Coastal explorer and.....

Maptech Navigator Pro are actually the same program and are excellent. The Pro is bundled with Maptech charts. Download a trial copy of Coastal Explorer (the trial will not allow the GPS interface but will allow you to see how the program works). Just be careful trusting your life and your boat to Bill Gates. You don't want the "blue screen of death" to pop up as you are transiting a narrow reef entrance at night. I always like to have one actual chart plotter on board.
