Upgrade E90w+E120W to e7+iPad?


I was doing some research and realized my E90W/120W do not have wifi built in. Then I started wondering, why don't I sell these (I have a E90W at the nav table and E120W at the helm) and replace with an E7 at the nav table and an iPad at the helm?

Any thoughts/pointers? Anything else I should consider?

Re: Upgrade E90w+E120W to e7+iPad?

I have the e7d at nav and iPad at helm. Only problem I ever had is if you are exposed to the weather as we were on last boat and you have one of those plastic covers for the iPad it goes nuts every time you touch it or a water drop goes on it as it thinks this is your finger. Newer covers may be better but unless you have a covered cockpit I wouldn't go down that route again. We now have a enclosed cockpit so all good and works great.
