Radar is great, but got tired of going really slow at night to avoid crab pots and pound nets. I've had the SiOnyx Sport out several times, but viewing it though the viewfinder doesn't work on a boat. Then clamped it to a windshield support and pulled the app up on my phone and that was better, but still not good enough. Of course Garmin won't work with anything but it's camera and I like the SiOnyx as if there is any light at all (partial moon or more) you can view it in color. It's not dependent on infra red.
Anyway, I got an iPad for viewing the camera, but no real estate on the console. I was going to cover up 1/2 the switches and the autopilot, but that's really not a good option as much as I use the autopilot. Playing around I found the rubberized iPad cover would grab the dash and I could wedge it against the windshield and the clamp for the camera. Works great and I don't lose much view and no console space!
Duh...yup, the glass is smooth. I'll rethink it and see what could work. I got so frustrated with trying to find somewhere on the console that when I found I had a safe place on the dash I didn't look any further. I was looking for somewhere it would be easy to mount safely and unmount when not in use. Even on the console the mounting brackets would be in the way when not in use. I didn't think about a suction mount to the windshield as I've had such bad luck with suction mounts over the years, but in this case it may be worth revisiting.
