Here are some screen shots of the new Garmin 5000 series touch-screen chartplotters. They are both NMEA 183 and 2000 compliant. Notice the engine gauge screen.

More to come.

Tom--Give us some details about the interface between the display device and the engine instrumentation. Has GARMIN joined the move to NMEA-2000 vessel networking?

Jim, you can view a Garmin Press release on the 4000 series here:
http://www.garmin.com/pressroom/marine/111306b.html
They are NMEA 2000 certified IIRC.
Sorry, no time to re-read the article to be sure.

Yiddil: about the same price as past high-end Garmins.

I'm still trying to get the engine monitoring/NMEA 2000 configuration/capability sheet. Will let you know when I do.

Chuck, Yep thats about right.........They are fantastic units, most all of them...For Das Boat, I got a 188C and have never looked back...but when they came out they were like pretty expensive and as time went on you could get one for half the price...LIke someone said, its a revolviing door and short life span for these units as they keep coming back with better every year:)

I still love the 188C, it has everything I use and then some....My Best, The Yiddil

And I still use my monochrome 162. The only newfangled
feature I wish I had is a faster update rate when zoomed in
to 30' and trying to drill a small patch of sand with the
anchor.
