Well despite after having it for a couple of weeks, today was the first chance I have had to try out my new BerleyPro sun visor that I recently got from Martyn . I did have one of the Assassin Composite ones on my earlier Elite 5, so I had a pretty good idea what to look for. Pleased to say it was what I expected. First up it does a good job at keeping the sun off the screen making the screen images much easier to see. The added bonus is that you don't have to have the brightness up as high, which means a longer battery life on the lower setting. In addition it also helps keep splashes and salt deposits off as well thus meaning it's easier to see the screen for longer before you have to try and clean it. All up, pretty impressed.... If you're interested in getting one, here's the link to Marty's website

Looking at getting something like this
I see these do not have a clear piece over the screen of the fishfinder... the dried salt issue seems alot less than without a visor
Still happy with it ?

Hi SitDown - If looking for a visor with protection all around the fish finder (including front screen) contact Coromandel Kayak Adventures.

I have a Berley Pro on the Lowrance I’m selling. Does all that Hainsey says it does. The Rob Fort cover I had on a previously owned Garmin unit protected the cables and plugs from most of the water water splashes and dunking. Trade off was a slightly more difficult to read display due to the plastic cover. Both have pros and cons.
If I have a free standing mount on the next one I would go for the Rob Fort cover due to the wire protection, but if flush mounted ( in the purpose built Stealth hatch cover) I’d get the Berley Pro. My two cents worth.
