Furono plotter to yamaha speed gauge
 
I recently hooked my furono gps to my yamaha square speed gauge and I have the gps reading in kts, but the yamaha speed gauge is reading in mph. My question is does the gauge convert kts to mph because it seems right or damm close , I could,nt seem to be able to change the gauge to read kts or maybee i am missing something? Thanks in advance

Most NMEA sentences are explicit about what units of measure they're outputting speed in, with some sentences providing the units of measure in them (e.g. knots, meters/s or km/h). Unless the Yammy firmware writer was a total dummy, he should be making the conversion. So at 30 kts, the speed gauge should be showing 34/35 mph. If not, then it sounds like your suspicion may be correct.
