On reflection, I expect you'd have offset the engine instruments to the port side of the console and had the chartplotter in front of the helm?

Garmin struggling to find the Quick Release Flush Mount Kit. Pretty rubbish service as this is an accessory described in the manual. They think they have them in the states but the unit has a hole in the centre which seems daft to me as when you remove it there will be a gaping hole leaving electrics open to elements. (as opposed to a solid back with sealed holes for wires and clips to attach the GPS).

I may just go for Flush mount permanently fitted near the centre of the console.

Another thought I had was to bracket mount on the console where the flush mount would go, but using some sort of ledge built into the front of the console. This would:

1) Allow removal of unit for security and programming.
2) Allow driver or passenger to view on swivel.
3) Maintain good visibility with nothing blocking view through windscreen.

Thoughts, or am I just faffing too much over trivia.
