    GPS Hardwire Install

    Finished installing the hardwire hookup to my Garmin Montana. I installed Blue Sea Charts and Lakes and Rivers, so I have just about everything covered. Used a Deutsch connector so that I can remove it and replace it with a stock cover or another powered device.

    Looks great, super clean too. I always envied the SHO because of that cup holder and how many neat things you can do with it (mount a gps, gopro, etc)

    Yeah, I have another cap with just a ram ball on it so I can mount my GoPro.

    Love this. I am getting a Cruiser HO and I have been thinking on where I could mount a GPS.

    Nice job

    That's a nice neat install.

    I have my Gopro mounted on the storage lid & my Montana mounted onto the handle bar boss.

    I see that RAM make a mount to fit inside a cup holder, has anyone used one of these? I am thinking of mounting a compass there.

    Haven't used that specific mount, but RAM make great products.

    That's a great setup FDHog. Any reason why you didn't mount the GPS from the cup holder with RAM mounts instead of the waterproof compartment? That way you can keep your waterproof compartment intact.

    Best place to get some replacement/alternative caps?

    Finally found it. Had to look under parts diagram for a SHO. Nowhere on the HO parts list.

    F1W-U591C-01-00 Cap Case 2.88 each

    Ordered 3 and 3 of the gasket (or packing case) at boats.net

    Yamaha parts store was too expensive on shipping
