We're approaching decision time for mounting a 12" display at the helm. The Manatee has a slightly up sloped center "dash" & we have at least 3 MFD mounting options. We do want to keep the MFD centered. A standard simple trunnion mount, a NavPod encapsulated mount or building a fixed fiberglass console as another Manatee owner already has. Sorry, can't recall who... ident please for radar identification.
The first two allow angle adjustment, the third does not but it is our current preferred style.
Our question is: What is the preferred angle of viewing the MFD...Straight on or tilted back at what degree?
Or...because the Manatee's pilot house is so bright & glare can be a problem, maybe having the MFD at a fixed angle might not be the best option lending us to re-consider the NavPod. Your thoughts please.
