Re: Minimal Electronics reqirements and alternatives
A technically savvy friend who cruises away from his home port for several month per year swears by a pc running Sea Clear with connections to his auto-helm, a GPS puck, and a wi-fi hot spot. He also has a garmin 76 in a cup holder at the binnacle. His only other electronics a depth sounder and radar which he claims to rarely use because of the power demand.
