    Electronics set-ups on your Tin (pics please)

    There's been a few different posts in the past regarding electronics set-ups. I have a couple buddies looking for ideas on what they need, and what type of set-up to use. Let's see your Bow and Console pics.....I'll start

    Bow Unit -

    Lowrance Elite 7ti - Downscan / Sonar / Chart - Mount was made custom at 6" high so I could still use my cup and tool holders (PM if you have any questions on it)





    Console Units -

    In Dash - Lowrance Elite 7ti Totalscan

    RAM Mount - Hook 5 / Navionics + Chip - No transducer hooked up, GPS / Chart ONLY


    2016 Ranger RT 188 - Charcoal / Dark Cherry
    2016 Mercury 115 Fourstroke - Laser II 20p
    Minn Kota Fortrex 80lb.
    Lowrance Elite 7Ti Chartplotter/Sonar/Downscan (Bow)
    Lowrance Elite 7Ti Charplotter/Sonar/Total Scan (Dash) - Nautic Insight Pro
    Lowrance Hook 5 GPS Only (RAM mounted on console) - Navionics +
    V-T2 Live well vents
    (2) Loc-R-Bar / Custom brackets from Bream Metals
    BTO Trailer steps / Bow graph mount

    Wayne, how did you mount your transducers? Do they have to be a certain distance apart or does it matter?

    Here is what I did on my RT188. Helix 12 on a BBT mount at the bow with a 360 mounted on the Fortrex. At the console I have a Helix 10 SI/DI/GPS and a Helix 10 with 2D/GPS both on a BBT dual mount. The BBT mounts are a great product and easy to install. I don't have a picture of it but I mounted the 5 port Ethernet hub under the dash against the outside of the storage compartment in front of the console.

    At the wheel: Dek-IT side by side mount with a 998 HD and a 898.

    Bow: 1199 HD with a bow mount 360 (not shown)

    I have two HB switches one in the front and one in the back linked together to link all of my units together as well as the 360.

    I have various ways to attach a transducer to the transom. Currently, the ONIX SI transducer is the only one solidly attached to the transom.
    I use retractable transducer holders for the others. Sometimes I will have four transducers at the transom plus the shoot-thru Alumaducer.
    I test stuff.

    Typically I do not run sonar with the ONIX and 1198 at the same time at the console. Just had both on for the picture.
    Sometimes I connect two 1198's and share a single SI transducer.
