I have seen, and read people using iphones. The charts are extremely inexpensive. I think I was $10 for Mexico, and Central America. While in Panama one owner showed me how his worked, and it was really fantastic.

I use a laptop, Maptec charts, and Maptec program. All od the USA charts are free, so that's a huge bonus. We also have a hockey puck type GPS that plugs into the laptop. A used laptop, hockey puck, and free charts. For about $350 you are good to go.

We also have several handhelds, and a wall mounted GPS, and paper charts for anywhere we go........i2f
