Re: The iPad thread! who uses an iPad for sailing?

On my 4s i have the navionics app and the isailor app and find them both buggy to say the least compared to my marine hardware

Even for use as route planing tools at home with the pretty powerful 4s phone the screen refresh sucks as you drag around a chart

I have to look but one app gives you the lat/lon of a route you plan without compass bearings and the other gives you the compass bearings without lat/lon

The 4s has some level of sunlight viewing the ipad IMHP is useless in sunlight

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
