Thank you for your comments regarding the gasket My point was not to keep water off the set, which is waterproof (my main reason for buying it, and very pleased I am!), but to keep my console dry I will need to seal around the radio. As suggested, a piece of rubber is only a few pence. The flush mount kit is £25.
Surely it would make sense to include an expanded rubber gasket or similar. I do not want to fix my radio with sikaflex (although might make it theft proof although I suppose they will take the whole boat instead! :
) as it is likely there will be a need to take it out for some reason in the future. It just seems to me that a flush mount kit should include a waterproof gasket.
With regards to connecting to the garmin 182c and the phono plugs do they need to be grounded your previous email seemed to indicate that this was not necessary It is a good idea to take a feed from the black lead of the Garmin to the outer of the Phono plugs
Is this the case? Thanks in advance
