I am on a Lagoon 2013 catamaran and was wondering if anybody has configured NMEA2000 integration between a Cerbo GX and an older Raymarine system running Lighthouse II (ie., no Glassbridge software)? If so was it worth the cost and effort? #LighthouseII
I have several Raymarine Axiom+ MDF screens in my boat. The Cerbo is connected via Ethernet and NMEA to the system. There is a problem with the NMEA 2k network when the Cerbo is connected. If I try recording NMEA messages via the MDF, the MDF crashes after approximately 1 minute. The same happens if the engine gateway is sending data. (Powered up). All the other devices on the NMEA network does not cause this behaviour, meaning that if the Cerbo and/or engine gateway is off, the system is stable and MDF does not crash during NMEA messages logging/recording.
Raymarine thinks this has something to do with the Cerbo. The Cerbo is running firmware 2.9 large.
Any advice is much appreciated.
I have connected my CerboGX to my Raymarine Axiom with the Raynet cable and the Victron App on the Axiom works fine.
I’m wondering if it is possible to get the data from the various tanks on the NMEA system from the Axiom to appear on the Cerbo Touch?
Essentially, can I get data from Axiom to CerboGX as well as the other way round through the Raynet cable?
When I try to connect to the Cerbo GX using the Victron app on the Raymarine Axiom MFD I get a connection error "no hardware found" and the application does not start.
The Cerbo GX is connected to the NMEA2000 network using a Victron VE.Can to NMEA2000 cable and the Raymarine Axiom MFD is connected to the same NMEA2000 network. The NMEA2000 network works fine and is properly terminated. Since the Axiom is connected to an Quantum 2 rader with cable the Axiom must connect to the Cerbo GX through the NMEA2000 network.
The NMEA network diagnostic screen on the Axion shows not only the Cerbo GX. But also all the devices connected to the Cerbo GX with VE.CAN, VE.Bus or VE.Direct. Attached is the NMEA2000 network diagnostics from the Axiom listing all the NMEA2000 devices as well as the Victron devices that the Axiom can find on the NMEA2000 network.
- The Raymarine Axiom is running the latest lighthouse operating system (v3.13.103 Edgartown)
- The NMEA2000 network is powered separately and the fuse in the VE.Can to NMEA2000 cable is removed
- The Raymarine Axiom can see the Cerbo GX on the NMEA2000 network (and all devices connected to the Cerbo GX, including tanks)
- The Cerbo GX and all connected Victron devices are all running the latest firmware
- All data from the Cerbo GX are visible on the NMEA2000 netowork and can be displayed in other ways such as webguages with yachtdevices wifi gateway
- On the Cerbo GX: one VE.Can port has a VE.Can terminator and the other VE.Can port is connected to the NMEA2000 network using the VE.Can to NMEA2000 cable
- The NMEA2000 network is a Raymarine SeaTalkNG network
- The VE.Can to NMEA2000 cable is connected to a SeaTalkNG<->NMEA2000 cable that is connected to a "white" device port on a Raymarine 5-way
Cerbo VE.Can port settings:
- CAN-bus profile: VE.Can & Lynx Ion BMS 250 kbit/s,
- NMEA2000-out: Enabled

I have several devices in nk2 networks that send battery data such as Multiplus, MPPT, rec-bms and smart shunnt. Without modifications, only two batteries will appear on Raymarine instruments. (I have 3 battery banks) Based on testing to display battery data correctly on Raymarine, we have used a programmable interface and changed "device instance" and "data instance" to see how data is presented on Raymarine display. Changing the device instance as described in the Victron GX manual chapter 11.5.4 does not change anything on Raymarine instruments! (Tried this from the venus os menu as well) When we change the data instance, the battery is presented correctly. This was also the case on thread eg posted about 1 year ago about data instance. The question is why device instance is made available in menu on Venus os and manual describe that change of data instance is not recommended?
Anyone have experiences to share that can confirm this? Do other manufacturers use device instance for numbering batteries?
I have read several posts and the manual but I still can't make sense of how to get the Cerbo data to display on either my Raymarine I70 or Axiom display!
i have the app working through the Raynet cable which is nice but I also have the NMEA cable wired from Cerbo to the Seatalk NG network (NMEA2000).
I am looking to get tanks and battery data out.
I can see everything listed on the under the NMEA listings on the Axiom but can find them when i tr to add to a new page.
I have read several posts on here regarding changing Device instances on the Cerbo or having to telnet into the Cerbo and change the Data instances i find the manual rather ambiguous!
has anyone done it and can give me an idiots guide please?
I am connecting to our new quarto 8kw inverter/charger to our Raymarine Axiom MFD. We have the RayNet connector plugged into the MFD, however the question is can we plug the Raynet cable from the Raymarine into a network switch, then an ethernet cable from the GX colour controller into the same network?
I would like to be able to continue the using the Victron online app and have it run through the Raymarine MFD's if possible.
Cerbo can send NMEA data to Raymarine, but is it possible to display data from Raymarine NMEA2000 network on Cerbo GX and from there further to VRM? Eg. wind, gps or other data.
I have just installed a new Axiom MFD on my boat and connected the Cerbo GX via NMEA2000. I am able to see the house battery voltages correctly, but. I cannot see the Aux battery voltage. It is displaying 39-40v and it should be ~13v. Do I need to change the PGNs on the Cerbo to make this work on the Axiom?

I,ve read the Raymarine MFD integration docs, but had a question regarding the cheaper series than the Axiom versions. (Element HV and Element S versions)
Will they ever get supported ? First of all, the price is quitte big for the Axiom versions. Second, I do like the way that the E and the S series have physical buttons. I,ve tried some of the displays of Raymarine an a large boat shop in Zaandam (NL), but like the versions with physical buttons more.
PS, the Axiom Pro does have buttons, but that`s the most expensive of all versions.
Greetings and have a nice weekend
Already two years ago, we launched the first version of our Marine MFD App. Sometimes referred to as glass bridges, HTML5 or Chartplotter App.
See the screenshot below for which user interface I mean.
This app is due for improvement. I know that many people have ideas on how it could be better, as do I myself. And I have hired an external company to design the new version, and they’d like to run a questionnaire.
Do note that the scope is very specifically to run it on a Marine MFD. And while well aware that it can also be used for different applications, and run on a tablet, or phone, and as such in an RV or Off-grid or other mobile and stationary application, those uses are out of scope for now. There is another plan going on for those. So please lets keep this focussed on marine use, thank you.
Here is a link to the questionnaire we’d like to be completed by as many boating users as possible:
If you know someone not on community, please share this with them. Its not needed to have a Community user account.
And also welcome to put comments in the answers and comments below. The UX designer will follow this question, its @B_Wltrs.
Thank you and have a good weekend!
Ps. here is a screenshot of the app. And more documentation is here:
I have two BMV-700s hooked up via VE.direct to a Cerbo GX. I have the Cerbo GX integrated with a Raymarine Axiom 7 via the network port AND VE.can. I can access both BMV-700s via the Victron App on the Axiom. I can get only one of the BMV-700s to populate the Battery 1 data box on the Axiom. I can't get either BMV-700 to populate the Battery 2 data box on the Axiom. I read the instructions and can change the data instance of each BMV-700, but I can't change the instance to 1. I can change the instance to 2,3,9, or 0, but I can't change it to 1. I used Actisence NMEA Reader and a NGT-1 to change data instances. All equipment and software has been updated to the latest rev.
The eS & gS Series multifunction displays which have been upgraded to LightHouse 3 are not compatible.
Question, can I get the sensordata from my Raymarine-units to my Color Control GX via the Ethernet-network or is this only one way?
