A Suzuki Marine promotion run during the national boat show circuit has been rewarding show-going Suzuki outboard buyers with an upgrade from a standard rigging kit to Garmin interfaced electronics. The interfaced electronics communicate directly with the engine and report in real time on fuel usage and other crucial engine data.
This promotion has now gone national for Australia and New Zealand and is available at any Suzuki Marine dealership during the month of September (see below for full terms and conditions).
When interfaced with Garmin electronics Suzuki outboard owners will receive “litres per hour” figures question with total accuracy. Better than that they also answer the really important question of “nautical miles per hour” by combining fuel usage with GPS speed. This shows a boat’s efficiency at covering distance rather than time. Therefore as time goes on the database is getting bigger and personal experience of the incredible fuel consumption (or lack of it) is more widespread.
As well as the benefits of knowing how little fuel you are using there are important safety benefits from having an accurate fuel reading. The Suzuki can deliver your range based on how you are driving, your average litres per hour and much more including water temperature, depth and position (with relevant sensors). All from a full colour display.
So what does the customer get?
– Suzuki DF40A to DF60A rigging kit upgrades to 1x Garmin GMI10 & 1x GPS17
– Suzuki DF70A to DF140 rigging kit upgrades to 2x Garmin GMI10 & 1x GPS17
Note: Standard rig kit must be purchased with the engine in order to qualify for the upgrade.
