It does interface with my Coastal Explorer plotter so I see the info there also.
Henry, I'm installing a similar system except older Detroit require an Actisense EMU-1 to get engine data close enough to N2K for a Marathon connection and true conversion. I'm considering the Marathon MBB100 Black Box in the backbone so the gauge software doesn't have to compete for resources from a single PC running Navigation. When you said; " I'm running Maretron's N2KView on a separate PC" are you saying separate from your PC that's running your nav software?
Tim, not sure about the Noland but do know the Actisense (one per engine) we bought are only N2K "compatible". May not be an issue depending on your use, but to gain N2K "compliance" necessary to work on a Furuno network we are using Marathon to convert.
