Default Seaview or Navpod which is best

I have to mount a Garmin 5012 plotter and a Furuno 10.4" Navnet in the tower of a Henriques 35 Express that I have just purchased (very excited). What is the preffered mounts to use Navpod or Seaview. I assumne the are both adjustable left right and up down. The Navpod look like they may move on the bases in a sea where the Seaview lock into place.
Thanks

I don't have any experience with Seaview but I would go with a Scanstrut Deckpod over a Navpod, hands down. I have a Navpod installed in my boat and we sold off a lot of generation 1 Deckpods and the difference is unreal. Gasketing on the Navpod is a joke, the plastic base has been known to shatter, especially on an upper station, the navpods warp like crazy, never seem to fit quite right. The Deckpods have a gasket much like a radar dome, use a metal base instead of plastic, much thicker plastic casings, they're just a better product in my opinion.
