Garmin® Introduces New Transducer Mount for Kayaks
OLATHE, Kan./February 11, 2015 – Garmin is pleased to announce the addition of an in-hull transducer mount built specifically with kayak fishermen in mind. With the In-Hull Kayak Mount, users can mount a transducer inside the hull of a kayak, an ideal installation method for this type of boat, for use with a Garmin fishfinder or GPS/sonar combo.
This versatile, easy-to-install mounting solution will work with nearly any type of kayak. It’s compatible with transducers that support all current Garmin echo fishfinders and echo portable kits, as well as the echoMAP “dv” GPS/sonar combos and some GPSMAP® GPS/sonar combos. The in-hull mount protects Garmin HD-ID™ traditional or GT20 transducers from scrapping against the many obstructions that kayak fishermen face on the water. When selecting a compatible transducer, users can choose a dual-beam HD-ID transducer or a DownVü transducer for an ultra-clear sonar picture of objects, structure and fish that pass below the boat. For more information about compatible transducers, visit www.garmin.com/transducers.
Installation of the In-Hull Kayak Mount is quick and easy and doesn’t require tools. Simply attach the adhesive backing to the hull, fill the pocket created between the pad and the hull with water, and place the transducer in the pocket to remove the air. Once installed, the mount has the ability to withstand continuous water submersion without releasing.
The In-Hull Kayak Mount is scheduled to be available in the second quarter of 2015 for a suggested retail price of $19.99. For more information, visit www.garmin.com/marine.
