And if I want to display a chart on two units (I prefer to have one zoomed out for context, and one zoomed in) that's...$800 in chips. I don't need the absolute best charts, but at those prices I'm going to look somewhere else...maybe a couple of iPads (I'm happy enough with the Navionics charts on my iPhone, but they are more like $10 each).
Or I could use a couple of tablets running Coastal Explorer. And I already have Garmin's BlueCharts for a handheld.
Hell, maybe I'll just get a couple of R80s on EBay - I already have a bunch of CMAP NT+ cartridges as well.
