Hi Guys. Firstly thanks for all the info on this forum, been quite handy to me recently! Secondly, I have just bought a Navman 8084 (Northstar M84) and have it all hooked up. I was wondering if there was any such thing as an NMEA rev sensor so that I can display the revs on the 8084? I have a Tohatsu 140 two-stroke outboard 2003 model if that makes any difference!

Many thanks in advance! --Steve

MARETRON makes an EMS100 convertor device which can be connected to a NMEA-2000 digital network and also to your engine's normal analogue signals. However, it does not list your engine as one of the supported models.

I also suspect the cost of the EMS100 may not be attractive for your application.

Thanks for that Jimh

I apologise, i thought i had read that the Chartplotter i had was nmea2000 however its only nmea 0183 compatible!

however you have led me in a better direction and i have now started to find 'reasonably' priced tacho's with nmea output. i ideally just want the sender and not the gauge tho... so i'll keep searching!

Thanks again

Steve

Steve--If you find a combination that works, please let us know. I don't recall reading about any engine instrumentation which was transmitted via NMEA-0183 protocol, so I am interested to learn of it.
