Default HDS connection to 2008 optimax


I have been thinking about connecting my HDS 8 to my Opti. Was wondering what I need to do it and if its worth doing.

Mercury has their Smart Gauge technology they designed which is proprietary technology. Therefore they do not support the engine interface that allows you to display gauge and engine information on your Lowrance units. Yamaha and Evinrude only.
