I used this as it was $20 less than the Garmin equivalent. With a mixed T configuration, I just connected a Lowrance T connector to a Garmin T and twisted the Garmin so that the T's would now both flush mount.

NMEA2000 is a spec, so all vendors use the same wiring pinouts. Use the one that saves you the $$$.

    Comments about Lowrance NMEA 2000 Network Starter Kit:

    This item was very easy to install. I was able to to hook up several devices to each other with this starter kit. I would recommend this item to a friend, but I would suggest purchasing from a different place due to the extremely slow shipping.

    Service and delivery comments:

    It took 10 days for this item to reach my house. West Marine uses Fed Ex smart ship, which is slower than the postal service. If you want this item sooner than a week, buy from somewhere else.

      Switched over from Humminbird/Minnkota terrova to the Lowrance/motor guide xi5 setup. This kit is needed and worked perfect to work as the backbone. I also added a 2nd hds unit and this startup kit was easy to add to.

      Service and delivery comments:

      West marine's delivery was fast and package was protected very well.

                WM has problems with the pictures on thier website - this is the second product I have purchased that did not look at all like the picture on the website. From an ecommerce point of view that is a serious issue they really need to address.

                  I purchased the sonic hub and found out I needed the backbone. Installed easily and works great. Now I can easily install other components like a fuel flow sensor Sirius satellite radio just by adding a tee. Great network

                      Comments about Lowrance NMEA 2000 Network Starter Kit:

                      This kit will allow you to connect one NEMA device. One T-connector is used for power and the 2nd to a NEMA device. If you are adding more devices, you will need additional T-connectors. It is a starter kit and most likely you will need to buy additional parts. However, the price of the kit is less than buying these items individually. I gave four stars because there were no instructions. I had to contact Lowrance to figure out what I needed to do.

                      Product was on backorder, but received in a reasonable amount of time.
