MysticSkipper is on a distinguished road
I have not been using SeaClear with a GPS, but I have downloaded all of my nearby caost from NOAA and been looking at routes and maps quite a bit. That you may have seen; it appears to be as good as any viewer at showing full detail (they all show the same thing; whatever NOAA has), gives you exact locations for any point and can find a point based on location. Given that, unless the USB connection to GPS has a problem, it should be fine; I can tell the functionality it needs is there and I assume it can get the current location from the GPS as easily as from the user. I posted about it on another board and got a response from someone who has been using it for a while with the GPS and is pleased with it.
