ICON control system 
Evinrude ICON system is the 'fly buy wire' control system and was used on motors 2008 to 2014 , it was available as an upgrade for motors with standard controls or was available as a factory fit option , this system was developed in cooperation with Teleflex has its own ICON diagnostics system and is completely separate to the V5.engine diagnostics system
ICON uses the same MPI-2/3 interface used in the BUDS system for a while now and cable together with diagnostics software that uses a licence key system to unlock - just like BUDS!! , ICON works on the CAN protocol but you can still use the older V5 series diagnostics on the motor 
we are working on ICON cable and licence keys now
Evinrude V6 diagnostics 
Starting with the new G2 series motors these came standard with a 'fly by wire' control system  and just like the ICON system uses the MPI-2/3 interface and licence key system to unlock the V6 software , just like all new BRP products Evinrude V6 works on the CAN protocol and is a combined system for monitoring both the motor and control systems  , this is unlike the old V5 system that was just motor monitoring only
