Default Engine data no longer displaying on Garmin

My Garmin 741xs suddenly stopped displaying the data from Suzuki 60. Any ideas on where the likely culprit is? I'm not seeing the engine as one of the listed devices in the Settings menus.

I would start with cables and connections.

As you state its "not one of the listed devices" I take it the N2K backbone is powered OK and not from the engine and that other devices are connected and displaying. There should only be one power source connected to the N2K.

You also say "it stopped displaying data" does that mean the data was there and greyed out... or wasn't there when you powered up the engine?

Try rebooting with the key on, so that the engine can be found at boot up rather than discovered afterwards.
Then as Yrral suggests check cables.
