My Lowrance Point-1 is right where your pic shows and it works great with no interference from my Merc 150 Fourstroke.

I wanted 2 1199's and got them mounted without being on top of each-other and obstructing my view. I am very happy with the set-up. The guy even pre-drilled holes for the gauges which would need to be re-located. I love my Reata even more now.

Thanks all for your feedback. Took some time to get the antenna mounted with some double stick tape in the location forward the motor in the splash-well to do some test runs and verify signal and lack of interference. Will report back in the spring on the performance. Thanks again.

I have the puck in the same spot on my boat (reata) and it works just fine. Overall a good location in my opinion, can not get stepped on and is out of the way for everything.

Very nicely done! I have a new 2014 Reata that I just picked up and I am beginning to setup.

Can you tell me approximate cost of the dash panels? I got on the preceionssonar website and I couldn't find this information.

Are panels constructed of plastic, aluminum, or stainless steel?

Thanks again for sharing this great idea to the group!

The company I used is called Bass Boat Technologies. The unit is very solid and looks good. It is composed of some type of composite and metal. If you are interested, call them at 706-217-5124. They do mostly bass boats so this was a prototype which he modified for the Reata as well as for the 2 GPS units. I believe the unit was $345 and I paid $ 134 for freight. They have a website and I believe he modified his C TYPE model in order to accommodate my dual units. All I can say is that, my field of vision is not obstructed in the least and they are at perfect viewing angles. Quality work. If you need any other info you can PM.
