Raymarine E120 or C120Wide

I'm trying to find a Scanstrut-type swivelling pod for my Raymarine E120 Chart Plotter. I can find plenty for the E120W, but nothing for the E120 although I think the pod dimensions fit both chart plotters. I want to elevate / be able to swivel my E120 plotter currently installed at a fixed angle on my Lagoon 440 upper helm station. Anyone have information or experience to help me maaking sure I don't order the wrong pod.
Located Brisbane, Australia

The E120W is slightly longer 380 v 355, less high, 250mm v 265 and deeper 160mm v 140mm

so the only tighter dimension for the E120 is the height as its 14mm higher, check the specs of the pod, Id wager it will take both the 120 and 120W


Specifically with the E120, from my experience, the big issue is the enormous depth the E120 is 160mm deep and will not fit into ANY of the scan strut pods, without a big and horrible spacer on the front . Thats what I had to do to make it fit ( my 393 had dual E series) ( thats the advantage of the C120W, its not as deep.

Thanks Dave
Thats what I was concerned about, and perhaps why I can never find a pod advertised at less than about USD$450 whereas the C120W is often discounted. In fact its hard to find a pod specifically made for the E120, although I know they exist.
Happy sailing
