Iíll have to say agree with the paper chart rout. I learned that way ,and still today depend on them.

Sure, while I sail by GPS, and rely upon them heavily, I always use my charts, when planning out a trip, and further use them when I make changes to routs.

Todayís modern GPS devises are more accurate than ever, but the charts outside the US, are less precise than desirable; For that reason, a prudent Captain, will always use any and all resources, to insure safe passage.
