Thumbs up Re: Electronics ! How Much is Enough ?

My 2c... All you can afford/power...

BUT,,, I am an EE and understand the interaction of all the stuff. My ideal system is a laptop at the inside nav station coupled (preferably by Ether Net/ aka SeaTalkHS if Ray-Marine) I set this up on PANGAEA, Manta 44' PC, so I could set up routes with a full keyboard and transfer them to the E120 display at the helm. Hate to name a way-point with a rotatory dial!!
OBTW... Pangaea PC is available to a loving owner... Tethys-Society.ORG

Happy Cruising Gene

Mr. Columbus sailed in 1492, 1493, 1498, and 1502. In the course of his four voyages, Christopher Columbus lost nine ships.

Perhaps he's not the best model to use for electronics selection in 2011.
