Graph Base GPS Puck Mount...How can they sell these????

4 posts in this topic

I purchased a mounting plate with the round spot on the back for the GPS puck to sit on for use with my Lcx 17m. I thought it would be nice to have the Graph and puck together, so it could all come off at once. I noticed right away that it wasn't going to work well, It would constantly lose signal while on the water. After a couple trips I decided to move the puck and what do ya know...problem fixed.

If anyone out there is looking at purchasing one of these for your set up, my advice is to save your money and use the GPS attachments that come with your unit to mount it in a clear area with no obstructions.

Has anyone else had this problem with the mount attachment, or am I the only one?

Personally I think they should put a notice on the package saying..."Mounting GPS Puck to this attachment might interfere with satelite signal causing it to lose it's ability to navigate"... grin.gif

Mine has alway worked but not as well as it should. I am updating my Memorial weekend. I picked up one of the ram mount antenna holders so it is still removable from the boat. That should make a difference for me.

      I can speak for Ludlows and have nothing but high praise. Mark, Sally, Paul and Kelly run a top notch resort. June to early September they are usually about Max capacity each week. Outside of the peak season weekend use is still relativity high. They don't have a restaurant on site but will provide(cooked in house) high end meals for some large cooperate groups that come in. They aren't struggling and the service won't be beat anywhere on Vermillion.

      hope you all are paying close attention to the meandered water issue at bay here in SD. Sounds like some landowners in Mn are taking notes.    Its a difficult subject and I and can see both sides from private and public perspectives.

      Now that the ice is gone, what do people fish for before the walleye opener? Any reports?
