I use an iPad to run navionics , works a treat and very portable and easy to use with touch screen

I recently got a 12V 95W powr supply from Jaycar. It runs the laptop OK, and will charge if laptop is off or in sleep.

Tried 300w inverter but as you say not very efficient
Then managed to find a laptop that actually ran on 12v but these aren’t easy to find and limit your options
If I was to do it now would try something like this. https://www.ebay.com...r-/301916994954

There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats

I got a 12v car charger for a HP laptop on the boat - works great.
I think I got it from PB Tech - be careful about the el cheapo ones from Jaycar.
The one I got also has two USB ports on it. very handy.
