    After receiving my equiptment I fabricated a new dash panel and covered it with leatherette material to update the look.
    The new transducer was a PITA since the boat was hauled for a paint job and some maint We decided to send the transducer to the boatyard and have them install it. well after removing the old there wasn’t enough flat surface to mount the new one. So they had to cut the keel and glass a larger area flat.
    I had installed the new Radar on the roof prior to shrinkwrap and ran the cables.
    Running cables to the bridge from the ER proved once again why I have scars.
    I had to dismantle the entertainment center to get the transducer cable in the wall.
    Heading sensor was installed and calibrated(3x) due to the bad mounting location ( too close to ice maker 110v ac line) this tied into the nmea2000 network along with the fusion cockpit remote, that cable had already been run.
    I built a new nmea backbone along with installing an Ethernet switch and plugged it all in and wahlaaa it works!!!!! So after testing now I need to clean up all the wiring and label them and do the final install .
    Here’s a few boat porn shots of what’s been going on I’ll post when it’s all buttoned up.

    Parts list: FURUNO TZTOUCH 2 x2 displays
    Furuno DRS6ANXT Radar
    Furuno XN12a/4 Radar Antenna
    Furuno 525stid msd transducer

    Looks amazing! I didn’t do the remote, I’ll be interested to see if you end up using it a bunch, if so I’ll have to add one. What hub did you use?

    Josh, I used an advantech EKI 8 Port, another feature I like is the WiFi app I can leave an iPad in the salon or galley or stateroom and view and control the plotters from anywhere on the boat. Will be good for overnight anchoring.
    As far as the remote I figured I’d do it while everything is exposed I am also looking to make a small (armrest) to attach to the arm rest of the helm chair and mount the remote on that covered in white vinyl of course. Similar to the pic.
    I’ve tried to zoom in on my iPad while bouncing around and it’s very frustrating so this remote will give me added features.
