Evinrude iCommand - which 500 plotter to accompany?

I've just bought a 2009 Evinrude 200 HO with 2 of the 3.5" iCommand gauges and a Lowrance GPS antenna. What chartplotters at around the 500 mark are compatible with this? It's for my race boat so would be useful to have things like water pressure and temp on the plotter for my navigator to worry about, while I have revs, trim and speed on the gauges my side.

Any recommendations?

For starters the plotter needs to be NMEA2000 compliant. Lowrance probably offer the best integration as they were leaders in developing N2K & the Evinrude gauges are rebadged lowrance units. The Lowrance route also allows you to upgrade the i-command gauge firmware via the Lowrance plotter. To get water pressure you will need to add a water pressure sensor to your engine if it hasn't got one already, they don't come as standard. A memory module will give you the full fuel manager functions.

Great thanks Dave. Any idea of the price of a pressure sensor? I'm running a hydraulic lifter with a lot of travel so it's very important I know, especially during the initial testing and set up of the rig

if that includes the relevant mapping for the Channel Islands and French north coast then no, not better than that... Just found out they're an extra 179!
