Next I installed instead of the quite simple standard TACH + trim gauge the new ICON Pro gauges - the TACHO / SPEEDO / fuel / water pressure / trim .
They provide a maximum of information about motor / fuel / trip etc .. it works over NMEA 200 and can be displayed also on the plotter .
What I do not like - the ETEC 90 is not FULLY able to use the full range of NMEA advantage !
The trim sensor works analog and cannot be used with the ICON gauges .. so the analog gauge remains in the panel but requires a separate harness (((
Furthermore I wanted to have the water pressure kit which is damn expensive . I asked the dealer particularly for this kit and whether it can be used on the 90 . He said with such a self confidence that from the ETEC 40 it works that I had no doubts - until I tried to install it and found on ETEC owner forum that it DOES NOT ..
the other picture is not a turning signal switch
It is a Teleflex trim switch which I like very much since I was once in a heavy sea and was afraid to tak emy hand off the steering wheel to trim the motor
Furthermore I installed the GARMIN 720s - and with the Blue chart g2 vision charts it REALLY impressed me !
On the right side of the plotter is the place where I will install the hand held radio . There it is the easiest place to access it .
