Default Fusion is a no show on 6212

I have a fusion 700 connected to my 2000 backbone but I can't get my garmin 6212 to recognize it. Just updated garmin software and still nothing. Garmin sees the gxm and the gsd.

Where should I start?

Fusion software? Any setting on the fusion or way to see if you can pull up depth or position to see if you are in fact correctly on the network.

1. Make sure your firmware is updates not he Fusion unit. More often then not this handles any issues with Fusion products.

2. It looks by your post that you checked the Garmin and the Fusion is not appearing not he device list. If the firmware is up to date, it looks like you have a network issue. Check to be sure you used a non powered NMEA 2K network drop cable for the connection. You can buy this from Garmin or you can cut the power in a standard cable and shrink wrap.

3. Make sure all your network cables are good. We have had rare occasions where we have had a defective cable int he mix and you don't get connectivity.

4. After 1-3 are completed and if it still does not operate properly, I would seek warranty service.

thanks guys. Neither machine recognizes each other. The dealer who did the install, did some other things a little goofy so i'm trying to dial everything in. Checking to make sure it's a non powered cable is a great place to start as is the updating of the fusion software.

I'll try that Sunday when i'm off and report back.

thanks again.
