My questions are for Maxsea/TZ charts/software users:
Are you using a computer or a MFD for Maxsea?
Which MFD if I may ask?
Do you have 1 screen or 2 screens - Navigation Table / Helm ?
Any good electronician to recommend in France or in the US that will accept to advise remotely and provide products?
sv Viva came with a rugged desktop from KEP (France) with Windows 7, Maxsea/ Time Zero installed as chart plotter software and a screen at the navigation table. I am currently in Fiji and I invested significantly in maps for Maxsea since the Med.
The desktop is interfaced to all sensors and everything is working fine.
But I really would like a display of the chart at the helm.
The first and simple approach would be to add a water-proof display at the helm. It will be an extended screen for windows and must have a strong luminosity (2000 cds/m2).
I found Octofax (3000$), Furuno (5000$)
The second approach is to buy a new MFD (Mutli-Function Display e.g., Furuno and the like) that will drive everything. The maps may or may not be re-usable. The existing will have to be re-wired. The cost is above 7000$.
Any help greatly appreciated
Thank you so much
