Let me know how that works out for you

Both have uses that work in different conditions
Actually, I have some padeyes placed to secure the Toughbook right under the dodger. It works out pretty well and is not sticking way up above the pedestal, ready to snag lines as some nav clusters seem to be. Many of the pedestal-mounted GPS units do look very nice but most are above my budget for new stuff. Having a big hi-res touchscreen right there in front of you has got to be nice if it can be mounted in such a way as to not get in the way when it gets rough and rolling.
