Easy installed interface
To get started, the Easy Connect interface plugs directly into the EVC multilink at the helm station, or into the engine harness on non-EVC gasoline engines.
The Easy Connect interface includes NMEA2000 functionality. This means it can also be connected to an existing NMEA network within the boat. This enables you to access additional data from i.e. speed and depth sensors.
In addition, the Easy Connect interface can be used to convert engine data into NMEA2000 compatible chart plotters/multi-function displays onboard.
