Here are a couple of ideas for anyone looking now.
My backup nav system is a Windows desktop
permanently mounted under the helm
feeding a $100 monitor
. The desktop
is a compact size one, used, off of a lease
program. I bought it for under $200 from Tiger direct. No complaints.
Also, for a little over $100 you can get a USB stick computer. You plug
it into an HDMI TV at your nav station, you can use a wireless keyboard thru bluetooth and it has USB ports
if you need to add peripherals. Being solid state, the 32 GB hard drive won't be hurt by vibration. It comes with Windows software
Then you can put it in your pocket and take it home with you.
Its got plenty of power to run Fugawi
or similar programs.
Why can't things remain where i carelessly left them?
