Default Garmin GFS-10

I was wondering if anybody out there hooked this up? Since I can't use a floscan i was going to buy this. I will be hooking it up to a 545s. Thanks for your input. Joe

I have a GFS10 hooked up to a Garmin 545s. Since the 545 is NMEA0183, you have to use the CANet connection kit. It will work...biggest pain is splicing the tiny little wires (way less than 22 ga.). I used the 3M (?) connectors with the red button. Each spring, and occasionally during the season, I have to reach inside the console and shake the splices a little bit to get them to reconnect and "wake up" the GFS10 to 545s connection. But in general, it works...I think it will show a flow rate down to .2 gph. I have it on a Sailfish 206 with a Yam F150.
