waterproof slave screen at the helm options

I think there has has been a discussion earlier about waterproof screens but I can't find it.

What are the options for waterproof screens for relaying the opencpn screen from below? For me it is enough to have a slave screen at the helm, all navigation is done below at the navigation table.

Have anyone tried tha PixelQi?

Are there any navigators with external video output that can be used?

Re: waterproof slave screen at the helm options

One of the boats I sailed recently for a couple of months had an IEI TDM waterproof industrial touchscreen in the cockpit and an ARK 3202 industrial 12V PC with dual video output and another 12V monitor inside. The touchscreen monitor was not advertised as sunlight viewable, and indeed the visibility was sometimes poor. Otherwise it was OK.

The touchscreen was OK with OCPN, but with Navsim (lots and lots of tiny icons) it was very hard to use...
