Tach accuracy

 How accurate would the tach on lorance elite ti powered thru nmea network ?  Would it be more accurate than my old analog omc gauge .   I’m still trying to sort out my prop .  I’m running a 17 aluminum Evinrude prop 2 holes up and still only turning 5200.  So  first I need to know is tach accuracy.

The NMEA rpm data will be more accurate than your analog gauge.

Re: Tach accuracy

Yes, the NMEA2000 data is direct from the EMM and is the most accurate, as that is the data that the onboard computer (EMM) uses for its calculations and output signals to the ignition system and fuel injectors.
