nRoute works very well but I find it frustrating that one does not have tracking within BlueChart any longer. Garmin has perfected the art of developing good products but then supporting them for only a short period forcing people to purchase updated products relatively frequently. I have stopped doing that at this point and simply regard the Garmin charting materials as overviews. For detail one can use Garmin GPS position data with a number of the relatively low-cost programs that can utalize the free charts that can be down-loaded from the Web.

FWIW...

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."
