Ipad meets ActiveCaptain?

This could be old news so forgive me if this has already been discussed, but with the recent 'discovery' of ActiveCaptain - The Interactive Cruising Guidebook - Marina Reviews, Fuel Prices, Anchorages, and the recent release of the Ipad, I was pretty intrigued to see this on Panbo:

Panbo: The Marine Electronics Weblog: AC on an iPad, Android coming too

I've already got a Garmin 4208 at the nav station down below, but for $500 I am thinking an Ipad (I'm assuming GPS connectivity?) with this software would be an invaluable asset as a navigational supplement at a pricepoint miles below that of standard chartplotters on the market today. Thoughts?
