Our Friday Feature is courtesy of Steven from Kawartha Lakes in Ontario. During the summer, Steven enjoys bringing his SeaDoo out on the water. To ensure he enjoys himself without getting lost, Steven decided to a mount his GPS handheld to his SeaDoo.
Steven explains, "I needed to attach my Garmin GPSMAP 78s to my GTX 155 touring SeaDoo so that I could navigate through the Trent Water system in Ontario Canada." The GPS handheld Steven chose, Garmin's GPSMAP 78s, is ideal for boaters and water enthusiasts. The 78s is IPX7 waterproof, has rubber side grips and even floats in the water. Additionally, the 3-axis compass, built-in worldwide basemap and clear color mapping allow Steven to navigate in water with ease.
To keep the GPSMAP 78s secure of his SeaDoo, Steven decided to add to a motorcycle mount he already owned. Steven added "one 4.75 inch double ball arm and arm mount medium B socket to be able to view the GPS without obstruction." Since Steven already had a motorcycle mount, he was able to easily add to the existing mount, making a longer customized arm for his SeaDoo.
In the end, Steven was happy with the result, saying, "It worked like a charm. Easily viewable over the handle bars. Made navigation easy." To see more pictures, read Steven's original post.
