SmartCraft DTS offered as a boatbuilder option on the 496 models (single- and twin-engine applications). # The 555 control module enables boat manufacturers to offer state-of-the-art digital information displays like the Mercury-exclusive SC5000 System View, a small computer screen that allows the driver to easily monitor and verify
