Premium 17

2023: NO LONGER AVAILABLE due to reliability issue and parts unavalability

I love building my navigation systems based on Panasonic Toughbooks. They are rugged, and perfect for a marine environment. Unfortunately, Panasonic doesn’t make a 17 inch unit, and some clients want one. This is where this guy comes in it. It’s a professional grade metal Dell unit with a 17.3 inch screen. This big boy requires an 150W inverter (no 12V adapter is available) to run reliably, and has a 16 x 11 inch footprint. Under normal conditions, it will draw a few dozen watts. It is NOT weather resistant in any way and can ONLY be used inside the cabin. It’s suitable for large vessels. Touch screen is not available. The large matte display is not outdoor viewable, so don’t order it expecting to use it in direct sunshine. If a large and high performance weather resistant unit is needed, consider the premium 15 instead.

You can add almost ALL of the upgrades and options to this model except for touchscreen. Below, I suggest some common packages that people order at different price ranges. You can configure the unit as you please, and I will customize it to your particular needs. Every system is built just for you! Please contact me with any questions, or to order your system.
