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?
