Re: NOAA To Stop Printing Nautical Charts
A few years ago I was docked next to a Canadian flagged boat that had a large lcd or led screen mounted in the cabin bulkhead to display charts. Should have asked the guy more about it. I don't believe it was a touchscreen. It may not have been waterproof but it was surely much larger, probably 20" or so, than most common plotters. One option that does not seem to be available on plotters (at least those available to us mortals) is the ability to attach a large, remote touchscreen. It would be nice to be able to clearly see more of the big picture without having to constantly zoom in and out on a 5-10" micro-screen.
