Merc Smartcraft connections
I have an '04 2700 SE with a Merc 5.0 MPI. As I understand things, it should have a junction box for Smartcraft in order to hook up VesselView. I may have some info mixed up here, this is all new to me.
I took a look in the engine compartment (albeit quickly) on the weekend and could not identify the box. I also looked behind the dash and didn't notice it. What exactly does it look like and where is it normally located?
Part 2, I have a Garmin GPSMAP 942xs on the boat so could run NMEA2000 to it for engine data but am thinking having VesselView on my iphone nearby might be easier so I can just leave the chartplotter on the charts.
Voltmeter does not seem to be working on the boat and not sure I trust another gauge or two so having it all digital would be nice.
Open to everyone's thoughts. Thanks
PS. I know this could have gone into Electronics as well but since its engine related....
