Perfect Pull App for IPhone

Recommended Posts

bcf2003

So I found out through a friend of mine that just toured the plant, that the 2013 lineup is gonna be able to connect to your phone via Bluetooth. Download the app, set your ballast options, wedge setting, and speed; it connects to your phone through the bluetooth and sets the boat up specifically for you! Soo amazing. Now I just need to find an app that puts the kind of money needed to buy a new 2013, right in my pocket! Yes please!!

I knew it was only a matter of time. I've been writing some Android apps to control LED's wirelessly and figured sooner or later Malibu would integrate an app alongside the Malivue. Pretty cool IMO. :) I love nerd stuff. :)

Sweet, because the iPod interface works so flawlessly, this should have no issues at all!

I agree with Martin. It was only a matter of time. You can crank, shut down, locate and set your radio station the new Chevys with your phone, why shouldnt you be able to adjust your ballast and control your stereo in your boat?

I wish they would pull the screen off the malivue and just use and ipad or something. When you buy a tournament bass boat, they don't usually come with the electronics; they come with a place to put aftermarket electronics.

I wish Malibu would give us a hole the size of an ipad with a connection to the computer in lieu of their screens. I'd trust replacing an ipad every couple of years over trusting the screens they put in the boat for 10 years.

Next you'll be able to save an image taken from your tower camera of the wake at every setting to your app, so when you open the app, you just click the wake picture you want and presto it appears behind your boat. If not, maybe I should add that feature :) I wonder if Malibu would publicize their api for us iOS developers to write our own :)

The only benefit I can see to this is if you go on other people's boats often as if you ride on your own boat, you'd have your own presets. While it sounds cool, bluetooth to work you typically have to "register" or "connect" your iphone to the vehicle / boat for the bluetooth connection to be made. This is typically a process in and of itself instead of just saying "fill er up" or "half full".

Not sure this provides real value other than "bling factor".

Edit: I'm not trying to rain on anyone's parade. It's a neat idea. I'm just wondering if there is a specific use case this fills that doesn't exist today.

This is cool - is bluetooth standard? Or do you have to buy an upgrade?

I have been reading that the Tiges also have this for 2013

I don't know if the perfect pull is worth $250 but I might pay that for the side benefit... (from thtrog's link)

Streaming music to the boat’s audio system AUX input is an additional benefit of the Mobile Device Gateway

Has anyone actually used this app? for the rider presets that is?

Pretty much my thoughts. I guess if you had a regular crew it would save a little time between sets.

Anyone ever able to get this to work? i have the option turned on in my settings (2016 23LSV), and it says that it sees my phone, but the phone says it is only connected to 'ViperII', not the common name ('Malibu Boat') listed in the settings. the mobile app is never able to find the boat.

Plus, when i try to go to www.perfect-pull.com, the web page is dead, so i am not able to find any support

Same on my '14.  I'm seeing a trend.
