No, but I did use it to try and save 15% on my insurance!

System view or Northstar are not now the only option - with Mercmonitor you can plug in any NMEA 2000 compliant GPS - in simple terms this means that all of the touchscreen Garmins will display the engine data on the screens - I doubt it will give you a slip reading, but it will give you all of the fluids levels and temps along with fuel to waypoint information.

Hope that is of interest?

If anyone is interested I can convert old style motors to display this date. I have tested it a bit and it works very well.

Seriously, I do not think this is possible can you explain how this is possible and projected cost. I have several friends that would love to have the Smartcraft/Vesselview unit on their respective older boats.

Jon,

According to Mercury "All Mercruiser MPI (multi-port fuel-injected engines) Sterndrive, Inboard, and Tow Sports models with serial number 0M300000 and higher are compatible with SmartCraft instrumentation systems."

As an example my 2004 350magMPI S/N:0M689xxx, can be converted, that is clear, but are you saying you can get SmartCraft to work on older motors?

I have a Garming 4208. Is there a way to get the data to my Garmin?

I dont have any more dash space, can the Garmin be my monitor?

Did you ever list these for sale? I might be interested.

Bump for the same question. Thinking my winter project is going to be a new dash. I want to trash all the gauges and start from scratch. Debating between a single screen that can handle GPS and smartcraft info and two screens. Anybody?

It is great.........

I have the same problem with my 08-42' 700 boat. Tachs and speedo read different than race view. Which is correct, and is there a fix to bring all together for accuracy?

The digital smart craft is what everything is tied too, as far as rpm limiters, and warnings. I would put more faith in that being accurate, than the analog gauges.
Be carefull scrolling through the pages that you dont activate this:
