Default Smart craft + Vessel view on 150 EFI and garmin 740s

Hi

I live outside the states and where i come from we still get new EFI engines

So i have those 2 new 150 EFI engines and i want to go the smart craft & vessel view route

the question is:

1.would vessel view work with my engines and gives me all the engine data ( water temp, water pressure, volt)?

I bought all the required cables and connectors through veradoclubparts ( who were excellent ) and still waiting to decide on the vessel view

2. I already have a garmin 740s , would it display all the mentioned data or it would only show the RPM

3. how to connect the fuel gauge to the smartcarft network

Thanks

1. If you are talking about the new 150 FourStrokes, then yes.
2. Yes, the 740s will display engine data besides RPM.
3. You need a Mercury SmartCraft Fuel/Paddle harness. It will connect at the engine and then run out to your fuel tank/tanks. The harness has 2 tank level inputs.

The engines are 150 EFI two stroke with smart craft connectors
I know that smart craft gauges works, but would the vessel view work as well

In order to get water pressure on my MercMonitor from my 150 four stroke, I had to install a water pressure sensor not included in the base engine package.

If gauges work, the VesselView will work. The VV accepts and displays the same CAN data as the gauges.
