Default connecting Furno TZTL to Autopilot 711c

making sure I have all the right cables and connections for installing a Furuno TZTL12F chartplotter/fishfinder to a Furuno Autopilot 711c. Does anyone know if I have to run the TZTL12F thru the FAP-7002 processor, or just use a NMEA 2000 T connector to attached one of the NMEA data ports from the back of the 711C control unit to the NMEA cable that is running from the back of the TZTL12F MFD?

711c to AP Processor via white cable with 7 pin plug.

Processor to N2K T, compass to N2K T, TZTL to N2K T.

yep have the 711C already wired to the 7002 processor via the TB8 control unit A port.


So need another 000-167-967 cable to the 7002 processor - do you know what port maybe TB6- then "t" it to the NMEA 2000 cable coming from the TZTL.


Just use a termination connector the unused port on the back of the 711C control?

The 711c is a means to control the processor, nothing more - no other connections, you can add the blank plug to the other 7 pin connection on the 711c.

The processor connects to NMEA2000 via TB11 and TZT2 connects to NMEA2000 via a drop cable. You should already have a NMEA2000 backbone setup because the Navpilot likely has a PG700 heading sensor.

The 711c came with most of the backbone. Just had to get a Power T cable and a NMEA cable as per the Furuno Autopilot diagrams.


Just cannot find the details in getting the TZTL2 to be connected to the system. so I think I figured it out.


For some reason I thought you might just connect the NMEA cable from the TZTL2 empty port on the 711C.

the TB11 is connected to PG700 heading sensor via a pigtail (you need to buy) .

The Controller unit is connected to the processor via the supplied white CAN bus to TB8

Now thinking the TZTL2 is connected via TB6 via another pig tail

Furuno does respond to inquires, just takes them a long time and you play a lot of phone tag

Listen man I've installed two of these units on two of my boats, I own a marine electronics company and I can tell you unequivocally and without any doubt that if you want to interface your TZ touch 2 with this unit that is done through TB11 Nmea 2000 / CAN etc.

You made a post asking for advice on how to hook something up and now you want to disagree with me.

I'm sure you can hook it up to Nema 0183 as well but if you want the two to talk to each other then it must be done the way I'm telling you to do it. When I say talk to each other I mean you hit go to on your TZ touch and your TZ touch asks you if you want to navigate using the navpilot.

On a different note you're going to love this new setup.

Just go this from Furuno. So I "T" off the Power T. All good. Was not disagreeing.

These instructions read like an insurance policy at times.


I think were I got confused was a referral to a drop cable to an open connector. The instructions for the 711c do not show any open connector available, the control and heading sensor tie into the processor.


So Tee-ing off the Power T creates that open connector, and all should be good.

This is all pretty clearly spelled out in the installation manual. I assume you have it? If not, it can be down loaded from Furuno's web site.

This document is not specific to the 711c but is helpful for understanding NMEA 2k andFuruno interfaces:
