SPDB Deck Pod Base

Deck Pod – adjustable base unit only

SPDB Deck Pod Base



Solve the challenge of finding a level mounting surface to install your displays onto your powerboat, RIB or sailboat wheelhouse.

For displays and standard instruments:

• Range fits 7” – 15” displays
• Accomodates 3/4 Standard instruments (e.g. ST60)


Swivel & Tilt Base

One handed quick release action. Simply release the lever, swivel and tilt to suit your requirements before locking back into position.

Best viewing angle

An adjustable ball joint allows range of movement and multiple mounting angles.

Added Strength

Inner bracing plate secures the Deck Pod base to the pod and gives increased rigidity to the assembly eliminating potential damaged from shock and vibration.

Overhead mounting

Deck Pod models can be overhead mounted. Refer to part number guide for compatibility.

Hassle Free Install & Service

Fixings fit from back to front cutting their threads into injection moulded ABS inserts designed into the Pod front. This design allows for a quick and safe install and repeat servicing.

Increased Protection

Pod seal is manufactured from a high tear strength silicone, it has a very high resistance to heat and UV so you can have confidence that it won’t deteriorate over time.

Supplied Uncut

As standard you will receive your Scanpod uncut (for tips on cutting, please view the FAQ tab). For larger orders, a factory cutting service is available.



Deck Pod for 4 x standard instruments / 2 x standard instruments + x 7" screen.

TIP: Wheelhouse fishing boat? Simply rotate to view in wheelhouse or on deck.

What are Scanpods made from?

Acrylic capped ABS plastic. This makes them tough, corrosion free and UV stable.

My screen is not listed in your Part Number search. Which Pod do I need?

Please refer to the 'technical specification' tab which will give you the information you require to see if your screen will fit.

If you are unsure or require further assistance, please contact Scanstrut.

I want to install a combination of screens, how can I work out if they will fit?

You can refer to the technical information to work out which electronics will fit into your Deck Pod.

As a guide though, you can install 1 x 8” screen with 4 x instruments or 1 x 12” screen with 2 x instruments.

Will the new Raymarine wide screens fit into the Deck Pods?

Yes. Please refer to the ‘Find Your Part Number’ tab for your part number.

Do I have to cut the front myself?

Scanpods are supplied uncut as standard. However, we do stock a small number of pre-cut models. Please contact Scanstrut for further information.

How does the unit cool – are there any vents?

We have conducted thermal testing at Raymarine, using their test facilities. We ran 12" and 15” Raymarine screens inside our 12" and 15” pods. They were heated up to 55°C at 5°C intervals where they ‘soaked’ at the temperature for an hour. There were no failures and the electronics continued to work.

Is it okay to drill vent holes in the Pod?

As the units are fully waterproof, there is no harm in drilling some vent holes. This will let any moisture and condensation out and let air circulate. I understand that quite a few electronics installers do this to all pods anyway.

Great Product Design!, 3 Aug 2010

By Alan Cliff, Cliff Marine Services.
Scanstrut has definitely taken their design of their new Deck Pod seriously, with an excellent idea for the mounting the base, requiring very little surface area for attaching the pod on to a dash.
