    I don't want to do the in dash mount behind the steering wheel. My dealer has sent me some options. This is the only one that I sorta like. What switches are being blocked behind this mounting option? (I don't have the boat yet so I don't know)

    I might just get them to run the wires and figure out where I want it when I get it home fish finder.jpg

    update, the switches are, Livewell ( I don't have), horn and docking lights

    I think this may be my best option.

    I saw something once that someone had something that went in where the cupholder hole is. Then if you ever sell there is no holes in the helm. That would also allow it to be over more for access to switches.

    I can't tell if yours are lighted though.

    I wanted mine on the right side, since I'm right handed. There was a 12v outlet there, and an "accessory" (phone jack thingy) installed on the left side. I swapped the locations, and put the 12v outlet on the left, and drilled out the one on the right for the cables and installed the ball to mount the RAM mount on. My RAM mount has the 4" arm, and it keeps it about eye level, above all the switches, and below the PTM mirror. Quick disconnect for theft prevention too. Not home right now, but I'll try to post a picture later. Works great.
