Question about Garmin GPSMAP 4208 GPS Receiver
On my information screen, I don't get a guage screen
Need more info:
Is your Garmin hooked up to your engine's computer via an NMEA 2000 data cable?
The gauge option will not appear in the menu if the GPS does not recognise the data coming from your engine. (If you turn on the GPS simulator, you should see the gauges on that screen.)
There are 3 possible reasons that the gauges do not appear in the menu:
1) improper wiring between engine and gauges.
2) GPS has not been set up to receive data in the GPS's NMEA setup menu.
3) Engine has not been set up to send NMEA data.
This is a relatively new feature that only works on newer engines that are NMEA 2000 capable, such as Volvo and Evinrude Etec. The engines usually need an optional instrument package to make use of the NMEA 2000 system.
We're just scratching the surface here, please reply with any questions.
