That wasn't really a fair statement I suppose. The merc monitor will export all the available data from the engine(s). How much you see and how it's displayed is down to the mfd obviously. What annoyed me about the merc monitor was the info displayed on itself. Even though I bought the multiple engine version, you have to select one engine or the other as the master and the monitor only displays data from that engine.
I had a SC1000 speedo in place before I replaced with the merc monitor, along with 2 SC1000 tachometers. Normally when underway I'd have rpm's displayed on the tachometers and trim of both engines on the speedo. Now I can only see the trim of one engine on the merc monitor so I use it to show trip data instead but have to scroll through the screens on the tachometers to get trim values which really annoys me, I want to see trim all the time.
