Hi all, my dealer mounted my Garmin Phantom radar flush on the pilot house. I have not used it yet because I know it needs to be raised up. Where it sits now looks like it would be frying our brains while fishing. It may not, but don’t want to take the chance. I plan on redoing it in the next few weeks and would appreciate some advice on height and a recommendation on a mount manufacturer. Thanks

I have 2810xld. I had to put a wedge under it to get good angle. They way the boat rides bow up I was not getting good picture of what was really out in front. I’d at least suggest a wedge

You want a Battlewagon mount....It's Polished Stainless.

Do Not buy a powsercoated alum mount....It will look like crap in 3yrs. The battlewagon will look like the day you put it on.

Now.....This link is for Simrad, but the principles still apply, as to hardtop width and height of pedistal.

A 6in unit is a good compromise. https://www.battlewagonmounts.com/ Look at the A6 model

Look at page 9

Dealer should know better than to flush mount the radome like that.
Take Bobbys advice and get the battlewagon mount.

Thanks everyone for the info...I have decided that the BattleWagon mount (6A) is the way to go with this. Can I get a thumbs up from y’all that the 6A with a 4 degree angle would be enough (or a good starting point) to compensate for the high bow ride as stated by OcPakerguy. Thanks again for your input everyone!

I used the 6" Battlewagon mount w/o the built in wedge with my 24" Phantom. I thought I might have needed the wedge but this works perfectly. I've tucked the motors under and had the tabs fully down to plant the bow to see if it made any difference at speed and didn't notice any change. And if you use it at trolling speeds the boat sits flat in the water. Good luck..
