Regal 2250 - Radio remote

by mlines » 10 May 2015, 20:13

The standard Regal 2250 radio position is down by the drivers knee on the side panel. This makes a neat installation but means the radio is not easy to operate for the driver or the passenger.

I therefore decided to treat myself (as I am usually the co-pilot) to a remote handset.

The next challenge was where to fit it. I do not want to fill the boat with holes so I looked around for a discrete mounting point. The Regal has removable map pocket panels on the side so we removed it to have a look.

This has a space where the cup-holder fits and provides a hidden downward facing surface suitable for a fitting.

So a quick cut with a hole cutter and the fitting was "fitted"

It is fitted with a waterproof cap although this is hardly necessary on a downward facing surface.

Image

Image

It looks rather neat.
So it was back into the boat with the panel.

The remote shows all the functions from the main radio

That includes the AIS sub menus

So a bit of a toy but will enable me to sit in the navigators seat and operate the radio!
