    Easy plug and play upgrade. Photos and diagrams attached with part numbers.
    Very nice having everything connected via nmea 2000. Lots of info from vv also.
    took about 3 hours and 4 beers. image001 (1).png image004.png image003.png image005.png image001.png 20180915_123106.jpg 20180915_123045.jpg 20180915_125156.jpg 20180915_144819.jpg 20180915_130353.jpg

    Craig, I had my smartcraft out today installing a new vhf radio. The sc50000 has 2 big connectors, do you just remove those and plug them right into the vessel View? If so, what are all the other connectors for? If not, do those big sc5000 connectors get thrown out and now you use the new VV connectors?

    Yes. That harness comes out completely. The new harness plugs into the new link module, junction boxes, guages and nmea 2k backbone. sounds like a lot
    but it is pretty easy.

    Okay, so the new harness plugs directly into the smartcraft junction boxes, which is/are behind the instrument array in the third picture, and has the green and red tape, and a purple connector plugged in, along with some yellow wires plugged in the back? I did not see the smartcraft junction boxes called out in the diagram, so that’s what I am missing. Thanks again, extremely helpful!

    Okay, doing more research, and I see the kit comes with the VesselView Link module, did not realize that, and I see that in your picture above as well. I have seen other diagrams with the VVlink module and how it connects to the NMEA 2k network, so I think I have it now.

    Is the sc5000 display still good? I have a dock neighbor looking for one...

    Craig,
    What brand are your multi-port connectors for your NMEA 2K backbone? I can really only find the garmin, but it is only 4 ports, and yours appear to be 5 (or 4 with a terminator), yours appear to be flat and mounted, where as the garmin one appears round, and not easily mounted.
    Are these two connected, hard to tell, but it appears the cable on left end might be connected to the other multi-port, bridging the two together.
    There is an additional T connector, I assume this is a spare, does not appear to be connected, circled in red.

    Yes on the spare. I added the second multi port for this install. Both multi ports are connected. I now have 6 devices on the network. That is Raymarine Seatalkng stuff. Compatible with nmea 2000 but needs an extra pigtail adapter. Those little adapters and multi ports are expensive.

    I have a fresh screened SC 5000 that I just pulled for an upgrade. Asking $1,000. I pulled it from my 2005 420 DA this week. PM me if interested.
