Re: How much do you use your Chartplotter?

Oh yeah, - I totally forgot about hardware that is not designed to only be a Chartplotter...

* I use my Garmin GPSMAP 478 anytime while underway, and frequently while at anchor as an anchor drag alarm, assuming that I have not left it in the car.
* I also have a laptop onboard that runs PolarView NS, that is on 90% of the time when under way.
* I also have my Android smartphone on which I run SailDroid for speed/compass, and DragQueen as another anchor drag alarm.
