Default Navman Fuel Flow

Anyone have any experience with Navman's fuel monitoring system? I have experience with Floscan on other boats, but never used Navman. Price is a lot cheaper, so am I going to get what I pay for or is it a decent system? I will be buying one for a 2 stroke carb 200 hp single engine...thanks

The 3100 will give you 3 times the imfo that a flow scan will. That and it has 1in tall number's display. Easy to read when you bouncing around.

After searching and reading posts I ordered the Navman 3100 from Jim at BOE
last week. Shipping was next day air for $4.95. Unit was sitting on my front porch
the day after I ordered it. I'm installing this weekend.

This is the second boat I have used the Navman 2100. The Navman is like Vessel Assist, "never leave home without it". My engine is a 2000 Johnson 200 HP (carb) Boater's World had / has it on sale for $129.99. This is a great unit. Easy install following the directions. Good luck, Jack

I have the Navman 2100 on my boat, and it is monitoring a 225 Yamaha OX66.
One of my "most used" instruments... Bought mine from BOE Marine.

Just bought F4500 fishfinder w/ fuel mgmnt from BOE
Easy to install.
First time out did not even have to calibrate. Was within .3 gal in 82
When rebuilding my console I am cosidering leaving out old fuel gage,
it's useless. Navman sure does give you piece of mind knowing exactly what your fuel situation is.

Hi,
I have used Navman Fuel 3100 in two seasons now.
It works fine. But You really need to read the manual carefully so You understand the settings and meny system.
It is important to calibrate it with an exact known amount of fuel to get better then the out of box + - 10%
inacurracy.
It is easy to install.
It is a must You are very carful when refueling (to full or otherwise) the set remaining fuel. Otherwise You
will not know how much remaining fuel You have.

I have not done the research that I need to so far....can anyone tell me real quick what the 3100 will do vs the 2100? I know, I am lazy for not looking, but I have to go to bed now and be up early, hoping the answer will be here tomorrow...thanks and I owe you a few beers...

f3100 has a gps interface...will give gps speed info the the navman, allowing it to display mpg, and thus range remaining and a resettable trip computer

So would I be correct to say that the only things that the 2100 do is give you gph burn and total remaining fuel?
