Hard to fit H2O into Ram Mount holder

11 posts in this topic

I bought a Ram Mount for my iFinder H2O, but it seems super hard to get the unit to fit into the mount. It seems like I'm going to wreck the rubber gasket that goes around the unit when I'm trying to put it into the mount, as if the mount is too small for the unit. Is there a trick to this? Thanks.

It should look like this, right?

Insert the H2O into the bottom of the mount first.

Then spread the top of the mount apart and slide the top of the H2O into place.

Mine works exactly as airjer describes. Never had a problem with mine. Maybe you have a different RAM mount?

Mine looks different than that. Instead of being able to spread the top apart, it has a piece that's supposed to fit over the very top. Maybe I bought the wrong mount? I'll post a pic tonight.

I would like to see what you have. Sounds like you did get the wrong one.

you bought the ram mount for the i-finders that first came out..if you have the package it should say i-finder h2o or hunt on it if it only says i-finder its the old style..the h20 and hunt are just alittle bit bigger then the old i-finder black and green models..

gft, I think you got it. Mine seems to be too big for the mount. Another wasted $30 bucks...

That's the one AirJer! Maybe if I use my chop saw to take off the top 1/2 inch of the Unit it will fit better!! smirk

I ran across the same thing for the carrying case the guy behind the counter told me that it would work but he was wrong it took me all summer to find the case.

Sounds like an hsolist listing will be coming shortly! The correct style works great.

    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
    • Concrete. Way easier to plow. My parents have a gravel driveway WORST THING EVER! Impossible to snow blow because of all the rocks always wet and muddy. Sure it's cheaper but in the long it's not worth the cheaper price. 
    • I have used a Lowrance XOG (no longer available) on my boat and on my snowmobile for years now with no problems with cold or speed of tracking. I use a Lakemaster card for Minnesota lake for fishing, a Navionics card for coverage in Canada and LOW for winter and summer fishing, and a Red Pine snowmobile trail map for riding. Have ridden at 30 below without any problem with the touchscreen, it is hooked up to sled power, so it probably is getting some heat, and I put it inside my jacket when I get off. I recommend that you do a little research on the available chips for where you are going because different manufacturers use different chips. My use pretty much limits me to Garmin, and expect to pay couple to $300+ for chips for where I travel.
