I have a Toughbook with a built in GPS and Bluetooth. It works great anywhere on the boat and you can see the screen on deck in the bright sun. have the smaller CF-18 that allows you to swivel the screen around so you are just holding a small tablet. I am running the Nobletec software with C-maps that you get free from NOAA. I am looking at getting the Raymarine system and hope that I can interface the toughbook to the features of the raymarine. I got a re-conditioned (basically new that some tech guy used for a month) for around $2700. Hope this helps.
