Navman 41 vs. Standard Horizon FF41? Standard offering a $75 rebate which makes it around $25 cheaper than the Navman. Comments from any owners of either of these gauges would be greatly appreciated. More importantly, Navman suggests their product for use with carb'd engines. I will be installing on a 250 HP Yami OX66 EFI engine. Is either of these suitable for this engine?

Thanks,

George

I've been told they are identical. They look the same except for the name. I just bought the Standard because of the rebate. I'll put it on when it warms up a little. Got 6 in. of snow this morning.

George,

I have the Navman hooked up to my Yamaha 250 Ox66 and it works perfectly.

For the money, it's a great deal.

is being installed by me this weekend. Ran the long cable from the fuel transducer to the instrument area today. Will drill the panel hole, mount the gauge, mount and install the transducer tomorrow.

Great buy with the $75 rebate.

Will post useage results when the weather gets up above 40 again...

Installing the Standard today. The $75 rebate decided between them for me.

Noticed that boatersworld.com has the navman for $149. Does the $75 Standard rebate make the net price of the Standard lower than $149. If so, where?

The linked page shows a price of $183.95, so the price you noted must be after the rebate...

These units - the Navman and the Standard FF41 - will work with any outboard engine that does NOT have a fuel return to the tank from the engine.

I think it will work just fine with your HPDIs.

I went with the Navman, but I bought the navman fishfinder, and the fuel module attaches to that. This summer I plan to get the Navman plotter and move the fuel module to that. With either the FF or Plotter, you not only get fuel used/remaining but an estimate of how much futher you can travel, MPG etc....

I go the FF for Christmas, and like someothers to much snow to try it out yet. As soon as the shrink wrap comes off it goes on and the boat in the water!!! 53 days until our docks open. But who is counting!!!!

Just put the standard horizon unit on a 1720 Key West with a 90 Yamaha. Took about 1 hour to install, which included cutting the hole in the dash for the guage. It worked great the first time out and was very accurate.

I ordered the Standard from them on Friday, it showed up Monday. Pretty sure they still have stock. Ten dollars more than Bethel but they've got them.

strikerthree noted his error regarding his "7 year warranty" post in another thread. The Navman warranty is two (2) years, with the usual exceptions.

I have the Nav-man on my Sea Craft, took about 1 hour to put in and works great. Never more then a 1/2 of a gallon off from what I put in it to what it said I burned.. makes premixing your fuel super easy now..
