It is yes, currently the unit displays revs, trim, hours, voltage and overheat warning.

From my limited knowledge it's about as much as we can get out of the early 90's engine.

An NMEA 2K MFD will hook into the same network the Raymarine will, and then you have dedicated display of whatever you like - e.g Depth - and keeps some clutter off your plotter screen.

Or just fit the plotter over the hole?
