Can the newer Garmin combo units use both GMN and NMEA2k networks?
I want to tie my Yamaha motor into a Garmin network (it will be new equipment and motor).
I tried (unsuccessfully) to tie my 90hp 2006 Yamaha to a Lowrance 5200C via a 2k network and also to a Garmin 546S. I have all of the cabling, starter package, etc. The two old combo units both recognize the motor and the rest of the devices on the network but they have no new information to display - kind of like they are too dumb to do anything with the information.
I'd like to tie a 200hp Yamaha into a new Garmin 1040XS combo (haven't fully decided on the combo unit yet, but it is looking like the 1040 is what I am looking for).
