Re: Garmin and Navionics Apps

Being something of a computer geek (it pays the bills) I have both of those as well as iNavX, Navimatics Charts & Tides, and EarthNC Marine Charts. I haven't used them extensively at this point but so far I like EarthNC best, then Garmin. EarthNC uses digitized NOAA raster charts, which I like, maybe just because I'm more used to using paper charts than a chart plotter. The downside is that you're limited to the USA. They do have separate apps apparently for a few other areas (Bahams, Brazil, NZ).
