Default Smartcraft, Raceview, ect... ???

OK guys ... all the new stuff with Merc power has the Smartcraft or Raceview or whatever version ..... Some of you guys have had experience LOOKING at these while underway. How are they to actually USE ? Can you see the functions on the screen in the sun ? What have your experiences been so far . Need feed back ... all this new stuff makes me nervous !

Thanks in advance !

I have smartcraft in my boat and I call it DumbCraft........because some of the gauges work some of the time and then they switch off so the others that were working now don't work and the the one that were working now don't. One of the experts say...it must be a ground................YEA ...SURE

mwdill I like the look of that system. I've been thinking along those lines fro next winter. Can they add the fuel consumption data that comes from the ecu? How pricey? Are special senders required?

I'll read lit later but these questions crossed my mind right now.

THanks

Merc "requires" at least one of these moniters with the new 850's/1075's .

Not sure about the 525's ? Bet they don't let ya pic brand X !

I am presently installing the Sc1000 monitors. Waiting on Livorsi to send us the correct wiring harnesses.
I should hopefully have an update after the Poker Run this weekend.

right now you have to tie in to the fuel pres.
but they are coming out with an upgrade soon that will show consumpsion.
price retail is 1700.00$ -2200.00$ for the mxl pro.
you will need senders for whatever you are going to monitor,they have those as well , but im thinking we might be able to tie into the existing wires,
are your motors efi's?
