1996 Johnson 175 Fast Strike NMEA Converter

Does anyone have any experience setting up a NMEA conversion to this motor? Thanks!

No Can Do on that motor, only on later model E-TEC outboards have NMEA2000 capabilities.

 

Perhaps some company may make some type of converter box but that would be fairly expensive plus that motor does not have a computer to monitor and "feed" the network any data.

Thanks for the fast reply.

 

What about the Noland RS11 or the Actisense EMU? Any hope there?

 

 
Is there a place I can find a list of what information is available from the engine?

 Just taking a quick look it appears that you would be in for laying out a large expense along with spending a lot of time working things out only to have something that your motor cannot give as it does not have  electronic sensors or an ECU to send data. It only uses on-off switches.

 

If you decide to go ahead with the project. Please take pictures and videos, keep tabs on expenses and your time in hours that you spent, and a list of what few pieces of information you can display on your dash. 

 

We wish you well.
