Thanks for the advice, I think I will leave it and see how the gaskets alone work out. Slightly nervous to be cutting a big hole in the console, but as you say, measure twice, cut once. I plan to stay well inside the template and finish off with a file if needed.

The touchscreen would seem to make controling it a lot easier than the old rocker switch. .But what is it like in the real world? Are they reliable? Anyone had any real experience with a touchscreen? I got a budget of around 600 any suggestions would be great!
I have the Garmin 750 touchscreen & think they are a great unit mine is flush fitted did it myself easy to fit, you get a stick on template with the unit so just find a suitable place to put it on the console then cut away I used a drill to make a hole then hacksaw blade to cut round the template took about 30 mins to fit

Just remember to make sure you have left space to fit & tighten the mounts inside...

Admittedly my instrument pod is likely more cramped than your console!

The new NSS evo2 units look very nice and have some buttons on them.

Slightly o/t, and not touch screen, but I am thinking of the Garmin 557xs for my Rib, any one using this, and have any views on it.?.

Thought I would post a pic of my Garmin 750 plotter which I installed at the weekend. Very pleased with it.

looks good, think the 750 is just a bit too big for my SR4 console, but maybe rethink when steering is fitted
