Default Anyone know about Gateway connectors for Mercruiser?

Hello all you knowledgeable boaters out there. Iíve a question for you please:
Does anyone know about gateway connectors that can hook-up a Garmin chart plotter to a 2000 mercruiser 7.4 MPI (454ci)? The plotter is a Garmin Eckomate that has vesselview. It would be nice to be able to read the engine functions from the plotter as advertised.
I have a 2000 Maxum 2800scr.
Thanks a million,

I'm not that knowledgeable, but I did come across this video about hooking up a system to some 1999-2000 vintage 454's to a new Garmin system. See if this gives you any ideas.

Default Engine Gateway

I just installed an engine gateway on my new to me 2000 2700SCR with the 7.4L MPI. I went with one from Fox Marine and is hooked up to a Simrad IS35 Display. My engine used the MEFI-3 and I added the oil pressure kit. So far I'm very happy with it and Allen with Fox was very helpful. As far as the Garmin side of things I have no experience but suspect a quick e-mail to Fox will get you all the info you need.
