Furuno DRS4W Wireless Radar

Been reading about the Furuno wireless radar ... When sailing my paper charts are my bible in concert with Inavx on an iPad. One of the most outstanding negative comments is the iPad screen in sunlight . I know the shortcomings of the iPad display in sunlight as I do use it for navigation. Yes I do have to shade the screen but I get along with that shortcoming very well.
I am trying to stay away from loading the boat with electronics that takes a mini-nuke to run. So this seems like a low cost option to add radar to the boat.
Oh... And they say the screen is hard to read in sunlight ???????? Ever sailed in thick Maine fog ????? Sunlight, NOT.
Anyway looking for comments good and bad
Oh BTW... If things go to zero/zero .... I'm retired, don't have to move for days
