It seems you've misunderstood. The reason I asked was because I can no longer connect to the pacor. The iPad has replaced the old tablet PC. The convoluted process of having another PC aboard, then transferring via iTunes seems archaic. In the age of having apps that do everything from charting, to anchor alerts, I'm surprised there isn't one that allows a direct connect.
