Re: Should screens be at helm or forward facing nav station?

Our boat has twin wheels but there was enough room at the end of the cockpit table to mount a Scanstrut pod and put in a Raymarine e series. The pod is mounted on a ball and socket and can swivel to face either helm. Like many new generation mfds, I can connect my iPad to it and mirror the display so I can do route planning from the comfort of the cabin down below. That saves on the expense of putting a second unit at the nav station.
