Rugged Laptop - Ideal for GPS
A rugged a useful means of running GPS in your truck on road or greenlaining.
The CF- 27 is one of Panasonic’s now legendary “fully ruggedised” laptops designed for use in the construction and utility industries. With an almost indestructible Mag alloy case, processor floating in shock absorbing gel, a protected hard drive and a waterproof, dustproof case they’re designed for extreme operating conditions.
I use Fugawi 1:50,000 mapping software, linked to a Garmin handheld GPS unit mounted on the dash. The laptop sits on the centre seat and runs on a power lead from the lighter socket.
The CF- 27 has a 4 gig hard drive, which I hold the whole of the south of england 1:50000 with the whole of the country available on 1:250,000, 1:800,000, and 1:1.M at the same time with plenty to spare.
The CF- 27 is the most fast or sophisticated as modern laptops, but it it’s a great little machine and a swiah laptop hard drive and processor wouldn’t last two minutes in a landrover!
