Re: PC Chartplotter advice?
Thank you for the suggestions. I was wondering about the navionics iPad app? It was unclear to me on whether or not the charts were worthwhile, and detailed enough, for the general Vancouver, Howe Sound and Gulf Islands region. You think they're sufficiently detailed and practical? I always have paper charts at hand for those iffy situations and when the IT acts up.
As for an antenna, I would definately go with one that can be placed remotely under a clear view, and having a signal indicator would be helpful as well.
Is the system you're talking about relatively easy to set-up and use?
