Well, the AP failure has lead to upgrading some electronics
Questions for those who have experience with both 7" and 9" chart plotters:
1. Can you overlay the radar
over the chart? (Raymarine E series)
2. If you can overlay - is the screen
info still useful at night when Wx is rough?
3. If you can't overlay radar
on chart - Is 7" too small for split screen
viewing? (Was just introduced to reading glasses last year
4. Or do you simply toggle between chart/radar screens to get the whole picture?
In a nutshell, I have to decide between a 7" or 9" display that will include both radar and chart pages. We currently have a 7" chart plotter, but do not have radar displayed at the helm
Sharing your experience, especially in night/fog situations, with this size display is appreciated. Thx. Caleb C
