Can anyone tell me what is being used to double mount their graphs on the console? I see alot of the pros using a double mounted graph and was curious as to how it is being mounted.

Thanks
Paul

There are a few companies that make a dash mount to do that. Here is two of them:

I have used both of those Wayne mentioned. I actually like the Bass Boat Technologies mount for the console and the Precision Sonar for the bow on my old boat. I'm getting a new boat rigged right now with BBT for console and bow. They are both great products.




My previous boat already had a Ram Mount on the side of the console so I mounted a single BBT ount to get a second graph:

I've got the BBT single mount on the console and the Precision up front, had both for over 3 years, work great.

Cant go wrong with the Bass Boat Technologies mounts, they perform well and Van is great to deal with if you have any questions. I had dual mounts on my 14 & 15 Skeeters and both my 16 & 17 Legends, never had an issue out of any of them.

Nice looking set up, are they all networked and running off a single transducer?

These are Humminbird Helix's and all networked together with the HB ethernet box mounted under the console.
Of the 2 units on the console, one unit is an SI and the other is the "plain" version without SI or DI. The bow unit has DI. I think I got all that right. So I have a SI transducer on the transom which runs to the SI unit on the console. I also have a through-the-hull transducer glassed in which runs to the "plain" unit on the console which I use only for GPS and my Lakemaster mapping and allows me to have depth readings on plane.

I also have the Ulterra trolling motor (which I love) with a built in sonar transducer but I still haven't decided how much I like it. One problem is that I have the 60-inch shaft which means my bow graph will tell me my depth is only 2 feet when it's actually 4-5 feet. This is because the transducer is 60 inches down below the deck and closer to the bottom of the lake than my SI transducer under the jackplate which sits inches from water level. I can raise the Ulterra up slowly and watch my depth go 2...3...4...
On the other hand, it's sometimes nice to know if my trolling motor is about to start grinding on the bottom.

I was worried that two 12-inch graphs on the console would stick out into the middle of the boat. And with a dual console, I could easily get my beer gut hung up on the graphs while trying to squeeze through and get up to the front deck. But it turned out great and this is a photo from the bow showing that the two 12-inch screens don't stick out any further than the console mount:

Thanks Toofy, I'm just starting to investigate the whole networking thing. One of the youtube videos I watched, stated that both units will act and operate the same, even if they are different units. Can your "plain" unit on dash, use side imaging feature even though it's not manufactured as SI unit,( just because it's networked?)

That's a great question that I used to know the answer to (thanks to Wayne on this forum and he's also on the BassBoatCentral forum) but I can't remember right now because with 2 graphs I just leave one set on the GPS map and my other shows SI. One important thing to know about the Humminbird Helix units is that map cards will NOT share. I have a lakemaster card in my plain GPS unit and another (same) card in my bow unit. I often have the bow unit on split screen to show the map on one side and sonar on the other.

I run both BBT (console) and Precision Sonar (bow) mounts, both very good products.

I think i have settled on the BBT Dual at the console for my HDS 12s and put my in dash HDS7 in the front.

Here is my setup now. 12 in front, 12 on side and 7 in console.
Do you guys know of any coupon codes or anything? Its asking to apply coupon...Any lil bit helps! smile
