We get lots of inquiries about this, but we have yet to post the solution for easy reference. Well, here it is.
If you have the Command Link Round Gauge setup that is becoming so popular, and is pictured below then we can get you connected to NMEA2000. Here is what you need.
You'll replace part number 6Y8-81920-11-00 with Yamaha's 3 port Command Link Hub
You then cap off the open ports on the hub with these:
You will now have a spare Command Link port to plug our NMEA2000 to Command Link Converter cable into. If you want to connect a display directly to the hub and NOT use a NMEA2000 network then you'll need this cable here.
If you are using a NMEA2000 network and want to get data onto that network then you'll need to buy this cable here.
If you are connecting to an existing NMEA2000 network don't forget you'll need another T Connector for our adapter cable. Our adapter cable is also only 18" long so you may need a NMEA2000 extension cable.
Here are some popular options:
- Garmin T Connector
- Garmin NMEA2000 Cable
- Simrad/Lowrance T Connector
- Simrad/Lowrance extension cable
