Question Question for Bluewaterpirate

545s replaced with 740s


I replaced my Garmin 545s ("due to a broken screen my wife dropped it") with a new Garmin 740s. The NMEA 2000 devices shown on the 740 are as follows;
1. Evinrude / BRP Evinrude V-ETEC EMM 5311818
2. Lowrance EP-65 R Fluid Level 1543870
3. Lowrance LMF - 400 Evinrude 1821034 - Model #: 1.0.0, Software 2.1.0 RZ 502, Serial # 1821034
4. Lowrance LMF - 400 Evinrude 1638851 - Model #: 1.0.0, Software 1.7.0 RZ 21, Serial # 1638851
5. Lowrance EP-85 R Storage Device 1940881- Model 1.5.0 Software 2.1.0 RR 77D Serial # 1940881

Also, I have a gfs-10 fuel sensor that was installed via cannet to the 545s, so far, I have not connected it to NMEA 2000 network. My question is; do I really need the gfs 10 now? The 740s receives fuel usage data from the engine's computer via NMEA 2000 network. Would the gfs 10 be redundant or am I missing something? At this point, the gfs is still on the boat but not connected to the NMEA 2000 network. Should I leave it on the boat and connect the NMEA cable or just remove it entirely?
