Can anyone shed any light on why the dramatic cost increase in  GPS/FISHFINDER units when the screens are over nine inches. TV sets are seven hundred for large screens. The software I think is the same. Large boats have TV sets on them and they seem to hold up. As we get older I'm sure the guys would like something easier to see.

there are some actual differences between marine LED screens and your average iPad or TV LED screen.  marine screens actually do use better tech to be sharper, brighter, viewable in sunlight, with fewer amps consumed, wider viewing angles and ranges of operating temperatures.


also, they are not as mass produced so you lose some economy of scale.


“marine” too, of course :p
