Kindle as Plotter Screen?

I learned from Pi for boats facebook that Kindle's make good displays.... good in bright daylight/sun and less effect on a nearby compass that an android tab and cheap.

Does an electro-wizz have some ideas how to interface it to typical boat systems? Mine's Raymarine C120W vintage. And to an android device or win 10 PC?

In general what do you think of the idea?

Re: Kindle as Plotter Screen?

Screen updated probably too slow for use as a plotter but people have had success using them with signalk for instrument data.
