NCountry is on a distinguished road
Garmin handheld, lap top, Opencpn.org, NOAA nautical charts. Plug handheld into usb on lap top. Works GREAT! Very accurate. Through the barrier reefs coming into the Keys and the Hawk Channel I was able to call out depths to the helm to within 1 foot of accuracy. Even the old sailors were impressed. Great stuff and the price is right. (Opencpn and the NOAA charts are free!)
