Used to have a small GPS mounted near the transom. It was a PITA to look from where you were going down and back to the unit, then back up at where you were going. If there's no other option, it will work, but a unit more in-line with your normal line of sight would be well worth it.

Makes sense. So I should prob end up mounting to a cooler or something.

A small mini-console-shaped box with non-see-thru windscreen (for protection) would do. Could also house the battery (assuming you have one.) If it were me, I'd leave a little space for a VHF as well.
