Big Grin [CA11] Axiom 7dv and new NMEA 2k network
Hi, I just bought an axiom 7dv and want to setup a nmea2k network on my boat and have a couple of questions being a newbie to nmea2k. Appreciate the help

1 axiom came with a dual nmea2k /power cord, if I setup a NMEA backbone will this feed the network power via the axiom panel? Or do I need to setup a dedicated backbone power cable and not connect the power side of my axiom cable?

2. What connection should I use for the network as the cable is micro c/device net but most the Raymarine site speaks SeaTalkng? I am leaning micro c

3 I want to add a lowrance fuel sensor ep60 as Raymarine does not offer one does it out of the box with fuel manager? I have seen the thread on this saying I need a lowrance instrument to setup and use, have read the documentation and seems to be fairly well calibrated for my std square tank out of the box- I can always get a legacy lmf200 or 400 afterwards and plug into the network...

4 also wondering if I need the lowrance fuel data manager for the fuel economy and range calculation in fuel manager ?

5 any recommendation on the best analog data converter to add tach, trim and cylinder head temp data from my Faria analog gauges for my 1990 Johnson 225 2stroke outboard? I have read on albacomb, noland RS11 and some Actisense, leaning towards albacombi

6 on the tach, I have the system check, any way to tap those signals to show the temp, engine alarms on the axiom mfd?

7 do I need a speed sensor and network compás on the net to have fuel manager economy, heading and speed data? I see in the setup that it does not pick up any sensors for speed through water or heading on the network (just the axiom being powered up, no network setup yet, thought the gps module would provide that as well. It just sees gps and datum ?

Sorry for the long post, but I have read like crazy and still have questions and the Raymarine documentation is not to clear on these aspects.

Regards and thanks in advance for your patience and feedback.

A day in the water is the better than anywhere else. Wait, maybe the water should become my office...
