Default smartcraft sc1000 monitor purchasing help

I have twin 2004 opti 135's that are smartcraft compatible. I have tachs right now that are not mercury but work. I am wanting the ability to see fuel consumption, engine temperature, hours and water psi. I found this and it looks like it might work. My questions are:
1) do i need smartcraft gauges to network with this thing or can it work on its own?
2) What else do i need to buy to hook this thing up? Right now I have engines and that's it.
3) is this a good price?
4) Any better ideas for what i am wanting to accomplish without spending over $1000 on lots of gauges or vessel view?


Here is the product

Hello, that unit was phased out by Mercury about 10 years ago, that is new old stock, they havent supplied it for ages, don´t know how much a new sc1000 will set you back, with twins you would need two sets of gauges or the vesselview and a junction box, you could get a junction box, tie box engines in and get a mercury gateway to view the information on your plotter, you would need to check with Mercury with that model year as I am not sure of the top of my head of the flavor of nmea compatibility. Hope this helps.
