NavPod, the leading manufacturer of waterproof housings for marine electronics, announced today an all new product line – the PedestalPod 70 Degree. The new line is specifically designed for protection of marine electronics on the bow of sportfishing boats.

PedestalPods are better than bracket mounting and position electronic displays 12-inches above the deck at an ideal 70-degree viewing angle. The tough and rugged, black powder coated 4-inch aluminum pedestal base is designed to accommodate the latest trend towards larger 12- and 16-inch displays. The convenient 360-degree swivel allows a completely customized position giving anglers easy access to the fishfinder/chartplotter and allows boat covers to fit over the PedestalPod with ease.

Like all NavPods, PedestalPods are designed to resist impacts, vibration and moisture ingress, and are crafted with a thick gauge, UV-stable acrylic capped ABS material that are built specifically with structural rigidity in mind. The NavPod housing incorporates a double gasket system that provides an excellent watertight seal to keep spray off of electrical connections, thus ensuring the reliability and longevity of marine electronics. Electronic displays easily flush mount into the precut housing and all wires and connections are routed internally through the pedestal base.

"We increased the diameter of our pedestal to make the new PedestalPod 70 Degree rock solid and capable of supporting 12- and 16-inch displays in our proven NavPod pre-cut housing for full protection of your electronics," said John McClelland, regional sales manager, Ocean Equipment. "Raising electronic displays 12-inches off the deck and at a 70-degree viewing angle is ideal when fishing from the bow of your boat to position the fishfinder/chartplotter where you need it, when you need it."

NavPod's 70 degree PedestalPod is available for all 12-inch and 16-inch displays from all major marine electronic manufacturers. NavPod backs its commitment to quality by offering a 10-year warranty on all Gen3 NavPods. PowerPods and PedestalPods can be purchased through a nationwide network of marine electronics dealers, national retailers and wholesale distributors.
