Re: How much do you use your Chartplotter?
Unless I am tied up in a slip, my chartplotters are on 24/7. At anchor, just being able to look at the bread crumb trail to see how the boat is swing at anchor is nice. At night, I use it as my anchor alarm (along with a hand held GPS in my bunk).
Mine (I have two mounted side by side), don't use enough juice, especially with my solar panels, to make it work cutting them off.
