Tallon Elite Socket Mount on Kayak

Tallon Systems has revealed the latest update of the Elite Socket, which now incorporates connectivity for Lowrance marine electronics.

The launch of the newest Elite Socket announces a partnership between Tallon Systems and Lowrance. The result allowing for seamless connectivity with the Lowrance Elite fishfinder and chartplotter/fishfinder systems, and the Lowrance Mark fishfinder units.

Easy to wire to a Lowrance transducer and including a standard 12V power socket, the Tallon Elite Socket can be installed virtually anywhere on a boat or kayak. Boaters simply attach their Lowrance Mark or Elite Series units to RAM mounts and plug them in to the flush Tallon Elite Socket.

Whether the user is fishing from a kayak, dinghy, a centre console or a bass boat, the Elite Socket with Lowrance connectivity is designed for a wide variety of open boat users who desire easy relocation or removal of their Lowrance Mark & Elite Series fish finders for either practicality or security purposes.

“This new Tallon Elite Socket is going to be ideal for the bass boat fisherman, as they can now move a single Lowrance fish finder with them around the boat, rather than having to install multiple fix mounted units throughout, saving on cost and space,” said Mike Burns of Tallon USA.

“Fisherman can quickly plug in their Lowrance unit to where they need it, no matter where on the boat that is, and it also means there will no longer be any loose cables or ugly permanent mounts cluttering the boat, a feature that will make the product very attractive to the Kayak market as well.”

"We are very pleased to offer our Lowrance Mark and Elite series customers enhanced form and function with this exciting new mounting solution," said Louis Chemi, COO, Navico Americas.

"The results of our close collaboration with Tallon demonstrate our commitment to continued innovation in each and every segment of the boating market."

When the Lowrance units aren’t needed there are hundreds of Tallon and RAM accessories to take their place - from simple hooks to drink and rod holders to a wide range of powered attachments or the latest iPad mount. Just plug in the required accessories and change them out to get the most out of your boat.

Pricing and Availability

The Tallon Elite Socket will be sold as a complete mounting package including the new RAM Mount for Lowrance (1” or 1.5” options) and the Lowrance Transducer Extension Cable, retailing from USD$99.95.

So where did they put the transducer? You can not mount it inside and shoot thru the hull with DSI units.

Quoting Robert H.:
So where did they put the transducer? You can not mount it inside and shoot thru the hull with DSI units.

Not true Robert. the DSI transducer CAN be mouhed as thru-hull, with hardly any harm to its effectiveness. I quote from elsewhere "Both side scan and down scan can have internal transducer and shoot through the hull. For DSI you'll only suffer the same deficits as any standard transducer install: If you use goop or silicone and you get bubbles, you get signal degradation. If you use an internal wet mount you get near perfect return with substantial advantages over an external install in relation to drag and damage.

The DSI internal is easy as it only needs to look down over a narrow angular window like a traditional transducer. Any location that suits a standard trany will suit a DSI trany."

Also, be warned that as of today, the Tallon gear only fits the 5 series, and is incompatible with the 4 series (source: CH Smith Marine)
