I supply rugged heavy duty Panasonic Toughbook laptops for marine navigation. Occasionally, people also use them as a rugged marine diagnostic laptop. Please note that I do not sell the diagnostic software or dongles, just a rugged laptop to run them!
Advantages of using a Toughbook for marine diagnostics
- Heavy duty metal case and waterproof with port covers.
- Outdoor viewable displays.
- USB / RS-232 (serial port) / Bluetooth available to connect to any marine diagnostic dongle.
- Highly customizable to your precise needs and modular.
- Affordable pricing for the refurbished units I supply.
- If you want to have marine charts & GPS on the unit as well, I can help!
Please contact me and I’ll help you pick the right marine diagnostic Toughbook for your needs!
Examples of marine diagnostic software you can run
Pretty much anything that runs on any version of Windows can be accommodated. Just tell me the exact version and type of software you plan to run, and I’ll supply a rugged Toughbook which will run it perfectly! If the software comes on DVD’s don’t forget to tell me that so I make you get one with a disk drive.
Popular marine diagnostic laptop Toughbooks
In my experience, the 10, 13, and 15 inch Toughbooks are the most popular for this application. Each one can be offered with different amounts of RAM, CPU, HDD or SSD storage, and various version of Windows. I have a dozen different models to choose from. The cost would range from around $400 to around $1000 depending on the configuration and precisely what you need. Rather than outlining every single option and technical combination available, I would prefer to speak to you about it. I won’t try to upsell you more than you actually need and will describe both a minimum configuration for your exact marine diagnostic software, and a recommended one. We can discuss the level of elements exposure you’ll be dealing with, and more.

Why get a Navigation Laptop from me?
My systems can be much more affordable than Garmin, Lowrance, Simrad, B&G, Furuno, Humminbird, Raymarine, Si-Tex and will be supported forever! Furthermore, I’m inclined to argue that some of the commercial chart plotter brands gouge their customers. Companies force clients to upgrade by no longer supporting older units. In addition, they charge exorbitant fees for simple things like a bigger screen size. Take a look at other advantages as well.
