chart plotters

Just a few thoughts - since I''m considering the same:

- PC will probably have a higher amp draw

- PC represents significantly more components to potentially degrade due to rust

- PC screens tend to show poorly in bright sunlight

- If you need to mount the chartplotter at the helm, a PC is a poor substitute for a rugged Garmin product.
