Most know that I am a paper chart kind of guy. But I do have a Win 8.1 tablet that will do everything an Ipad will. My Asus Vivo Tab Smart cost less that my wife's Ipad Air.

Laptop based navigation is in many standards that I teach. I also have most lessons and some presentations on PowerPoint.

The tablet stays below. I use a Tree Frog Pad to keep it in place on a nav table.
