The Garmin 4208 is only screen VGA 8 inch, it is not enough for readable quality i can see before, it is very small picture.
I have X-Yacht X43, i have actually plotter Raymarine
C120 installed at helm, this screen was not very readable when sun is direct to display, it look like very dark picture…but this material is very expansive and limited with possibilities, i want to change it.
The second thing is i cant move anywhere on boat, i always need go under the helm to check my navigation, i am bored about this.
The third thing is i cant see the weather
files and mail, with Raymarine or Garmin it is not possible to do all i can work on my laptop.
It is the raison why today, i am looking for new complete solution like computer installed on chart table with all protections, and got the new wireless display 12 inch for quality picture, the price is today lower against quality screen like on the market Raymarine, Garmin, Simrad
12 inch, it depend what we compare exactly.
At this time, we can see the market go up changing to evolutive solutions wireless like Panasonic 10 Inch, Ixsuns 12 inch, Bootronik 12 inch with quality picture, very attractive solutions in my oppinion.
I like to think about possibilities to use software with nice map picture, wheather forecast
way plan, mail, web anywere on boat, i can move at helm place, in my cabin
, on deck
when i do race
, it is i think completely different way to navigate like before than we use the electronic help up today.
I think in the futur, we will see this difference on navigation at sea.
The computer offer solution on the market with low expansive laptop, very easy to find laptop under 500 USD on chart table and wireless display seem’s in my eyes very good futur compromise, what is your oppinion ?
Laptop 500 USD + wireless screen 2 000 / 3 000 USD + software 100/500 USD = Complete solution start about 2 600 USD to 4 000 USD with large using application + quality screen + mobile, we got better solution at lower or same price than dedicated electronic marine
for outdoor using up we can see up today.
