Tank 140 on CerboGX - Device instance NMEA2000 incorrect

My Raymarine MFD will not be able to handle a tank with a device instance greater than 5. My CerboGX currently gives my first tank on the Tank 140 a device instance as 10 on NMEA2000, and the second tank as 11. (I have an Actisense NGT-1)

Is there a way to amend these instance values to something Raymarine can understand?

Hi @DevoDave,

I also have a GX Tank 140 but not yet installed on my boat network with a Raymarine Axiom+. It should be possible to change the device instance in the Cerbo GX menu under Settings/Services/VE.Can-Port/Devices/ assuming the GX Tank 140 shows up there. You must ensure that no other tank sensor is using the same device instance.

Cheers for that. I edited the device instance on that setting back to 0 and 1, however they still don't appear on the Raymarine Axiom.
