I have been recently getting annoyed dealing with some of the hoops that the salespeople from navionics
have been having me jump through to try to get set up with updates, so I have been looking into alternatives, specifically the raspberry pi chartplotter
I will be using a rpi4 which has two connections for micro-hdmi which I plan to run as a cloned display, with one screen
inside, and one to either replace or sit redundant next to my old lowrance chartplotter
near the helm
Has anyone ever looked into buying
some lcd screens that are meant to be used outside? One of the first items I saw that looked vaguely like what I had in mind was this panel here: https://megadepot.com/product/faytec...screen-monitor
(12v, seemingly waterproof, at least if the connection area is sealed) , but I am open to suggestions for anyone else who took on a project
like this, or if I am not thinking well here. ;0
Also open to a suggestion for a suitable indoor screen
, which would not need to be waterproof in general.
Thanks for reading!
