Ohhh, what a waste of money
On sunny and bright overcast days this set-up was pretty much unusable. Coming in and out of harbours I found myself spending way too much time shading the ipad to see it and not enough time keeping an eye on the surroundings. I lost
track of the number of times I took the ipad into the cabin
to see the display as even the shade of the boats spray hood
offered little assistance.
Quite frankly, I would have spent less time trying to study the GPS
mapping by bypassing the iPad and going straight to the nav table and looking at the Garmin
When I can figure out how to mount it under the cockpit
table, I'm going to get a Raymarine
C90W or E90W. I assume that their screens are just as good as the Garmin screen
I had on my old Searay which only needed a little "hand shade" to cure the direct sunlight viewing problem.
I think I will relegate the ipad to internal use only.
