To clarify. I am planning to replace many of the analog gauges with new. I would like to also have the data via NMEA.The real goal is to have the NMEA data wireless, and able to view on android phone, ipad, and perhaps PC, from anywhere on the boat. I have a Garman chartplotter that hopefully will support some of the data.


I would also like to add a few things that are not currently monitored. Such as exhaust temp, trans temp and/or pressure, bilge high level alarm, and pressure on the exit side of the primary fuel filters. The pressures on the gears (Hurth 630A), and the pressure/vacuum on the fuel filters look like the biggest challenge.


The Noland equipment looks pretty good, however, if I read correctly, there are measurement issues as the supply voltage changes. There may be a workaround for that, and the errors may not be significant enough to worry about. The Chetco equipment looks pretty good also, but a bit more pricey.
