(Press Release) – NavPod, manufacturer of high-quality waterproof housings for marine electronics, announced today that it has launched the PedestalPod RAM Series.
Conveniently positioning displays 20-inches off the deck, PedestalPods provide effortless viewing while fishing and allows anglers to easily access their fishfinder/chartplotter or multifunction display to change range and zoom, or even to control the trolling motor. RAM Mounts are designed with a patented rubber ball and socket system that allows almost an infinite amount of ways to position the angle of a display housed in a PedestalPod for the ultimate boater convenience and visibility. Incorporating the proven RAM Mounting system, the new PedestalPod RAM Series features the large 2.25-inch rubber “D” size ball and RAM Pin-Lock security solution.
PedestalPods are better than bracket mounting because they are very sturdy and secure, yet clean and attractive. They provide protection for fishing and navigation electronics from the roughest and wettest boating conditions. PedestalPods offer the convenience of easy reach and control while providing added protection from damage and security from theft.
Designed to resist impacts, vibration and moisture ingress, all PedestalPods are crafted with a thick gauge, UV-stable acrylic capped ABS material and are manufactured specifically with structural rigidity in mind. Built on the proven technology of NavPod’s popular range of PowerPods, PedestalPods are also manufactured with a double gasket system that provides an excellent watertight seal to keep spray off electrical connections ensuring the reliability and longevity of marine electronics.
For anglers that trailer or store their boat, the mount allows the display to fold flat onto the deck with a mear 10-inches of clearance. This will allow most boat covers to fit over the PedestalPod when not in use. Electronics are easily flush mounted into the pre-cut face of the NavPod and there are pre-cut models available for 7-, 9- and 12-inch LCD displays from all major marine electronic manufacturers.
“NavPod has over twenty years of experience providing waterproof housings for marine electronics in the sailing and offshore boating industry,” said Rob Walsh, president and owner, Ocean Equipment. “We are now completely focused and committed on the inland fishing market.”
The PedestalPod RAM Series ranges in price from $649 to $749, and can be purchased from nationwide network of marine electronics dealers, national retailers and wholesale distributors. PedestalPods, as well as all Gen3 NavPods are backed by a 10-year warranty.
