    I know this about electronics, but seeing the OCC burgee put a smile on my face!

    Ben,
    I find it interesting that you have the large screens above and the small ones below. Wouldn’t you want the larger screens, best resolution, etc, down below, in your foul weather helm?

    It’s largely a matter of available space, Raul, but I also like to be on the flybridge in fog and when gunkholing close to shore, ledges etc. Plus there’s a 12″ charting PC also at the lower helm. The three 7-inch screens are a dite low for stand up navigation but do work well with my Muvman stool.

    I wish I didn’t purchase my TZ Touch 9″ in December and I hope that the $1500 rebates come back so I can upgrade to a 14″

    Nice! Furuno slashed the retail price of the TZT14 by two thousand dollars, to a very competitive $5,695. Other TZT and NavNet MFD model prices also substantially cut:

    so Ben,
    How are the glass bridge displays doing. Any new insights to provide us insight with?

    Don, I think the glass bridge style and general architecture is great and here to stay for quite a while. In fact, Raymarine just went more glass bridge today:

    I’ll have more on the new eS Series in a day or two.
