-moved to: https://docs.victronenergy.com/gx/mfd-garmin.html+====== Garmin MFD integration ====== 
 + 
 + 
 +===== 1. Introduction ===== 
 + 
 +This document explains how to connect to Garmin MFDs using an Ethernet connection. 
 +The integration technology used is called [[https://www.garmin.com/en-US/onehelm|Garmin OneHelm]]. 
 + 
 +Make sure to also study the [[https://www.victronenergy.com/live/ccgx:start#marine_mfd_integration_by_app|Marine MFD Integration by App chapter in the manual]]. 
 + 
 +Note that there is an alternative method to connect, which is NMEA2000. See the [[https://www.victronenergy.com/live/ccgx:start#marine_mfd_integration_by_nmea_2000|NMEA2000 chapter in the main manual]]. 
 + 
 +===== 2. Compatibility ===== 
 + 
 +OneHelm is currently available for the following models: 
 +  * GPSMAP® 8400/8600 MFD series 
 +  * GPSMAP® 722/922/1222 Plus MFD series 
 + 
 +Also, Active Captain is supported. Below screenshot shows ActiveCaptain, with the Victron App. 
 + 
 +From Victron side, all GX devices (Cerbo GX, CCGX, Venus GX, and so forth) can be used and are compatible. For details on detailed product compatibility with regarding to inverter/chargers and other components, see the [[https://www.victronenergy.com/live/ccgx:start#marine_mfd_integration_by_app|main Marine MFD App chapter in the GX Manual]]. 
 + 
 +{{:venus-os:garmin_gx.jpeg?nolink&800|}} 
 + 
 +===== 3. 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 
 + 
 + 
 +===== 4. Configuration ===== 
 + 
 +==== 4.1. GX device settings ==== 
 +  
 +  - Go to //Settings -> Services//, and there enable both //MQTT on LAN (SSL)// and //MQTT on LAN (Plaintext)//.{{:venus-os:venus-html5-mqtt.png?400|}} 
 +  - Go to //Settings -> System Setup -> Scroll to the bottom -> Marine MFD App configuration//. 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]]. {{:venus-os:venus-html5-batteries1.png?400|}}{{:venus-os:venus-html5-batteries2.png?400|}} 
 +  - 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]]. 
 + 
 +==== 4.2. 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 WiFi. [[https://www.victronenergy.com/​live/​ccgx:​start#​internet_connectivity|more information]]. 
 + 
 +:!: Connecting a Garmin MFD to a network router over Ethernet leads to IP address conflicts, due to the integrated DHCP server.  
 + 
 +:!: It is not possible to use a [[https://www.victronenergy.com/accessories/gx-gsm|GX GSM]], due to the integrated DHCP server of the Garmin MFD. 
 + 
 +===== 5. Configuring Multiple Battery Monitors =====

 +===== 6. Step by Step ===== 
 +{{:venus-os:garmin-gx_1.jpg?nolink|}} 
 +{{:venus-os:garmin-gx_2.jpg?nolink|}} 
 +{{:venus-os:garmin-gx_3.jpg?nolink|}}

 +{{:venus-os:garmin-gx_5.jpg?nolink|}} 
 +{{:venus-os:garmin-gx_6.jpg?nolink|}} 
 + 
 +===== 7. NMEA 2000 ===== 
 + 
 +The MFD can also be connected to the GX device using NMEA 2000, see [[https://www.victronenergy.com/live/ccgx:start#marine_mfd_integration_by_nmea_2000|NMEA2000 chapter in the main manual]]. 
 + 
 +The MFD can be configured easily to display the data from the GX device. There is no need to change any instance.\\ 
 +To setup NMEA 2000 on the MFD, go to //Settings > Communications > NMEA 2000 Setup > Device List//. Here you can view information about the connected products and change their names. Note that the names are stored on the MFD and not on the NMEA 2000 device. 
 + 
 +The following Victron related PGNs are supported: 
 +  * 127505 - Fluid level (tanks) 
 +  * 127506 - DC Detailed Status; State-of-charge, Time-to-go 
 +  * 127508 - Battery Status; Voltage, current 
 + 
 +The supported PGNs may vary per model. Please consult the manual of the MFD for a list of supported PGNs.
