Hello, my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?

What kind of data were you looking to feed to the GPS?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
RPM, engine (water temp), oil temp & pressure, engine hours and any other available data. I'm not sure if any or all of this is possible on my boat (can anNMEA2000 interface be connected to this motor). Also fuel flow/use info, but I know this would require a separate flow sensor.

Got it. I don't know of any possible way to do this. I will opt out and leave this open to the comminuty.
