I plan to try this out on the boat. I have a 17" Video Monitor I am going to mount on my console to see how it works. What do you think?

The subject line should be 898 to 1798 :-)

I like it, is that a 17" video monitor that runs on 12 volts?

Invertor of some kind and looks like anybody could be in business. Big Screens on crappie rigs....coming to a lake near you. ;)

in all seriousness, that really would be great to use to have 2 displays, one at the wheel, and one up front by the trolling motor, so you could use it while trolling with the tm too. care so share how you did the wiring? I am getting my 898 next week sometime.

The New 898 comes with a video out port. I simply ordered the video cable online which has 2 RCA connections on the end.

I went to my backyard yesterday evening while the sun was still up to see how well I could see the 17" monitor screen in the sun light here are the results.

You have some glare, but all in all it looks like it would be of help, especially to those of us who have a hard time seeing. Good job.

Well, now your gonna have trouble seeing where your going! Cool, but how the heck you supposed to drive with that thing on your console? Hey, with one of those, I could probably get the kids to go with me. Hook up the X-box and they would sit out there all day!

Amen to that! My son plays the video games all the time.:( I'm taking him fishing in the morning and I hope we can catch a few, but the main thing is being together away from the video games.

.... next time you post pics of your electronics array, I want to see those Crappie Condos on the screen (& not gathering dust in the back yard) Rofl !!!

HA !!! caught ya, didn't I ... you let those buckets full of PVC pipes get caught in your pics Doh

How well do the screens show up, if the Sun is shining directly ON them, and not just backlighting them :confused:

... cp :cool:

I am looking at doing the same thing- but how big is too big? They make waterproof moniters 17", 19", 20+". Would 19" be overkill? 24"?

GEEZ man. Bet you could get a 17 inch flat screen and mount it in a frame somewhere to keep the water off it. LOVE THAT

Waterproof? I know before this goes too far someone will have to go big and put a 42" flat screen on just for laughs. Wind signature comes to mind too when zooming down the lake.

I like the concept but I dont think the video monitor will hold up due to moisture in a marine environment. Did I hear someone say 55". lol

Is the video monitor waterproof?

What cable do you use for this?
i would like to view my recording on a TV or computer screen.
I know you can use Huminview but this looks like it may be better.\\
