Little job for the boat. Using the tablet for navigation allows more screen on the Lowrance for scanning and more importantly, most lakes in new Zealand don’t have charts so I’ve scanned and geotagged a paper chart to use.

Unit slides up and off leaving just two guides on the dash. These are just held there with double sided tape so no damage to the boat.

why the tractor was built in the first place.
Adding scale detail is easy with a printer. Almost cheating. :twisted:
