We want something compact and mobile. We don't want something that has to wait to 'spin up' of where you have to use a joystick to 'find' your target.

Also sorry for talking over this thread...

Learning to sail - that's great! You really don't need it in the GL - most every vessel has AIS. Where it's needed is in the waters off Africa and Indonesia - pirate waters. We put the FLIR up high up on the mast to see forward and the Oceanview on the stern to see aft. Most of our problems are with naval vessels turning off their AIS and you're blind.
