[CA11] Yamaha interface not showing all data

RE: [CA11] Yamaha interface not showing all data
Welcome to the Raymarine Forum Angler Management,

The data items listed within the referenced FAQ are intended to identify the data items which may be displayed by the MFD a) if the engine system/gateway transmits the corresponding NMEA 2000 PGNs and then b) populates the data within the corresponding PGN. Many engine systems / engine gateways will only transmit a subset of the listed data items to a NMEA 2000 backbone. Given the age of this engine, it is quite possible that the engine system is not be transmitting fuel consumption rate data (required for the Fuel Manager feature) as well as the other data items listed. I'm not aware of any outboard engine systems which transmit the Fuel Used (PGN 127497), requiring that the MFD perform this calculation using fuel consumption rate data received from the engine system.
When in doubt of what data is actually being transmitted to a NMEA 2000 backbone, a NMEA 2000 bus analyzing tool (ex. Actisense NGT-1-USB w/Actisense NMEA Reader PC software, etc.) would be interfaced as a spur device to the SeaTalkng / NMEA 2000 backbone to monitor and obtain detailed information concerning the system's SeaTalkng / NMEA 2000 communications. As many NMEA 2000 bus analyzer products (ex. NMEA Reader, Maretron N2kAnalyzer, etc.) convert the raw SeaTalkng / NMEA 2000 data into translated data, such analyzers can be quite helpful in analyzing and identifying problems, and should be part of a properly equipped installer's / troubleshooter's tool kit.
