Mike correct. Since you already have SMIS gauges that indicates you have two Engine Interface Cables already in the system. You will need a cable from the Raymarine network to the Suzuki network.

So you already have a nmea2000 network with the suzuki gauges and you have a nmea2000 network (called a seatalkng network) with your ray stuff. I would suggest leaving both networks in place and powered, but join them with an adapter that will isolate power. Basically, pull a terminator off one end of each network, and leave the other terminator in place.

Get yourself one of these cables http://boemarine.ecomm-search.com/re...f-seatalkng%2F

And a field installable n2k connector http://boemarine.ecomm-search.com/re...nector-male%2F

Cut an end off the raymarine cable, install the maretron field installable connector and connect all wires but the red one. It is all color coded, even a caveman could do it.

Connect this cable where you removed the terminators.

Done.

The way I showed you via PM will be easier as it saves you a step.

Remember, the displayed data on the Raymarine head unit, like any other brand, will completely depend on how well the Suzuki gauges were set up. So, make sure that Starb is Starb and port is port. Then make sure the fuel data is setup correctly as well. A good dealer is paramount with this! --- fyi
