Question NAV/RADAR Monitor Size

The older I get the more I like big screens so I can see things better. (Galaxy Note 3, was last "big screen" purchase). My question is as far as I can see on line, in order to get a large NAV/RADAR screen it must be a dedicated unit, I'm not finding the ability to plug into a larger generic type monitor. If this assumption is correct then it appears the boating community is being raped by the manufactures. I mean a 17" or 19" monitor cost a couple hundred bucks. but if you want that same size display for marine nav/radar it will cost you more than 10 thousand? Heck, and some of those aren't even waterproof at all, or only from the front, so what's so special?!?!
I'm just doing some studying, trying to decide if retiring on a boat is financially feasible for me, so thanks in advance for any answers for this newbie.
