RailMount NavPods are best used for mounting of an autopilot control, sailing instrument, or small chartplotter onto an existing pedestal guard. Fits onto any 1″, 1.125″, or 1.25″ diameter tube. A Stainless Steel arm is used to mount the NavPod housing. The NavPod can rotate 180 degrees for easy viewing while sitting under the dodger on a rainy day. All wiring runs from the NavPod, down the center of the stainless steel arm (available space is 0.75″ inside the narrowest part of the arm, so keep this in mind for planning your cable run; most transducer cables will not fit through the arm), and into the pedestal guard. This application provides a clean and sturdy installation for electronics, without replacement of the pedestal guard.
RailMounts are designed for all popular standard size instruments, as well as 7 and 9 inch chartplotters.
Structural Rigidity – The Gen3 enhancements now include a thicker gauge acrylic capped ABS material that improves strength and provides better structural rigidity. This thicker material allows for a larger waterproof seal. The better the structural rigidity, the less flexing when tightening and more uniform pressure on the seal. The excellent UV stability of the acrylic is combined with the durability of the ABS. The acrylic cap protects the ABS from UV and its potentially damaging effects on plastic.
Waterproof Seal – All RailMount NavPods are manufactured with a double gasket system providing an excellent watertight seal. This seal provides the best protection of your Marine Electronics. NavPods are made to withstand the harshest wet offshore boating conditions. Gen3 enhancements include a thicker external silicone gasket with improved flush fit. The internal Poron Microcell Polyurethane gasket is now 50% thicker and is not subject to “compression set” like many rubber compounds. This is important when you need to open the NavPod in the future in order to service your electronics. The gasket will continue to do its job.
Nickel Chrome-Plated Stainless Steel – We use all 316 stainless steel hardware that is supplied with each NavPod. Large round-head tamper-resistant screws have deeper sockets for the NavPod wrench for better holding ability when tightening than screws used on our Traditional Series NavPod. The Nickel Chrome-Plated Stainless Steel tamper-resistant screws provide security combined with a little style!
Commitment to Quality – We stand behind our commitment by offering a 10-year warranty on all new Gen3 NavPods.
WARNING for California customers
Jay Grizzell –
Was able to transpose the overall size of the RMX 4400 from the website (after rummaging around for a bit) in order to create a full size mockup that helped verify the unit would fit as intended. A RMX 4406 that was purchased to accept a Zeus³ 7 chartplotter. The RMX 4406 has been dryfit into position in order to verify location of the hole in the stanchion to run data and power cables. Installation instructions are clear and concise. Appears to be well made, sturdy and weatherproof, leading me to believe I made the right decision.
A rating of ‘4’ is as high as I go, nothing gets a 5, the worst can get a 1 (if ‘0’ is not permitted), so a ‘4’ is pretty darn good!
