The Garmin 750 is a great bit of kit, especially when linked to engine/fuel as its useful to have range etc. never had a problem in heavy rain I guess it depends on the angle of the console. My gloves didn't work on it though soma pain in winter. Also I wish it had two in and out zoom proper buttons, widely spaced apart so wobbly bouncy hands would work without having to throttle off to touch the screen accurately. Good kit for the price though.

Lowrance and Simrad are owned by the same parent company. Not Raymarine. At least as far as I know...

I have taken the plunge and bought a shiny new Garmin 750. Hoping to flush fit it this weekend. There are gaskets, however I was wondering if the anyone has any advice on using some Sikaflex aswell. I guess it makes it difficult to remove, but I can't see why I ever would want to. Hopefully Sikaflex would not effect the unit itself.

Thoughts?

hi, we've got the Garmin 4008, just a bit bigger than the 750, which came with similar gaskets, we've had no problems with the gasket and seem to do the job, not sure I'd use Sikaflex as that may give too good a seal and be difficult to remove if needed, if you want to improve the gasket why not clear silicone mastic that at least allows a bit of give

What Chris said - it will damage the unit if you ever have to take it out again!

thanks Cookee, when I posted I did think I might get shot down in flames, you know what it's like on here I did also mean to add be very careful with your measurements, there's not much room for error with the size of cutout, it's a definite measure it twice cut it once job

Warranty repair work? Use a light dab of bathroom silicone of you must - it peels off gel easily.
