The New Ranger is Here and Ready to Go! :)by Capt Juls on 02/17/20
I picked up the new Ranger 621 FS Pro back on the 7th, and got some aftermarket things installed, and she's ready to go!
The EZEESteps are on, so it makes getting in and out of the boat easier and safer for my customers, and myself. :)
The MoDog Running Rod Rack is installed, so it makes running with rods out of the rod locker safer for my rods.
The Cisco Rod Holders are all set up in the tracks and ready to rock and roll.
She's gassed up and the 300 G2 has a full tank of oil in her, and all my gear for the spring bite is loaded.
I do have one last thing to install next Monday, and that's the Evinrude Nautilus 3.5 gauge that needs to be installed on the dash, so I have engine info at my fingertips.
The new RIDE touch screen system that Ranger is using doesn't allow the Evinrude's to display any engine info, like the ICON or Nautilus does. The RIDE system will show engine temp, RPMs, and allow me to manually trim from the touch screen, but it doesn't give me the auto trim, and any alert messages.
The Nautilus will give me back my auto trim and just give me the peace of mind of knowing exactly what is happening with my motor at all times.
As I understand it, the new RIDE is most compatible with Mercury's and Lowrance Electronics, since that's what Ranger pushes. But, I like my ETEC's and my Humminbird's....so, a rebel I will remain! Ha!
