The Parts Forum - WTS: LMF-400 / Evinrude I-Command digital gauge
THE HULL TRUTH is the world's largest FREE network for the discussion of Boating & Fishing. Whether you're researching a new boat, or are a seasoned Captain, you'll find The Hull Truth Boating & Fishing Message Forum contains a wealth of information from Boaters and Sportfishermen around the world.
Picked up a used lot of these from a shop going out of business for my boat and have tested them all out and flashed to latest version (2.3). Figured I might sell the ones I didn't use fairly cheap at $140 shipped (continental US) considering new they go for $200+
Sale includes a used LMF-400/I-Command gauge, the aluminum bracket, nylon nuts, washers. They are the red/black connector, if you need the blue connector let me know and I can send you that one instead. Unit is used, so expect the usual scuffs and scratches. I do have a couple of piezo buzzers available but am running out, they are $5 each with a gauge.
Feel free to ask any questions. Thanks!
More info here:
This is an nmea 2000 gauge that can display most info put out on the network. On my boat I have the engine putting out fuel flow, temp, hours, oil lvl, etc; the gps putting out speed, water temp, depth, and a memory unit to keep track of fuel level, fuel used, etc. All this shows up on the gauges set up on "pages" you can customize. I absolutely love them :)

I just picked one of these up on Ebay this week for a similar price. Then I had to get an antenna, network starter kit and extra T-Connectors and EP-60r fuel sensor. Just ordered the sensor this morning from BOE so hoping to have that tomorrow and finish the install. Really wanted the fuel flow MPG so I can keep track of my fuel usage.
I have seen a few of the fuel-flow sensors for sale here every so often for a good price. I believe amazon has good deals on network starter kits for those building an nmea 2000 network from scratch too.
The evinrude network design tool is very handy:
Any interest? I came across some of the buzzers, so can throw those in too now.
Still have a few of these left, make me an offer if you are interested in one! (or more!)

I bought a couple of these off gjb - he shipped them fast, they are in great condition, and work 100%. If you are looking to add icommand digital, it's a good option.

how many do you have left and are they in good condition
Quite a few. They are all in good condition, but are used as described above. I have a pair on my boat and many happy buyers :)

Just bought 4 of these for my re power they are awesome well worth the money and in great shape.
Thanks Seagenie. I still have a few left if people are looking for them.
I also have a few nasty ones that I'm selling for _cheap_ if someone just wants one to play with, etc. They work fine but the screen is really scratched up.
I also have a few blue-connector ones laying around that are in good condition if anyone is looking for one with the older nmea2k connector.
Still have very few of these left, get them while they are hot :)
Remember, new they run north of $250...
Came across another set so I have 10 more available! They make great xmas gifts too ;)

what kind of hole do they need?
Standard 3-3/8" (86mm) diameter hole. Just pull out your regular standard-sized dials and these should fit right in.

I want to use these units strictly to monitor fuel flow and remaining fuel flow. Will i need anything else other than the gauge and the sensor?
Copying from another thread...
"You have two choices. If you want to read tank levels directly, you'll need the EP-65R http://www.lowrance.com/en-US/Products/NMEA-2000/EP-65R-Fluid-Level-en-us.aspx sensors (one per tank). But if you want to read fuel FLOW, then you'll want the EP-60R http://www.lowrance.com/en-US/Products/NMEA-2000/EP-60R-Fuel-Flow-en-us.aspx sensors (one per engine). But be aware, you near-certainly do NOT want to use both; and my recommendation would be to use just EP-60Rs -- reasons being:
The EP-60R (in combination with an LMF-400/200 or a semi-recent Lowrance or Simrad MFD) will not only report and keep track of fuel flow, and calculate instantaneous specific fuel consumption in either GPH or (presuming you have a source of speed data on your N2K bus) MPG; it will *also* keep track of how much fuel is remaining in your tank(s) at any given moment, as well as range-to-empty based on current/recent consumption rates. It does this by constantly deducting each drop of fuel burned from the last "fill level" value it was given (i.e., at refuel time, be that a full or partial refill). In practice, and assuming a well-installed and properly functional system, it will do this MUCH more accurately than reading tank level directly, in part because it is not subject to the inaccuracies of a float switch vs. pitch, roll, sloshing, etc."
You may also need the memory unit to save fuel remaining if you are using the flow meter instead of the float. Overall the best way is with an engine interface on a new engine to allow the EMM to report fuel flow as they pass the injectors.
If you don't have an existing NMEA2000 network you will need one T per device, terminators, and a power cable in addition to the LMF-400's.

please let me know if you have any more available.
Yes, I still have a few left.

i am looking for 2 for an 06 etec. how much for two with one buzzer. What is your prefered method of payment ? paypal ?
Note that nmea2k support for a 2006 is only on the 115-300hp range. You also need an nmea2k network in place to connect these to. You probably already know this but just recently I took a return on one where the buyer did not know their engine needed to support the network ;)
They have been going for ~$140 each, I could do $260 for two shipped to conus. Paypal is preferred.
