BerleyPro Garmin SideVu Ready Transducer Mount (Suits Hobie®)
The ultimate transducer mount to use your Garmin SideVu fishfinder/graph on your Hobie kayak. This transducer mount keeps your transducer directly under you giving you the best sidescan image and no extra drag and lost speed from having your transducer hanging down to one side.
The Garmin SideVu transducer mount is designed to fit in the existing Lowrance Ready location on the base of Hobie® kayaks. This product will mount and cover the SideVu transducers which come with the Garmin range providing protection and also maintaining a crisp image with SideVu and DownVu. The ABS plastic is designed to protect the transducer from the scratching and damage which comes with normal kayak use.
This product will mount and cover the following Garmin transducers:
- Garmin GT40-TM
- Garmin GT41-TM
- Garmin GT50M-TM
- Garmin GT51M-TM
- Garmin GT52HW-TM
- Garmin GT54UHD-TM
- Garmin GT56UHD-TM
Benefits of this transducer mount:
- Made from 3mm Thermoformed plastic to provide a tough protective cover for your expensive transducer
- Easy installation
- Accurate water temp
- Great Sidescan and Downscan image with no noticeable degradation
Comes with stainless steel fasteners.
Please note: This mount will sit below the base of your Hobie kayak. It is not designed to carry the weight of your kayak while you are driving so please ensure you prop up the sides with something so it doesn’t cause damage around the screws and brass inserts.
One of a kind!
I own a Hobie Compass and spent a loooooong time researching which fishfinder to get, finally landing on a Garmin with a transducer that supports side scanning. But… the space built into the Compass is internal, so that would nix the side scanning capabilities. After spending another looooong time researching options online and coming up empty, the BerleyPro mount wasn’t just the obvious choice, it was the only one that would fit the transducer space on my yak. It was easy to install, reasonably priced, and I know it will last a long time! I also own a keel guard from BerleyPro and there’s barely a scuff on it, and I use that guard to my advantage a lot! So if you have a Hobie with the Lowrance-ready transducer space and want to use it for a Garmin side scanning transducer, look no further! This is it! I will say that since the mount sticks out - which obviously is necessary for side scanning - I built a PVC rig to transport my yak in my truck so there isn’t any pressure on the mount or the hull. Worth the investment of time and energy!
The unit was not a perfect fit. Did not fit the impression on my hobie outback perfectly. It was ordered correctly as verified by customer service. I am using it and my garmin unit is working with it.
Nice Side View Garmin Mount
I really like the mount and so far I’ve had no issues loading or unloading my kayak with the mount installed.
