- VESA mount
The search was mostly unsuccessful (often just leading to very expensive marine
monitors > 1000 EUR). There are some previous articles on this forum, but they seem outdated as there is newer LED backlight technology on the market.
QUESTION: can anyone recommend monitors that fit this description?
PS: I am running a Gigabyte brix as boat computer (GB-BXBT-2807). Definitely fast enough and quite low power
(about 6 W).
Do a search on Nexus 12 volt Television combo units. Television, DVD
built in, and connections that allow it to be used as computer monitor
as well as connecting it up to your GPS
if you wish. Inexpensive units that I have found fit my cruising lifestyle nicely.
