Yamaha to HDS Live

 A mate of mine has a Yamaha 70 hp four stroke and wants to be able to display engine and fuel data on his HDS Live. There is no nmea 2000 backbone fitted to the boat but he does have 2 Yamaha CY8 Multi Function gauges. So my question is what is required to connect the Yamaha to a nmea backbone is there a loom to go from the back of the gauges or direct from the engine?

Give is a bell on 9434 1822 if you need assistance....it is not necessary to connect to the engine though, you can use the 6Y8 LAN Hub behind the dash which the gauges run into. There are 2 ways to do this...

Navico NMEA2000 Starter Kit

Navico Yamha Interface Cable


Navico NMEA2000 Starter Kit

Genuine Yamaha Gateway (Highly recommended)

Yamaha LAN Cable

NMEA2000 drop cable


By using the Yamaha Gateway you will be able to unlock the Yamaha "APP" on your HDS Live
