High Tech on the High Seas

From what I''ve read, it seems that sailing and communications technology is on the verge of what I want. That is, integrating GPS, chartplotter, auto pilot and radar with navigation software on a laptop computer that has internet connectivity from anywhere in the world by means of a satellite phone or SSB radio. Is this concept still future state, or is it now possible? Has anyone seen it or done it?
