mounting Ram mount

Case circa 100 Software 30-50 mount depends on what you need, i share the mount between my motorbike and the boat so i have 2 bases and 1 connector on the case.

I've used it for 18 months on boat and bike and had no problems with water ingress.

Thanks for that
I like the idea of that size screen with a chart plotter
I will have to see about a USB connector via the boat

The new Simrad GO7 touch screen will replace my broken NSS7. I already have the op40 installed to use the rotary controller and buttons. The Go7 is cheaper than Nss7 evo2 and has the same interface and speed. The GO7 units were announced this week.

We bought the Raymarine A67 for our 28' sailboat and tested it on my RIB. It was hardly usable in any spray. The NSS 7 first generation with the 6.4 display was much less sensitive to spray, even it has a touch screen.

Similar to mine I also have a boot that fits on the plug, and seals on the socket

Touch screens are an absolute wast of time on a rib.the Raymarine dragonfly units are great,we have three of them on our boats the only fault is the rather large transducer which is a bit vulnerable

Surprised by all the hate for touch screens on a rib! If you get the right gloves (no more expensive than normal ones) then you can use it with them on. Touchscreen is unbeatable at rest as it's just so easy to use. If it's raining or extremely rough then you just set up the route and lock the screen so it doesn't pan around or anything silly. Coming from a Raymarine E classic our Garmin 7012 was an absolute revelation. Go for as big a screen as you can fit or afford! I remember a couple of years ago a guy fitted a 5015 to his Cougar RIB - it almost filled the whole console

It's not the glove issue for me it's the heavy rain issue that seems to confuse the heck out of the touchscreen. Heavy rain usually equals low vis which is when you need the nav to be reliable. I'm thinking of making advisor for mine

Always use a plotter that has buttons or a hybrid screen. In rough weather or when wet you cant operate a touch screen. Regarding screen size, the bigger the better, provided it fits your dash
