    I don't have any gauges on my Vantage. All of my Zuke engine data reads directly to my HDS7 through the NMEA2000 network cable. I don't know if your analog tach reads data from that same cable connection or if it has its own, connection. If it does read NMEA2000 data, you will only need a T and make the connection to the tach. If it reads separately, then no need to tie them together as the RPM's and a host of other engine info can be displayed on your Lowrance, including engine hours to the 1/10th, and fuel burn.

    Here is my current tach above.

    Thank you. Pretty sure my tach doesn’t have NMEA compatibility so I ended up buying the adapter cable parts and I’m going to make it myself. I’ll post an update once I get the parts.
