If you google 'Sea Clear" you will find a chart plotting program you can download for free. i think it works quite well, though it doesnot have the bells and whistles and alarms. It works with noaa charts. I have just used the program on my laptop to sail from Milwaukee, WI into Canada and I was very happy with it. In Canada, however, with no electronic charts, I am back to the old fashion way - plotting my position and using parallel rules to determine course. GPS makes this a lot easier than the really old days of a hand bearing compass.
