attention northstar f210 fuel computer owners....

Hi all,

just got mine and am about to fit it but i have a question. The manual says that you should connect it directly to the battery, which would mean it is on ALL of the time. I would prefer to wire it into the ignition system so it is only on when the ignition is on. Does anybody know if it has a memory? I.e if i wire it into the ignition will it remember how much fuel i have left when i next use the boat?

Thanks....

P.S i bought mine from www.rocktheboataudio.com they are dead cheap, their website handles international orders and they ship by USPS so shipping was about 15! You get full tracking info when they dispatch it, i got it 4 days after i ordered! Shame i got done for tax though by customs. O well, still well under half the ptice of if i bought it in the good old UK!

I have an Evinrude fuel meter connected to the ignition switch.
The memory keeps the values.

Almost all fuel meters have the same electronics inside.

I think it's the same as the Navman and mine is connected to ignition - that way you get engine hours when it's running as well.
