Loss of SmartGuage Data

While out in the swell, and no I wasn't helming, the vibration finally got to the connector at the back of my rev counter and it fell off completely. Tacho not found error, no speed info.

Engine worked fine, no problems. Powered into Lymington without any hassles.

Paul (Timboli) got the console up, replugged it in, no hassles.

BUT, I wonder what would have happened if it were a Verado????

The same thing will happen, you will loose your gauge. The engine will carry on working just fine.
