Not a rumor. I got mine from England . the name plate will be "Merlin", the actual manufacturer. The Balmar gauge is simply a re-badge for double the price.

I have my smart guage hooked to my house bank....even with very high initial voltages after starting, I never get error codes. If hooked to the start battery, maybe change over? A second battery can be monitored, that is my start battery.

In addition to trying to remember what CMS offers, note he can source most marine gear if you send him an email

RC Collins compassmarineservices@gmail.com

And donations to help defray his web hosting fees can be made here

Probably one on the new site as well, please post if you see it
