ICOM gages interface with my wellcraft

I have two new 300's we put on my 2002 Wellcraft 290 coastal.  We changed out the gages and installed the ICOM gages, not the ICOM control but three gages.  I had two Ficht 250's on it previsouly.  Was wondering about hooking up the depth/speed transducer and level sensors in the two oil tanks.   Any experince with the interface required on these?


Thanks,  Mike

The two level sensors should not be a probleml. The speed/depth  transducer would have to be acertified NMEA2000 component to network into the system, which it probably is not..
