Better Connected™ Yamaha Command Link Speedometer to NMEA 2000 Network Adapter Cable (Free Shipping*)

CAD $249.99

If the GPS related equipment in your boat only has an NMEA 2000 network connection, but you have installed the Yamaha CommandLink 6Y8 series Speedometer (square or round), this cable is what you need to make the Speedometer display speed from the data coming over the NMEA 2000 network.

One example of this type of situation is using the Yamaha CommandLink 6Y8 Speedometer with a Raymarine Element Fish Finder.  The Raymarine Element does not have a NMEA 0183 output.  Some Lowrance Elite series as well.  There are others as well.

Please note that this is a build to order item and lead time is approximately one week.

We only use the best quality and safest cable and components in our manufacturing.  Please check out the details of our manufacturing quality in the photos.

If your chart or fish finder does not have an NMEA 0183 connection, you can still use our Yamaha Command Link Speedometer to NMEA 2000 Network Adapter Cable to display speed on a Yamaha Digital Speedometer.

Although the Yamaha Speedometer can display a number of parameters from the NMEA 2000 network in your boat, for some reason, the speed is only sensed on the 6 pin connector on the back of the speedometer via an older, 2 wire, NMEA 0183 connection.

Fixing this problem is possible, but very time consuming.  We’ve completely figured this out for you, and can provide this one cable that fixes this issue, and will display a proper speed, as long as you have a fish finder or GPS putting out data on your NMEA 2000 network.

All of our NMEA cables use high quality PVC insulated cable, and the internal wiring contains both a shield for the outside cable jacket for durability and strength while you are installing it and to ensure long cable life.  The power pairs and signal pairs are also shielded to prevent interference between power and the signals.  There is also a separate ground “drain” wire in the middle of the cable to ensure a consistent ground signal level for the entire length of the cable.

You cannot buy a better NMEA cable for this price.

These cables come with a two year free, no questions asked replacement warranty.  See our warranty terms section on our website for details.
