This very popular SystemPod instrument housing is an extra large, sturdy, secure, and clean way to mount your Chartplotter, Radar, or Multi-function Display plus one or more smaller instruments at the helm, where they will be most useful.
This particular SystemPod mounts on a 9-1/2" wide pedestal guard, has a blank face, and is available in the unlikely event that NavPod does not offer a Pre-Cut SystemPod for your particular combination of display and instruments.
The GP1170 can accommodate a combination of display and instruments that occupy an area up to 20.77"W x 9.64"H on the face of the pod. It can fit instruments with a maximal depth of 5.25". Please see the Specification Table for more details.

Designed for mounting on sailboat pedestal steering systems, SystemPods provide room to mount a single Radar, Chartplotter, or Multi-Functional Display plus one to four additional instruments for depth, speed, and wind at the helm where you can easily operate them, and clearly see the smaller details on the screen. (The number of smaller instruments that can be mounted in this GP1170 SystemPod will depend on how much room your main display screen occupies.)

SystemPods have a high gloss white finish, giving you a clean mounting solution while concealing unsightly wires. Nickel chrome-plated, tamperproof screws provide a little bling and a lot of security.
Designed with a double gasket, waterproof seal, SystemPods protect your electronics from the harshest and wettest offshore boating conditions.

SystemPods are available for either 9.5" or 12" wide pedestal guards.
They can be installed on your existing straight vertical pedestal guard, but for best results, install on one of NavPod's Single Bend AngleGuards — which will provide you with the best and most comfortable viewing angle for your instruments. See Related Products, below.
AngleGuards come in either 1" or 1.25" tubing diameters. Mounting your SystemPod on an AngleGuard with 1.25" tubing is highly recommended. With almost twice the room for wires and connectors, the larger 1.25" diameter makes your installation much easier - especially since you will probably be installing a number of instruments.
The larger tubing diameter also has a much more natural and secure feeling when holding onto it in the cockpit.

We generally recommend that you hire a professional rigger to install your NavPod unless you are quite handy with tools and have the proper drill bits and a drill press. See below for more details.

More About NavPod Features —
NavPod products are continually being improved, and are now in their third generation of product engineering and development. Some of the major improvements you can expect from the latest "Gen3" generation of NavPods include:
High Gloss Finish — NavPods are manufactured with a custom co-extruded Acrylic-Capped ABS material. The ABS provides strength while the acrylic outer layer provides excellent UV stability and a very high gloss white finish that matches "white" gel-coated fiberglass. It will never yellow.
Structural Rigidity — Generation 3 NavPods are now made with a thicker gauge material that improves strength and provides better structural rigidity. This heavier material allows for a thicker waterproof seal with more uniform tightening pressure since the unit doesn't flex as much.
Waterproof Seal — All NavPods are manufactured with a double gasket system providing an excellent watertight seal between the front and back of the NavPod.
A thicker external silicone gasket with an improved flush fit is combined with an internal microcell EPDM gasket which is now 50% thicker and is not subject to "compression set" like many rubber compounds. This is important when you need to open the NavPod in the future in order to service your electronics. The seal will continue to do its job year after year.
This double seal system seal provides the best protection for your marine electronics. You can have confidence that NavPods can withstand the harshest and wettest offshore boating conditions.
NOTE that the front seal for mounting the actual instrument on the face of the NavPod is the mounting gasket that is supplied with your instrument.
Nickel Chrome-Plated Stainless Steel — All the hardware supplied with your NavPod is highly corrosion resistant 316 stainless steel which is nickel-chrome plated for an elegant look.
