Tallon Systems' latest version of its Elite Socket will now incorporate connections for Lowrance marine electronics.

According to Tallon's general manager, Duncan Good, the new socket will accommodate Lowrance Elite fishfinder and chartplotter/fishfinder systems, as well as Lowrance Mark fishfinder units.

"Easy to wire to a Lowrance transducer and including a standard 12V power socket, the Tallon Elite Socket can be installed virtually anywhere on a boat or kayak," Good says. "Boaters simply attach their Lowrance Mark or Elite Series units to RAM mounts and plug them in to the flush Tallon Elite Socket."

Good says the new socket can be used on kayaks, dinghies, centre consoles or bass-type boats and believes it will especially appeal to fishers. "The Elite Socket with Lowrance connectivity is designed for a wide variety of open-boat users who desire easy relocation or removal of their Lowrance Mark and Elite Series fishfinders for either practicality or security purposes.


"They can now move a single fishfinder with them around the boat, rather than having to install multiple fix-mounted units throughout, saving on cost and space."

Good says the socket will also eliminate the need for loose cables or "ugly" permanent mounts.

He says the Tallon Elite Socket will be sold as a complete mounting package and will retail in New Zealand from $99.95.
