I mounted a swing arm at the chart table. The laptop sits too low to view properly, causing neck strain. The arm raises the laptop screen up to proper eye level. I then use a wireless keyboard & mouse on the table. The laptop is secured to the arm and allows easier access to the storage under the lift top table.
But I haven't answered your question...I use a plotter at the helm! I have a radar; laptop software to feed a radar image is more expensive than the plotter! Plus the plotter is much more viewable in daylight and better suited for the elements. More durable & reliable too. The laptop with seaclear is for backup or planning. Eventually I might figure out how to load routes from seaclear to the plotter but I doubt it. It can be done with CF cards.
