Default Gauge alternatives

http://www.speedhut.com/gauges/

I`m tired of the Livorsi/ Autometer monopoly and no other options, these are designed for cars but I~m wondering whats the difference in MARINE gauges besides the 'bend over its for a boat' upcharge??

What are the thoughts on these gauges? So many more custom features....A GPS speedo with much more user info:

Is this a marine set up? If not I wonder how it would stand up to the pounding? Sometimes you get what you pay for.
Myself, if I were going to replace my gauges I would go with the Autometer, I always liked their customer service.
Just my 2 cents

What happens if this display gets wet? Salt water?
