R247

2 posts in this topic

 I just purchased a R247.   It does not have a compass.  Where is the best place to mount a compass and is there an optional factory mount for the compass.  I noticed the R31 has a flat spot molded into dash in front of the steering wheel to mount the compass.  Thanks

That sounds like where it is mounted on my 2015 R247; mine was factory installed; I don't remember if it was standard or an option.  Since 2015, some formerly standard items have become options (bow filler cushion, etc).

If you have a GPS/Chartplotter/fishfinder, it will have a digital compass.  A good old fashioned compass is always a good backup if you know how to use it and you have heading info....but you can have your backup as a handheld......no need to permanently install one......
