    In what way you connected victron with boat NMEA system ?
    I have both Garmin’s NMEA 2000 network and Victron’s charger gadge etc, but what I need to connect it together?

    • Hi Piotr, This is all happening over Ethernet, not NMEA 2000, and the source is Victron’s GX monitoring/hub software, in my case the Venus GX. Also the MFD integration is in a beta version of GX, and it will only work on Garmin MFDs that support OneHelm when it is released. (My screen is from Garmin’s AC app, not MFD.)

      However, Victron says that GX will eventually support NMEA 2000 well, i.e. without the various dongles needed now.
