Can Maretron’s sensor data be displayed on a Garmin network?Estimated Reading Time: 1 Minutes
Yes, much of Maretron device’s data can be shown on Garmin displays with “NMEA 2000” functionality. Firstly, Maretron recommends that customers verify device compatibility by reviewing the Maretron product’s datasheet specifically, the transmit PGN section of the datasheet (page 2). Second, review the Chart plotters datasheet for Received PGN list for display to confirm the compatibility.
Please note: Maretron devices allow for multi message distinction to be interpreted correctly on a display for example: PGN 130314(Temperature) allows for source selection with an instance number selection. A configuration that can only be adjusted using a Maretron device interface. The device configuration can be performed using a Maretron DSM150/250/410 or our N2KAnalyzer software tool only.
