The device our Dockmate® remotes talk to. The Receiver translates the commands given through the remote and relays them to your boat’s controls. The Receiver is in essence the link between the Dockmate® remote and your boat.
If you want more information about Dockmate in general or specifically for you boat, the links below should provide you with the information you are seeking. If not, feel free to contact us.
When using a Dockmate® remote, that was charged to 100%, it takes up to 3 hours of constant use (remote actively communicating with the Receiver) to deplete the battery. This translates to a few very difficult and/or long docking manoeuvres, or lasts at least 15 docking manoeuvres of approximately 10 minutes.
During our test charging a Dockmate® remote from empty to completely full takes up to 3 hours. In practice we’ve observed a typical charging time for a Dockmate® remote of 20 to 40 min. For boaters using our latest Dockmate® Cradle, their Dockmate® remote is virtually always charged up and ready for use.
