For about the same price as the external NMEA 2000 GPS sensor you could buy a tablet that would give you a remote display from the A67 that is usable below decks. Any Android or iOS tablet will do it.
I plan to mount it below decks because there is a radar/chart plotter already on deck, but this system gets the location coordinates from the chart plotter below decks. The chart plotter below decks also inputs the location to the VHF radio and sailing instruments.
