Default Volvo Penta ‘Glass Cockpit’ 8215 compatible with GFS-10?


I have a Volvo Penta 200hp gasoline engine (not EVC) hooked up to a glass cockpit 8215.

i have engine data displayed on the screen, however it does not include fuel usage. Apparently without the EVC that data is unavailable.

I would like to be able to see my fuel usage L/h and I think the GFS 10 will do that. The 8215 is listed as a compatible MFD on the Garmin website.

The Volvo Penta dealer though thinks that it may not be compatible because of the different firmware on the Volvo Penta glass cockpit unit.

Has anyone used the GFS with a Volvo Penta system?

I’m a little hesitant to fork out for the unit to find it is not compatible, then try to sell it secondhand.
