Stay Safe & Grow Your Business with WAIV

Our system will give provide the support you need to stay on top of your business. It will improve your customer experience, keep your inventory safe, and protect your business from risks that come with running a boat rental operation. We continuously improve our products and software, with the goal of helping you easily run and grow your boat rental business.


Our trackers dynamically adjusts the update rate based on motion, speed, change of direction, proximity to geofences, and intelligent predictions of the vessel’s movement.  

A vessel at high speed may update as often as once every 30 seconds, an industry-leading update rate. 

On the other hand,  if a boat moves at a very slow pace without changing bearing, the update rate is much lower. This saves you from having to sift through thousands of unnecessary GPS points to find the GPS data that you are looking for. Our customers are working in a fast paced environment and needs to get to the information they need very quickly. Our intelligent system lets them do just that.

Our generous return policy allows you to try WAIV with no risk and receive a full return if you are not happy with the trackers for any reason. Please follow this link for full details.

Many of our customers run seasonal operations and our pricing plans are tailored to their needs. We offer different subscription levels to accommodate for the variations in season, and the subscription can be adjusted from month to month. Please review our product page for pricing details.

The WAIV SoundAlertSystem is designed for precisely that.

Based on geo-fences that you can draw with your finger on a mobile phone, the WAIV device will emit a loud sound whenever a driver is exceeding the set speed limit or enters a no-go zone.

This is a safe, yet very effective way to keep renters within the speed limit.

And the sound alerts work even if the boat is outside mobile coverage area. 

Our trackers work in almost every country in the world. Please contact us for information regarding the specific country you operate in.
