Default 2000 Yamaha HPDI 200 To Lowrance HDS Gen 3

I have searched every place on the internet to see if this can be done, but I can't find anything.

I have a 2000 Yamaha HPDI 200 that is hooked up to the 6Y5 gauges. Unfortunately the gauges are to the point that you cant read them anymore even after rehabbing the plexiglass covers. Since I have a HDS7, I wanted to see if there is any way to hook it up to that with some sort of adapter that can read the same things the 6y5 gauges included.

I realize that Yamaha engines 2006 and newer engines had a NMEA 2000 plug that allowed this to hook up to the network but the older engines do not. Does anyone have a work around for this. Does anyone make a kit?

so two threads here:

- repair your existing gauges (the actual display, not just the plexi):

- convert your current analog data to NMEA 2000:
