    Ben, your July PMY article is BRILLIANT. There should be a marine literary award in there for you on this one!

    Your link to the shady view of the instruments is actually to the full-sun view:
    “Pop up the bigger image to see how different they look than when in the shade of a pilot house (or electronics lab).”

    Have you looked at the lifetime of the OLED displays? Short lifetime is the primary reason OLED displays have been slow to reach the marketplace in consumer products. It would be good to know how long your (my) expensive new gear would be expected to last.

    I know I can live with the lifetime of OLED displays being limited to 17,000 hours (as compared to 60,000 hours for LCD).
    As OLED is used in small televisions now (large televisions are some years off), I am confused why the graphics capabilities of the display are limited. Is that a limitation of the software, or a way to get the display costs way down?

    Can I share these links (June and July) with my sailing club ?
