Books on Navigation and Rules of the road

I am brushing up on my rules of the road and navigation in preparation for upcoming summer chartering. You do not have to tell me its almost winter there is already snow on the ground here but I am getting an early start in preparing. I am mostly looking at just brushing up on my pilotage skills, chart reading and rules of the road skills and knowledge.

I have Chapmans (20 years old)
Annapolis Book of Seamanship (10 years old)

First question is Loran really the latest and greatest in sailing technology (according to my version of Chapmans)?

Has anything significant changed since these books been published that might get me into trouble if I rely on these texts?

Are there better books to have for this information?
