Hello all, Im curious get the vessel mobile thingy!  I dont see a lot of info on mercruisers 350s. They talk about the smart probe and wire somewhere behind the engine and remove the smart probe to connect the vessel app wire... anyways! I cant find that wire, it says it should be yellow or purple! I found a 10 pin purple wire close to the fire arrester but It has nothing attached to it! it s a 10 pin and it's labeled "CAN" but still unable to find it. I have not order the product until I find that wire and make sure it will work on my chaparral 260. thanks in advance

What year motor? As long as your engine is smartcraft enabled, you have the plug available. Are your gauges smartcraft, if so then you have a junction under your helm. Need some additional details.

mmmm well I'm assuming that the engine matches the year of the boat which is 2004. I believe this is avail to models after 2004.  Regular analog gauges! 5".

thanks!!!

You are going to remove the yellow cap and plug the pigtail into that. You must remove the black cap on the thinner shorter leg of the vessel view mobile and install the yellow cap onto that. That is the terminal resistor for the can network

oh ok! I see the RED Reset switch in the bottom left of the picture!  I also see the wire labeld there "CAN LINE" so... I should not be too far off from where Im looking at, If my engine has one, I should be able to see it there! I'll keep looking this week since the boat is at the yard. Thanks a lot!!!

Ok, so there's the end.  :scratchchin:   Any idea where this wire with the plug originates from? That would go a long way in helping me find it.  :rolleyes:

I had the same motor on a previous boat. It is Smartcraft enabled. IIRC the plug is under the motor cover nestled in wires about where that orange sticker is. Now I am going off of 10 year old memories....

hahaha awesome!!! thanks!!!
