Default Suzuki nmea hookup

I'm going to be getting a zuke 60hp and it comes with a c10 guage, in a few months. I am looking at a HDS7 or Simrad go7 for a plotter. How does the nmea 2000 stuff work? Is it a T-fitting and cable from the guage? Or does it come all the way from the motor?

If the dealer is installing the motor and C10 gauge, then adding the Simrad or Lowrance is as easy as adding an extra T piece to the network and a cable from it to the Simrad/Lowrance.

The way it all works is actually quite simple. It is all based around a NMEA2000 network. It wont work unless you have the network.

So step 1 is to get a NMEA2000 starter kit and set up the network behind the dash. Simple stuff.

Everything is then connected to the network.

The motor is connected to the network thru a T piece by an interface cable. Then everything else including the C10 gauge and any other displays are also connected to the network via T pieces. Once they are all connected up and the network is powered on, they will all communicate with each other and data is shared and can be displayed.
