Hobie has taken the guess work out of installing a fish finder by providing a simple yet complete installation kit. This kit is specifically pieced together to include everything you need for wiring up your fish finder to any Hobie kayak with the“Lowrance Ready” feature. Kit Includes: 12V 9AH waterproof gel cell battery and charger, wiring hardware, and battery holder which mounts to the sail post or in the lip of an 8” twist and seal hatch.
Received this quickly. Good customer service, happy with product. Thanks!
Received the kit but with a different (Cheaper) battery than the one advertised in the add and picture from Austin Kayak, misleading+ Losing customers
Hobie did change the battery that is included with this kit - we have updated the images accordingly.
Compared to putting a my Lowrance on my last kayak - a Trident Ultra 4.3 - installation on my new Outback has been a breeze. The Outback has a Lowrance compatible mount on the bottom and well placed cable outlets on the hull. And this all-in-one kit is the easiest way to get the rest of the job done. I just dropped the battery holder in my rear twist-n-stow hatch and used the plastic connectors that allowed me to splice the fish finder power cable to the battery cable without solder and electrical tape. Neat, secure and done. Worth the $
I used this for my power pole and its works great and keeps the battery in place. I will say I wish the litium ion battery had been out for the power pole I would have gotten that but probably wont replace this since I have it.
