Tach question

I recently installed a new tach as my old one was bad. It would still record hours but wouldn't give me the rpm reading.

New tach gives me rpm, but in the hours window says "No data detected".

Is my new tach not compatible with my boat?

How does the new tach record hours? Appears your tach is looking for info from dash controller. There are some threads here that cover dash operation - might not be compatible with MDC.

It's communicating to some degree as it is displaying the RPM's.

Any other thoughts?
Apparenlty another TT member is having the same issue; they sent me a PM asking if I had resolved this.
