Nmea fish finder

I just got a Garmin 93sv fish finder and am ready to install it. I'm a rookie when it comes to the whole nmea network thing so please help me out if you can. I assume that since I'm running my 2013 150hp with icon that I can patch into this existing network with the fish finder? Can this be done at one of the two icon network hubs on the boat already? I assume this will supply power to the finder as well as communication with the engine for more detailed information than the gages offer?

Re: Nmea fish finder

Refer to your Garmin instruction manual or contact Garmin support for specific questions on the product and its installation.


Normal installation of a NMEA2000 component is accomplished by inserting a Tee-fitting in the network backbone cable and fastening the item's cable to the middle connector of the Tee.


The following links may help explain  NMEA2000 networking
