Ipad/ Bad Elf and Which App?

I am finally joining the electronic generation- moving beyond my Don Johnson-Miami Vice phone and depth sounder only combination.

Looked at marine handheld GPSs, but after you add the cost of a GPS and marine chart, you are looking at $250+ for a decent unit.
The Admiral has a wifi only IPad 2 (IOS 4.3.5). Thought I would get the Bad Elf GPS for it. I really like the looks of the ISailor app, but it requires IOS 5.0! I would rather not upgrade the IOS on the IPad, because I WILL mess something up.

Anyone using an Ipad 2 with IOS 4.3? If so, which app would you suggest? INav?? I am not using a chartplotter, just need basic marine charts. Thanks.
