    So when I first saw the bad boy my jaw dropped.:Wow1: This is what I have been waiting for..... Finally Lowrance has made something perfect for the Ford Raptor.

    A marine Unit???? Don't think so!

    Now if they come up with this in a new touchscreen Baja model....yes!

    They don't make Baja models anymore. Same guts though.

    If it's good enough for the guys that run baja, I bet it'll work for you

    Any updates on the mount? Also, any need for an external antenna with this unit? Seeing this is making me glad that I've held out on a GPS thus far. A mount similar to the fiberglass one you made for RSV1 would be sweet.

    Very Nice! Great looking unit in the perfect location for it. Can we see more pics of how it bolts up to that space. Need GPS before next major Run/Expedition! And yes of course antenna info?

    Do you think there is anyway to incorporate the Lowrance unit in the same spot as the original Nav location? it looks pretty clean the way it is presented but even cleaner if it was part of the console. I understand the OEM Nav functions as the camera(s) screen but i did not order any cameras on my raptor. The Lowrance unit would suit my needs better than the OEM Nav. Any thoughts?

    Yes! The 5 inch and 7 inch units would fit with some modification. You would lose your whole radio and bluetooth functions.

    Heres a pic of our 5 inch model in our RSV Truck.

    Heres another option...
