NMEA2000 Compatibility

Can my Humminbird unit read data from my boat engine?

This depends on whether your engine outputs NMEA2000 (also known as NMEA2K or N2K) sentences that the Humminbird unit can read, the type of engine you own (Yamaha, Honda, Mercury, Evinrude, or Suzuki) and also the Humminbird model that you own. Below is a compatibility chart that also shows required cables from Humminbird, the engine manufacturer and other third-party sources.

Humminbird sells a NMEA2000 Starter Kit - Single and a NMEA2000 Starter Kit - Dual to make getting started easy.
