I use the chartplotters for determining headings and then usually use the compass while checking the plotters for cross track error. The depth sounder is the most important instrument on board though. In poor visibility or heavy traffic radar is what I'm looking at. Paper charts and Coast Pilot and usually a variety of cruising guides are always out and referenced.
