2008 194FS & NMEA 2000???

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at the Garmin 441S gps w/ transducer for my boat mentioned in the title. This little unit is compatible with NMEA 2000 standards...... does my boat have that technology? Or is that only found on bigger boats?

 

I have the Volvo outdrive..... 6 cylinder fuel injected.

 

Thanks everyone!

Hi

 

You will need to check with Volvo for your actual motor / model

 

I think you will need to have an interface box added to your motor (if its not already there) This is unlikely, as Volvo would have only fitted if you had the Volvo EDC system. Back in 2008 it was standard on diesel motors but an option on gas motors.

 

I suspect you will need big pockets to have it retro fitted - probably a lot more than your Garmin 441S.

 

Good luck!

I also am looking at upgrading my depth sounder. I have the in-hull transducer and I was wondering if it's compatible with other gps/depth sounder units? Or do I need to replace it with another unit if I want to upgrade? Any options or info would be great
