Well I shall ask Suzuki and post up an "official" answer - seems everywhere I look on the interweb I get a variety of answers

The cost of the NEMA network cable from Garmin is a daft price in the UK, but in the States it much less. Ive a mate going there soon so I shall get him to bring me back one.

The internet is not - unfortunately - the best place to look for this sort of answer.

Basically both Garmin 750 S and Suzuki DF175 are both NEMA compatible, and in very simple terms you will need some sort of interface box and wiring between the engine and the plotter. In very simple terms the Suzuki SDS system feeds data into the NEMA 2000 plotter.


I would note that the Lowrance and Simrad plotters will (usually) connect directly to the Suzuki units - Garmin do not.

The reason that you have found/been given more than one possible solution is that the model year of your DF175 determines how the wiring connection will work. This makes a significant difference, as the wiring will be different between the analogue and digital instrument models of the DF175. As a starting point, in order to get the right wiring solution we would need to know the engine model number.

Thanks for the engine numbers
I am over at Coniston Water in the Lakes for the next few days at Powerboat Records Week (which we sponsor), doing some high-speed stuff (and probably getting very cold) -
However I will get onto this later this week and hopefully give you a full answer

Thanks guys for the information - I will have to start saving for it then

Ive also found the NEMA garmin starter kit cable is quite expensive, but cheaper in the States.

Ive a friend who is going out there over Xmas, so I will task him with bringing one back, then start to put together the other bits I need over the holiday break.

Peter, I will wait for your confirmation, then start ordering bits. I need to know my fuel consumption before I start anything serious with the boat.

Cheers
