Does anyone use an iPad or such on their boat with the Navionics app? I'm kinda rethinking the console on my boat and am trying to decide if I want to install an SI graph in front of me or an iPad I can use for the charts. I would probably still use a GPS on the SI unit I am looking at buying so I can have reference for the sonar images but I think the main navigation will be with the iPad.
As for that note, does anyone know who makes custom panels for consoles? I need to basically rearrange the gauges to make room for whatever I decide to do as well as have the hole cut for the iPad or graph.

I do but you must be aware that under a bright sun the screen is barely visible.
I'm running a Gen3 and I always link my IPad with my Gen3 to improve or create maps.
I also use a lighter adapter wth usb plug-in to keep my IPad charge.

How do you have the iPad mounted on the boat? Don't they also have anti-glare screen protectors that help with the sun on the screen issue?

I used to have my Ipad mounted in the dash of my 2012 Skeeter FX 20. I used the lifeproof case with the lifeproof cradle and utilized the hole in the dash from the flush mount 998 that was in the dash. I loved it because I could do a lot of stuff on the Ipad such as weather, music etc. I will see if I have any pics of my install.

Pics would be nice. Did you take it out for something else or do you not have that boat anymore?

At the time, I had an 1198 still Ram mounted to the side of the console as well. And now with Sonar Charts live, you can watch the contours be updated as you fish.

Only reason I removed it was because I Sold the boat.
