M421 Flush Mount Template

Jon - how come the flush mount template provided in the manual for the M421 is completely wrong?! Itís the old version for the M401 and therefore fairly useless. The dimensions on the diagram are correct for the M421 but the diagram itself doesn't match those dimensions.

I have just made one for myself - itís on my website if anyone wants it. Make sure you don't have any page scaling on when you print it out. Download Here

Mine came with an Eratum slip. Look for a bit of pale yellow paper in the box.

The dimensions in the book are correct but the printed "hole" is wrong.
Mark it out to the dimensions given and you will be OK. Luckily the template is too small and can be made larger. Imagine if they printed the 601 template.

We were made aware of this just be for Christmas.
All dealers should be aware of it by now and advising accordinly.

As stated there is an extra sheet in all M421 boxes now advising of correct sizing.

It is also on our website as a download.

Funny thing is of all the M421 that have been sold since September we have only recived a small number of phone calls regarding this from end users!

Hope it did not cause to much of a drama for you.

Regards

Cost of flush mount brackets?

Was very pleased with the cost of the M421 bought at the boat show but looked in the box and no flush mount brackets included!

Had to buy these as a separate item that cost £23!!!!! two pieces of bent stainless and some machine screws.


I think that if the dashboard bracket is included in the box then so should the flush mount kit.

What has everyone else been paying?

Well if we included it we would have to make them out of cheap and nasty plastic like some people do and they would not last!

Mind you I aware aware it is possible to cut and use the bracket supplied as a flush moount kit.
Lot of boat builders do it, so I understand!

Of course I can not recomend it myself!!!!!

Regards

Only wasted a few sheets of paper and a trip to the garage. No little yellow sheet in my box - can't find it on the web either. Doesn't matter though.

I'm using my old M401 flush mount brackets, but I think I paid around £20 for them a few years back.


Jon - I have tried downloading the M421 PDF docs off the ICOM site from uni and home and they keep being reported as corrupt (leaflet and manual).
