Added livescope to my force trolling motor and found out an interesting issue - I confirmed with Garmin - if you use the garmin perspective mount you cannot rotate the transducer to make it work with the TM stowed and you cannot stow the motor with it in perspective view. Won't clear the bracket - I see summit makes a mount but anyone know of any other way?

Looks like all Garmin needs to do is make the arm a little longer - would have thought they would have designed it that way especially for their own TM

I have Garmin perspective mount on the shaft of my Force and it stows just fine.

I know several people in the engineering department. You would be amazed at the number of units, transducers, mounts, etc. they get returned that there is nothing wrong. 😋
