We have a 36 foot Uniflite and would like to integrate a pair of Maretron TLM150 tank level senders with our existing Garmin 541s GPSMAP and sounder. Where do I configure the fuel level senders?

Hi Bob,

Unfortunately, the Maretron TLM150 senders cannot be initially configured by the Garmin 541s. You need to use Maretron’s DSM-250 multi-function display to accomplish this. At the shop, we use a DSM-250 just for that purpose. Once the tank level senders are configured, you can use the Garmin 541s to calibrate the level of the tank as you fill and empty it.
