If so would they post the configuration here so we Luddites can try and copy it :-)
Just a word of caution: these systems require a fair amount of learning
and effort. So if you haven't already got hours of nerdly experience under your belt, or don't relish the commitment to doing same... you would be further ahead by buying
a small 12v industrial computer or an older laptop, putting Linux
on it, and then installing OpenCPN
and other navigation applications.
With that said - here's a starting point
I run some pi boards at home but have loaded boating
stuff on an old laptop running Linux
. Its just less hassle.
