Burty's right, electronic trim gauges are poo. Loads of hysteresis, I mean absolutely loads, mine tells me when the engine is trimmed right up for launching and recovering or right down for going along and thats about it. However I've never bothered fitting a new sender so I guess that may make it a bit better

Taz does your electronic trim gauge use the sender built into the midsection. Mine isnt very accurate as the engine has to move a fair way before the gauge moves so its no good at telling me exactly where the engine is when driving along.

Yes when i had my 275 merc i used the gauge with the sender thats fitted in the mid section. i never had any trouble with it when i sold the engine i whipped the sender out to

Now i havent got room for any more gauges only the basics
