Good Suzuki dealer needed please.

Can anyone recommend a Suzuki dealer who can assist me as I try to get my Garmin to display engine info.

New Suzuki twin 175's - to - Garmin 750s

Im really only interested in fuel info, the standard revs and trim guages are fine.

But after a bit of reasearch it seems I may (or may not) just need a cable. Its all a bit confusing, so Im quite tempted to pay someone so my head stops hurting

That's sounds correct, just adding this option on Yamaha and raymarine plotter and told this is also just a link cable and will do same by switching screens or putting on face screen all engine revs, fuel etc

So, looks like I just need the Garmin NEMA starter kit then. This should plug into the engine and then the plotter. Garmin told me it should all just plug and play.

Mmmm, we will see.

So all I need to do is figure out where to plug it into the Suzuki, assuming the connectors are compatible, then feed it through from the engine to the plotter - hopefully that will be easy ?

Unless Suzuki have added direct N2K compatibility, you used to need a converter box which Lowrance made. Do a search on here for EP20 and Lowrance or look in the Suzuki accessories catalogue.

Ive been doing a bit of research and it just gets more confusing

Seems that I need the Garmin starter kit - which basically gives you the "network cableing", then I may or may not be able to plug this into the engine. Daft price in the UK - 85+, but about 45 from the states ??

I have to plug it into the diagnostic port on the engine, so the current guages remain working.

But, some connectors may not fit the Suzuki connectors ! Plus, as you say, I may need to have something else to get the engine to talk down the network.

You would thing a new Suzuki would be NEMA 2000 compatible though ?

I will ring another dealer and see if they actually have the answers - dammed if I can find anything on the internet that dosent leave me more confused.
