The Finished Result

By using the right tools, for the right job, your finished result will work, look and perform as intended. Both of these pods required custom cutting and mounting.

Hi, I have a Navpod as shown with a Raymarine C70 Radar/Chartplotter unit installed when the boat was first comissioned 6 years ago. Since new, on hot days when the Pod and the C70 are in strong sunlight, there appears to be too much heat inside the box and the C70 degenerates into vertical lines and cant be rebooted until the pod cools down. I have had the C70 unit tested and also all the wiring leads. The wiring connection cables are closely bent to fit in the pod and we think the fault may be in these cables but when we open the box up, it all works fine. Has anyone else addressed this problem? There are others on the Raymarine site with the same problem. Has anyone drilled ventilation holes into the bottom of the pod box? Any other ideas as to cooling the unit on hot days. No problems when it is cool or when the unit is first turned on - perhaps not until an hour or two later on hot days.
