Not sure where it was, but it had a cool hill climb that resulted in a tumble, and some jumps off of a bluff. Makes me miss sleddin in the Bighorns.

I have the 522c igps and never have had a problem getting or keeping gps signal. Couple things to keep in mind on it. First, try to keep the area above it relatively clear. Also, it likes to be mounted "mostly" vertical. It doesn't need to be at a 90 degree angle or anything, just don't expect it to keep a signal at 45 degrees.

Why??

My buddy just has a 16' lund so not a lot of room and it would really suck if some one clipped it.
Supposedly interference is the reason for mounting the 3'. I think the biggest help is just getting it away from the windshield and dash. In Colorado we are already fishing around so many obstructions i.e. mountains, that you want as clear of a space as possible. I mounted mine by the transom, clear of most foot traffic, it hasn't been an issue so much as hitting it, but I have been told if you store your boat oustide with a cover on it, be sure to disconnect the puck and stow away. the hot cover on top of the puck can melt the puck plastic.
Yeah good point. His boat has no windsheild.....

Here is a pic

Cabela's had the 522C winter/summer kit on sale for $549. It had two transducers, one for summer, and one for winter to use the flasher option ice fishing; plus case, battery, charger. Don't know if they still have it going on.
