Default LOWRANCE LMF-400 W/FUEL FLOW SENSOR EP-10

Does anyone know if this set up requires the "LowranceNET network"or is it a stand alone set up? Thanks in advance for any info!

It is stand-alone. Everything you need is in the box to use the lmf 400 as a fuel flow meter.

ditto on what jim just mentioned above. The one thing I will add though, if you want the ability to read miles per gallon, you will have to import GPS signal into the mix. This will involve adding a NMEA 2000 compatible antenna. I've got a Lowrancenet compatible plotter, which made this really easy, but would not want to be without the MPG reading, if you are planning on using your meter to maximize efficiency this is the most important factor IMO.

Does it also come with the power hookup (not backlight, but the main 12v power) if not connecting to existing NMEA 2000 network?

I will be adding one as a Standalaone and see the manual doesn't say anything if adding from scratch.

Like Jim says, everything you need is in the box. I am using mine as a stand alone; in other words, there is no "network" on my boat - just the sender and gauge and I didn't need anyhting else. I will say this, unless they've made some changes the directions SUCK ASS. PM me if you need any help.

Is your boat a single or twin engine? I want to do the same to my Marinette
and the fact that the set up can stand alone is just what I want. Do you think I
need any more hardware Jim?
