Mounting

Post by akell2 » Tue Mar 22, 2016 4:25 am

I thought I read somewhere that the smartnav 4 could be mounted using a standard camera type screw fitting. Is this correct?
If so how do you do this?

akell2,

Yes, if you remove the base there is a 6/32 thread mount. That is the standard for cameras and can be mounted on most new camera mounts.

Hi Mike
Thanks for confirming that.
I tried to remove the base but could not seem to do it. Is there a spring clip to take out first, or do you just pull?
Many thanks,
Andrew

akell2,

There should be a metal pin that you pull out of the back. Once pulled out it releases the base.

Hi Mike

Can you give me a clue please - I am sure it is easy when you know how - but I cannot get the mount off the camera!!

akell2,

See the little metal clip in the recessed section, just under where it says Aspire? Use a hook to pull that out and it will release the base.
