Check with Frank( Priority One) on this website, he puts together a Toughbook with chartplotter and GPS combined in an almost indestructible package. I bought one and love it . It is visible, and simple.

I realize this post is a couple months old and you've probably already developed a solution  

For anyone else considering the same in the future:

An iPad, iPod, phone, etc. still needs wifi or cellular signal for gps. Otherwise it has no way to communicate with the satellites. You could possibly use your phone as the signal source though.

I use an iPad on the boat with the navionics app, and it works great. The only downsides I have is it is not as easy to mark locations, and if your in direct sunlight it can be hard to see. Under the hardtop it is not a problem. I have a lifeproof case for dealing moisture. As far as gps location it is not a problem, you do not need to be connected to anything to receive gps location. Majority of the time I have my iPad in airplane mode, and never lose location even under the hardtop.
