Howdy!!! I found the Garmin 182C is

6.18 " High X 6.3 " WIDE X 2.6 " DEEP

I imagine the Eagle F.F.is a little smaller.

I need to know if there will be enough room?

Thank you very MUCH !!! Dan from Delaware

I have a Garmin 182 and a Furuno LS6100 on top of my console. There is no room to flush mount compass anymore.

So that means you took out the Richie Compass!!!

What did you use to cover the Hole in the Console???

My boat does not have the fishing package so it did not come with a compass.

HC- I [i]think[/] that you'll be able to mount both but it will be tight. One would go on the right side cantered to center and the other would go in the center behind the flush mount receptacle for the light post. The latter is the one that might give you trouble as the space between the light mount and the wind screen is questionable because of the rear tilt of the windscreen. This limits the height of the electronics mounted there. Hope you understand what I said...Jim

I would also prefer separate units for each electronic function. However, locating electronic units that closely together may affect their performance. If you have not bought yet, you may want to consider a combination GPS/FF unit like the Garmin 188C.

Dan,

You may want to look into a Ram mounting system for maximum console flexibility.
www.ram-mount.com.

I mounted my Garmin 240 fish finder directly to the console and then found the Ram system when mounting my GPS (handheld).

The system is essentially a small circular base with a ball injection molded onto a marine grade aluminum post. A ball the same size is attached to a holder for your electronics. A socket that grips both mounting balls is available in different lengths.

I was pleased with the adjustability and stability. Though not unhappy with my fishfinder mounting, eventually it will be changed to this Ram system.

Matt
