Default Maretron Equipment on Simrad

Looking for some help...

I have installed Maretron Fuel flow equipment (2 x FFM100 Fuel Flow Monitors and 4 x M1AR Fuel Flow Sensors) and connected them via the NMEA2000 bus, to a Simrad NSS 12 Evo2 screen.
The boat is a 67 Foot cat with 2 x 100hp Yanmar Diesel inboards.

The Simrad screen displays the Fuel Flow Rate (L/NM) for each inboard correctly, but I am having trouble with setting up "virtual" fuel levels. After chatting with Simrad, they explained that I need a Fuel Data Manager module in the bus, which will store the levels, for the Simrad screen to use as a reference.

Installed the Fuel Data Manager, and did the vessel setup in terms of number of tanks and engines etc, but still I cannot find fuel level options anywhere on the screen.

The units all appear in the device list.

I've installed a number of Petrol / Gasoline equivalents to Simrad NSE Equipment without any issues, but am not coming right with the Maretron / Simrad NSS combo..

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Neil, Do you have the most recent software installed on the Simrad?

Hi Brian,

Yes I believe I do. Updated the software on everything I could, and confirmed this with Simrad.
Have tried to attach a few pics of what I'm seeing on the screen, but it tells me I need 10 posts before I can attach URLs...
