Wow that is one nice looking rig. What is the small screen in the last picture? I see it's most likely connected to the motors but what does Garmin sell it as?

That's a Garmin GMI20, allows you to have a wide variety of info from speed, water temp, depth, wind speed, rudder angle, tab angle, etc. Just another cool gadget.

So that will replace the standard factory gauge on my new df 300? does it simply plug into the factory wires? I like Garmin stuff because it usualy is simple to figure out. That gauge doesn't look like a touch screen so im guessing it will scratch? What size is it?

It is a NEMA 2000 gauge. Push button operation. Pretty scratch resistant screen. Truly an excellent color display. The above link will provide size and display data options.

As far as an exact replacement of a manufacturers gauge? Probably not. It does not typically show engine alarms and fault data. You would still want one factory gauge on you boat.

That looks like what used to be Performance Marine many years ago. Right off the Palmetto around NW 58th St. I used to work there! Glad to see business is good, beautiful boat and quality installation!

Boat just came in from the factory 2 days ago and I had another 5 to deliver this week. Everything's rigged except the 2 transducers and a couple finishing touches here and there. Customer wanted to take it to the water for the Wkend so it'll be back in the shop beginning of the week. Here's a couple pics I took today before it left.

My opinion is you are fishing for a compliment.

But, compliments are deserved. Great job, and a boat to drool over (even though I'm not a cc owner).

Just out of curiosity, why two XSV units? In my relatively uneducated mind, I would think one XSV unit and one non-XSV (without the sonar processor) unit.
