The new VDO Sumlog gives boatbuilders the ability to provide six instrument readouts in a single helm footprint, says Jeffrey Ross, VDO instrumentation product manager.

The Sumlog, which is NMEA 0183-compatible and requires a mounting area measuring 1.97 inches in diameter and 3.35 inches deep, is the latest addition to VDO’s Viewline Instrument Series. The heart of the VDO gauge is the 60-mph speedometer.

The unit also accepts GPS and multifunction signals to display as many as five more functions, including water temperature, depth, distance traveled, voltage and time of day. Five LED indicators can be programmed for OEM-specific functions, and a central connector makes for quick installations. A built-in 1.46-inch-by-0.43-inch amber LCD displays all data except for speed. The unit is available in white or black faces and can be flush- or panel-mounted. Suggested list price is $228.
