All posted reviews, phone numbers, controlling depths, services available, frequencies, etc, etc are available in Charts and Tides. All offline too. No need for wifi or 3G connection. Just update periodically when they are available.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
