Nmea converters

I currently have a chart plotter and radio that use 0183 nmea that works fine ,Iam about to upgrade my engine to an Evinrude 115 ho which has nmea 2000 as standard and have been told this can display engine info etc onto my plotter.i have found a range of units on the net but was interested to find out if anyone was using them and how well do they work.

Thanks

Look for something called an actisense, that will convert the signals

You will need a plotter that can take NMEA2000. A converter will be no good as NMEA0183 does not understand engine data. You can keep your 0183 devices as most N2K plotters can work with both types.

Is the Evinrude 115 a new one ? If so it should come with a pair of gauages that have digital displays that can be set up to show loads of data options. Yes you can also hook the NMEA into a potter as well and use this to display additional data, all you will need is a compatible plotter and then run an NMEA cable from the plotter to your NMEA T connector BUS.

The Plotter will need to have an NMEA 2000 connection

Hi all
yes it will be brand new just about to order it, but I wanted to sort out all the options first.will probably stick with one gauge at the moment and rearrange the consul later in the year and upgrade plotter.

Thanks for the replies
