DOCKCONTROL - Dockmate's advanced software program for customizing your engine & thruster controls!

Dockmate’s DockControl software offers the ultimate in remote control customizability. When combined with the DockControl software suite, Dockmate offers customers an off-the-shelf remote control solution that can be tailored to the real-world capabilities and needs of their vessel, as well as to their own boating style. DockControl gives the installer the ability to program the remote control by choosing any combination of engine(s) and thruster(s) activation(s). It allows for adjusting the sensitivity and behavior of the Dockmate TWIST joystick, choosing which functions are activated by each joystick direction and even adjust the size of the joystick’s dead-zone to avoid accidental activation. If a boat only has a single bow thruster, which is very common, the DockControl software can be programmed to safely “walk the boat” sideways directly towards the dock by programming the engine transmissions and throttle combined with the bow thruster – just as if the boat had a bow and stern thruster. In addition, if the boat has two non-proportional bow and stern thrusters, which is also very common, one thruster is oftentimes more dominant than the other, resulting in greater difficulty with moving the boat sideways and parallel to the dock. DockControl has the solution for this scenario. The settings can be customized so that a slight press on the joystick only engages one thruster and a harder push engages both thrusters. Engine control adjustments for the TWIST 3-axis joystick, such as delays and RPM levels, can be fine-tuned and adjusted as well. For more information on DockControl please visit www.dockmate.us.
