Got my perspective mount in and installing it, the instructions suck and dont show an image actually mounted on the shaft.my question is this, when mounting the bracket the instructions say "if you store your motor with the propeller to the starboard side, align the center of the trolling motor shaft with the S notch"....

The shaft has a center groove, and the bracket has notches and wants to align at dead center naturally, but i followed the directions and moved the bracket about 1/8" where the S notch is dead center of the shaft. Once I attached the livescope transducer and clicked it to perspective position, just eyeballing it looks like "tip" of the transducer points to the left of center. Didn't know if anybody had run across this, or if it even matters operationally.

I talked to Garmin support and the only thing he said is the most important thing for perspective mode is that the transducer is shooting "down" at a 12° angle...which appears to be correct.

Any help appreciated.
