-moved to: https://docs.victronenergy.com/​gx/mfd-garmin.html+====== Garmin MFD integration ====== 
 + 
 +Preliminary manual 
 + 
 +===== Introduction ===== 
 + 
 +The integration technology used is called [[https://​www.garmin.com/​en-US/​onehelm|Garmin OneHelm]]. 
 + 
 +===== Compatibility =====

 + 
 +===== Wiring ===== 
 + 
 +The Garmin needs to be connected to the [[https://​www.victronenergy.com/​live/​venus-os:​start|GX 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 
 + 
 +===== Configuration ===== 
 + 
 +==== GX device settings ==== 
 +  
 +  - Ordered List Item 
 +  - 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. Make sure to check out [[https://www.dropbox.com/​s/​nlvqttx320zyaba/​Battery%20Measurements.mov?​dl=0|this video, which shows how to configure the batteries to be visible on the MFD]] 
 +  - For boats; and other applications with DC loads such as lighting and a Battery Monitor installed, make sure to enable the "Has DC system setting"​. For more information about it; see the [[https://​www.victronenergy.com/​live/ccgx:​start|GX Manual]]. 
 + 
 +==== Networking ==== 
 +No special networking settings are necessary. Not on the Garmin; and not on the Victron GX Device. 
 + 
 +The Garmin MFDs run a DHCP server; and the [[https://​www.victronenergy.com/​live/​ccgx:​start|GX device]] are by default configured to use DHCP. After plugging in the cable, the Victron icon will show up after 10 to 30 seconds. 
 + 
 +To connect the GX Device to the internet and the [[https://​vrm.victronenergy.com|VRM Portal]], while its Ethernet port is already in use to connect to the Garmin, use either WiFi or a GX GSM. [[https://​www.victronenergy.com/​​live/​​ccgx:​​start#​​internet_connectivity|more information]].
