Has anyone put a chartplotter at helm station?

Hi,
I was wondering if anyone has put a small chartplotter at the helm station? I am considering this for my Mahe when it arrives but as I dont have access to one here on the West coast, I cant decide where it would be best to put it. I am looking to put a Garmin 3006C out there. If you have put on it a picture would be terrific.
thanks in advance,
Lori

Hello,
I am to be in LaRochelle Oct. 24 to test sail Mahe 36 and tour the factory. I hope to take delivery in France late Spring. What question would you be interested in asking the factory and what are your thoughts about taking this boat across the Atlantic.

There isn't much room at the helm for a big chartplotter, the Furuno 7" unit can fit. there is also a depth issue at the helm, you really don't have enough depth for the 10" Furuno unit before it hits the wood access panel on the gallery wall. I don't know about the Garmin, I would wait till I got the boat before purchasing a unit. I would also like to say that the Furuno package that came with the boat has been nothing but problems for me and it still doesn't work after 3 months of Furuno working on it. If I could, I would not get the electronics package. BTW, the Furuno stuff is not available in the U.S., you have to deal with Furuno France for support and replacements.

Thanks for the info Scott. I was planning on the garmin 3005c (5" display) or 3006c (6" display) unit which I think are smaller in size than the furuno but I can check this out online. I wasnt planning on the furuno....too expensive and I already have the maps for the garmin and dont need a fancy network. The bluechart maps have worked well for me and I can always use a computer with the bluechart maps. Whatever I do I wll make sure that the unit I buy is returnable. Did you install the furuno 7" at the helm? I am trying to figure out where I might put mine from looking at pictures on the web...kinda difficult. It seems like the lower left side is where it might fit best but wont make any final decisions until I get the boat. If anyone has a picture that would really help.
thanks again,
Lori

Factory visit

Hi,

Just got back from a factory visit and a sea trail, which was fantastic.

Got to see some of the changes, which are being made to the production models.

The seat has been replaced, an additional hatch in the front window and a fuel gauge on the instrument panel, plus the new engine controls at the helm. All good improvements.

Wont be long before they start to build ours...!

I really do not like the new seat,I don't think it is going to be very confortable....nice to see a fuel gage and a hatch.The engine control are really hard to shift,I can see why they changed them.
