I don't think you'll find a computer that's up to the job without looking at military grade robustness. Even then, airborne saltwater will get in there somehow. A base unit with solid state storage (rather than disk drive) might help but don't expect any guarantee. Waterproof displays tend to be pricey as well.

Probably cheaper to buy the wheelhouse or get a chartplotter

If you want an in-between option, you can transfer waypoints and routes to/from Maxsea with a Garmin SD card.

Thank you mike
I really want to use that software cause i have access with it to the normal map ,sedimentology map, aerials photos of the coast and a very pre
cise map of the wrecks, and i can overlay one over each other
As a professional fishing Guide, it is very important to have access to these informations i hope i'll fin a solution
All the best
Another solution is may be a T-Top with the electronic box
All the best
