 A GX Device can be connected to a Marine MFD in two ways: the simple plug and play like method uses an Ethernet connection, which enables the MFD App. Available for [[https://​www.victronenergy.nl/​panel-systems-remote-monitoring/​marine%20mfd%20gx%20integration%20-%20raymarine|Raymarine]],​ [[https://​www.victronenergy.nl/​panel-systems-remote-monitoring/​marine%20mfd%20gx%20integration%20-%20garmin|Garmin]],​ as well as the [[https://​www.victronenergy.nl/​panel-systems-remote-monitoring/​marine%20mfd%20gx%20integration|Navico brands B&G, Lowrance and Simrad]].

-The other type of integration is to connect the GX Device to the NMEA2000 network. See the [[https://​www.victronenergy.com/​live/​ccgx:​start#​marine_mfd_integration_by_nmea2000|NMEA 2000 chapter in the CCGX manual]] for details.+The other type of integration is to connect the GX Device to the NMEA2000 network.

 Both connections can be made and used at the same time, and each has its advantages and disadvantages. The MFD App is by far the simplest method. It presents an easy to use system overview without requiring any configuration. The NMEA 2000 integration on the other hand, whilst being more complex, allows more customisation on the MFD: the data will show up in the data-tree of the MFD, and most MFDs then allow the user to configure various pages and combinations of information. This is not so with the MFD App, as the only available settings are to show or hide battery parameters (Voltage, SOC, Current) as well as naming the batteries. Both connections can be made and used at the same time, and each has its advantages and disadvantages.
