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

I have both an ipad, and an iphone. Both run either iNavX or MotionX.

I have found that InavX is the much better plotting software, and it has a lot more configurability than the other chart plotting software i have tried. Right now I have an Imux broadcasting all my boats NMEA date (from raymarine instruments) the the Idevices. which allows me to control all the instruments onboard right from my ipad.

While motoring I often sling a hammock between the forestay and the mast and make course corrections with my iphone.

Next up is to try out the raymarine new apps... i haven't installed the new chartplotter (but it is sitting in my living room). So more information then.
