Anyone using a screen bigger than 4.3?

I recently saw some 7 inch truck GPS's and it seems that the Dakar bikes use bigger screen GPS's. I want to be able to glance down and see without my damn reading glasses. OK I'm getting old!

I'm a lot taller when I lie down

OK I've ridden bikes all my life and know all the stories of how lowering a bike changes the geometry/ground clearance, etc. I don't care. I want to buy a KTM EXC for exploring but a 38 inch seat...
