Will this do it for my new instruments?

Axiom 8 Chartplotter with GPS and Charts
i70s Instrument Value Pack, speed, depth, and wind
i70s Multifunction instrument
EV-100 Autopilot Kit wheel Pilot


Replacing all Raymarine product and wanting to have a better wind instrument for racing and Chartplotter with racing tools to track windshifts.


Any suggestions in other items needed or challenges with this setup? I only have room on my binnacle for chartplotter, Autopilot, and 2 other displays which is the reason for the two i70's.


Dan

Not sure about the axiom 8. But be sure plotter is NOT touch screen only. They are a PITA to use in a seaway—— even on a larger Yacht

you'll have a pilot screen too? so you might only fit one i70. the pilot screen should be able to show some other info as well though

I think that the networked nature of the display will allow me to show those other values on that screen but I like the idea of being able to show speed in big letters on the i70 when we are racing. Also, the binnacle already has holes on both sides of the autopilot for the previous Wind instrument and bi-data so I can cover these holes while I am at it.
I am really hoping that the sailing tools on the new plotter can be visible from the rail easily as well. Apparently the plotter will track wind shifts and tendencies of the wind to help me make good guesses on tactics.
