Permanent handheld GPS holder - variation on an old theme

It had to be done, a more standard small boat setup for the GPS that is. This is as opposed to the improvised version we used last year (click to read) that was efficient but an obstacle to negotiate when using the companionway.

Connection to the main battery means a significant saving on AA’s.

The sprung catch underneath keeps the unit in place when folded back into the cabin.

The interface between the GPS and VHF is also set up, which means our position is automatically communicated should we ever have to push the panic button. Sorry about the action shot but you can just make out a position if you click the photo to enlarge.
