As for my concern about getting the screen wet, it has not been an issue. I keep a towel at the helm to quickly wipe my hands before touching screen if I have been out on deck. That’s something I did with the old push-button units, so not much has changed… except my perception that touch screens have no place on fishing boat. Fact is, touch screens work well on any boat. They are the wave of the future. In the not-too-distant future, we’ll all look back and chuckle over the old days when our marine electronics used push-button menus, just like we laugh now about the days of Loran-C and paper graphs.
