 +===== 7. NMEA 2000 =====
 +
 +The MFD can also be connected to the Victron system using NMEA 2000, see the [[ve.can:nmea-2000:start|]].
 +
 +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.
