Yep, that's all I had to do on mine. Little more than a 5 minute process
Little ducky. This is with half done in the dark. Love it. All ya have to do is take screws off and dash pulls out with enough room to change bulbs. Not a bad upgrade for $15
Yep, nice work.
Looks like you have the important food groups on hand.
LOL. I should really think about drinking some of those in the cabinet.
Ok, continued still this year. Had one switch blank available, so now have this on the right end of the dash, so that I can use nice, short, neat cables directly to the phone and tablet mounts.
Then, finally got the on-board WiFi nailed down. Large omni-directional antenna mounted inside port side arch behind the TV, runs down to coax-USB adapter into a router to create my own network. I changed the SSID to "Undercover FBI Van" just for the LOLs. Where we're docked at the marina doesn't give us great WiFi signal, but this antenna does a great job picking it up. Now, all of the WiFi devices can just be connected to my own network. If we travel, just change the settings on the incoming signal, and not have to change settings on all of the individual devices on the boat (3 Roku TVs, music server tablet, Raymarine screens, phones, laptops, etc.).
Mounted a 32" TV on the step post in the mid cabin on a hydraulic articulating mount. Tucks up nicely to the port side bulkhead, and pivots/raises/rotates out so that the main cabin has a good view if needed.
And finally replaced the 13" TV/VCR thing up in the forward berth.
All TVs are connected to onboard WiFi, and with them being Roku devices, and having DirecTV at home, can really pick up whatever I want. YouTube, HBO, Netflix, Vudu, whatever. Now, just to get things cleaned up, and wait for the weather to get warm, although I'm pretty sure it's never going to get warm again. There was snow on my boat when I got to the marina this morning.
That looks awesome. Since I'm replacing my dash panels anyway, I guess I'll order and change the bulbs at the same time
Not exactly an electronics upgrade...well, other than the Fusion remote now on the dash, but a sexy wheel, thanks to MonacoMike.
looks great, where did you get the USB drop for the blanks thats a great idea?
One of my issues with that one is that it doesn't put out 2.4A on each plug, and I'd be surprised if it's really marine grade.
It’s worth a shot for a fraction of the cost, imo
If you don’t have the switches you can use one of these I think.
I thought about that, but with that 12v plug being way down left on the dash, my quest to not have USB cables draping all over the place to reach the mounts on the starboard window wouldn't have been realized.
Oh I hear ya there. Your set up is way cooler but for some of us lessor folks lacking your talents wires are a fact of life
Can you share where the steering wheel came from?
Oh trust me, I'm a total neophyte when it comes to boat work. Been working on cars for 30+ years though, so I suppose that helps.
The steering wheel is @MonacoMike 's fault for sure.

Those are nice for sure. May have to look into that after the wallet refills a bit.
What did you end up using for iPad/cell mount? I used to do a lot of off-roading and used a scosche mount that worked well.
This is the tablet mount. I thought about Ram, since I use those on my quad for drinkholder and phone mount, but this seemed to work a bit better for my application.
These are the cheap phone mounts I use in my cars and boat. The ratcheting mechanism to keep it locked closed will break about once a year, but I'm ok with that.
