree there is quite a bit of "fancy" wasting valuable space I miss the table from the old VesselView that shows all the important engine parameters on one screen... If you read my VesselView post I have a long list of suggestion for future features...

I think it's great if that is what you are looking for even if it is totally useless (just a fancy idiot light) but at least give us the option to change to all digital with all the important info on one screen like most of the other displays out there.

I'm looking for something for my new build but these are useless for a diesel
