What configuration would:

- Be networked.
- Allow me to view this in weather (cockpit)
- Allow me to have a secondary view at nav station.
- Be redundant.

- PC at nav station for occasional use and for downloading upgrades etc.
- Chartplotter in cockpit

Anyone want to take a shot at brands for the above components?
Raymarine combo radar chartplotter with a repeater screen down below. Other wise just have 2 laptops. One sacrificial for the cockpit.....
