  • Yamaha F115, NMEA 2000 compatibility ?

    Hi,
    I registered to this board because I was hoping someone could tell me if my 2006 Yamaha F115 is NMEA 2000 compatible ?
    If so, I would be very interested in connecting my Lowrance 8200c to my engine.

    kind regards

    You're making me think about this for the F150 and my Humminbird 787c2

      Thanks for your reply.
      That was interesting, can you tell me where I can find the "command link" interface on the engine ? Or even better, a picture of the connector ?

          Here's mine (on a 2005 F150) ... it's a white connector with blue and white wires, a little hard to find when attached to its mounting bracket at the front of the engine.

            I already have Lowrance LMF-200 and LMF-400 gauges hooked to a nmea 2000 network with a '06 F115. Works great and a lot cheaper than the command link stuff but it does have some limitations. You will probably also want the storage module (lowrance EP-85R) so you can also keep things like trip fuel used and seasonal fuel used between starts/runs. I also have a nmea 2000 gps hooked up and now can compute mpg. The engine already gives you fuel flow, engine temp, alternator voltage, etc... . Also, most engine warning messages appear if you monitor system messages. I know for a fact the "low oil pressure" and "overheat" messages definetely do appear. I do not have a picture of the connector on the engine but I will take one today and post, probably, tomorrow. Goodluck and let me know if you find out anythingb else interesting.

                  tech bulliten should be avalible at any yamaha dealer.
                  its sent out automatically.
                  no websites that I am aware of.

                      nope.
                      this machine has no scanner or printer.
                      but any yamaha dealer will have the above referenced tech bulliten.
                      or should.
                      if they dont please find a real dealership.
