Might work, although a decent instrument is likely to outlive the current
choices in entertainment media. Imagine trying to find 8 tracks for that old
Datamarine depth gauge. ;-)

If you could convince the sailing instrument manufacturers to incorporate a
music/video record/layback system and install a headphone jack, they'd
probably be able to sell a lot more and write off their investments a lot
sooner. Just a thought.

Thought I'd chime in on Nexus gear.  I put a full system on a previous boat
and never had any problems with it.  Accurate, easy-to-read displays, with
good information options and interfaces.

My ONLY reluctance about Nexus is that they aren't in common usage and
because of that, I wonder how long the company will be in existence.  But
their instruments are very good (in my anecdotal experience).

Garmin's sail instruments haven't been out very long, so I agree with a
former poster who was reluctant to go that direction until they've been
proven, but Garmin sure seems like a company that will be around for a long

Does anyone else agree that sail instruments seem to be absurdly overpriced
in these days of electronics becoming cheaper??
