VE.Can to NMEA2000 - What data?

I bought a VE.Can to NMEA2000 cable. thinking it would show me lots of data, now I'm not so sure, and as Cerbo GX is limited to 2 Can connections only, I'm tempted to dispense with it.

I currently have a Multiplus and a REC BMS, connected, what data would these provide over NMEA2000 that I can not see already?

multiplus ve.busNMEA 2000 - N2K

@Jokani,

this cable primarily use case is to connect your Victron GX device to any NMEA 2000 network to share its data and make it useable for example by an MFD.

The Cerbo GX share almost every available info of its connected devices, like SmartShunt, MPPT, Inverter/Charger and so on. So basically you make this data available for your RV or Boat network and work with it.

Hope this helps.
