Garmin TR-1 Gold

Recommended Posts

Anyone that's familiar with garmin TR1 Gold? Can the compass ball be installed in cubby or does it need to have a line of sight. The instruction just say to keep it away from instruments/compass/anchor. Also can this unit operate without tach or throttle actuator hooked up? Obviously it would lack speed control feature. TIA

The compass/ball can be mounted anyplace that it is free of any magnetic interference regardless of line of sight & yes it will operate if you don't have the throttle actuator hooked up.

Next question. Does anyone have a pic or advice on how to install this unit onto a tohatsu. Looks like I have some dabbing to do as it's a far different steering setup than a yamaha. TIA

I would hookup the tach as it is extremely simple to do. You 100% do not need the throttle actuator (I don't have one and mine works fine), I mounted my compass ball in the cuddy with no issues. Like Hank said Tohatsu and Merc are basically the same motor (under 15hp), depending on how handy/technical you are I'd bet you can make it work. The biggest difference between the kits are hole locations on the bracket and spacers, all of which you can modify to fit your kicker.
