-====== Garmin MFD integration ======= +moved to: https://docs.victronenergy.com/gx/mfd-garmin.html
- +
-===== 1. Introduction ===== +
-The integration technology used is called Garmin OneHelm. +
- +
-https://www.garmin.com/en-US/onehelm +
- +
-===== 2. Compatibility ===== +
- +
-OneHelm is currently available for the GPSMAP® 8400/8600 MFD series. +
- +
-===== 3. Wiring ===== +
- +
-The Garmin needs to be connected to the Venus-device using Ethernet. Its not possible to connect over WiFi. For the ethernet connection, a Garmin adapter is required: +
- +
-  - Marine Network Cables - 6ft - PART NUMBER 010-10550-00 +
-  - Marine Network Cables - 20ft - PART NUMBER 010-10551-00 +
-  - Marine Network Cables - 40ft - PART NUMBER 010-10552-00 +
-  - Marine Network Cables - 500ft - PART NUMBER 010-10647-01 +
- +
-===== 4. Configuration ===== +
- +
-=== Venus-device settings === +
- +
-   - Go to Settings -> Services, and there enable MQTT. +
-   - Go to Settings -> System Setup -> Scroll to the bottom -> Battery measurements. And there set up what batteries you want to see on the MFD; and by what name. +
- +
-=== Networking === +
-No settings are necessary. The Garmin MFDs run a DHCP server; and the Venus-devices are by default configured to use DHCP. After plugging in the cable, the Victron icon will show up after 10 to 30 seconds. +
- +
-How to connect to both a Garmin and Internet? That is unclear as of now. +
- +
-===== 5. Usage ===== +
- +
-TBD add screenshots and so forth.+
