Our broadband radar is an overlay on the chartplotter so the repeater on deck shows both chart and radar targets. AIS targets also can be shown. You can see there is not much room at the binacle and the compass is top center. The repeater will most likely go on port to the left of the companionway.

For the area and type of sailing I do (in Maine) and for the use of radar I agree with Mainesail, the chartplotter belongs at the helm. There is just too much detail that can not be seen at a distance. For other situations maybe, but I just can not think of any where I would not want it at the helm. Long passages, maybe down below but then I'd want it back at the helm if I was entering a crowded harbor. It just seems to me that in most instances it is needed at the helm.
