Re: NOAA To Stop Printing Nautical Charts
A few years ago, I'd be up in arms about this. But I just did a boat inventory. I currently have us charts on:
2) pc at the nav station (openCPN + CM93, Noaa Raster and Navionics)
3) a couple of handheld GPS kept in my ditch kit (Garmin BlueChart)
4) My Android phone and my wife's iphone (Navioncs, EarthNC, other apps)
5) iPad in the forward cabin (navionics app)
For all of you that worry about a lightning strike...I just dont think it'll take out all of those devices. A leak at the nav station dripping water and ruining all of my charts is more likey. In today's day and age..."meh"
Mostly open source, included, or free stuff too.
