Evinrude Etec Gen 1 Setup
We are finishing up on the restoration of 20ft Mako with a 2007 175HP Evinrude Etec Gen 1.
I have a Garmin Echomap GPS and would like to tap into the outboards data most importantly for Fuel flow and RPM.
Can anyone link me to a product or outline the steps to set this up?
Also is there a marine grade display screen that is universal and will display engine management, tap into gps data, stereo and amplifier and can be linked via Bluetooth to your phone?
Looking for a clean dash setup with a single screen similar to what you see in the Teslas and new ev cars.
Well, I got access to the NMEA data in my 115 E-TEC with pleasing results:
But as I wrote, Evinrude is not very clear about how to do it and what you'll get. Here are some good alternate info sources:
As far as an all-one-gauge, I suggest checking Veratron, who are good at combining info like N2K, GPS, and analog inputs like some aspects of your E-TEC that aren't on N2K, like fuel tank level.
But a small MFD will likely do a better job with the N2K data and can also handle N2K audio control, which I don't think you'll find in a gauge.
Not sure that you can get to a single screen, but maybe close.
