Suzuki new digital gauges

Hi to all.
Those are new kind of digital gauges for suzuki outborad.
The news is that with the new EP20 interface for the engine series from df40 to df140 now is possible to plug nmea2000 gauges.
The interface EP20 (electronic probe) plug in the pc connection (the same of diagnosis) read the data from the outboard and convert the information in nmea2000 format.

The data for the gauges will be : fuel injected, engine temperature, oil temperature, oil pressure, water pressure, various alarms, athmosferic pressure, trim...


I have a suzuki df115 year 2002 and i asked for this set up.

The sales man told me:
"It will work for you so you can use the new gauges, however we have been talking to the engineers here at the Miami Boat Show and they say there may be some limited functions on models built before 2004.
This may cause some engine warning systems not to function properly, so you may want to keep your monitor gauge system in place."

What this mean?
Someone of you know something about?

Ps. Sorry for my English

I see Lowrance is supplying these with the old network connectors. Iíve been told that they are redoing this and will be using the new standard. So if you are looking to dump a bunch of money into it I would wait a couple months and get the new industry standard connector. Iím just hoping they will continue to support their old one. Knowing Lowrance probably not. They will find a way to milk their customers out of more money to fix a problem they created. With the bitching done I do love my unit Iím just disappointed in there lack of willingness to stand behind their product.

Lowrance will be switching from Blue connectors to Red connectors for the new 2007 model units. The Red ones are Molex Micro C type connectors the official plug used in NMEA2K networks and hence the Lowrance ones will now connect straight to other manufacturers NMEA2K devices such as Maretron and Airmar equipment. The Blue network will stilll be supported and adaptor cables will be available to convert from blue to red.

Presumably this will also work on the Johnson 140 4/? If so, any ideas how much it costs? Looks pretty cool....

maybe will work. it is the same engine. It seems there are some problems for older engine.

The cable cost about 100$
The small gauge about 150$ or the big gauge about 250$.
And add power cable, connector, gps connector ecc ...
