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

I've been experimenting with using iNavX on my iPad. Mostly so far so good though I do wish iNavX had options for showing split screen chart and data. I also wish there was a way to turn off the iPad screen without putting it to sleep.

I bought a RAM mount for attaching it to the pedestal guard - the one with a U bolt for mounting it to bike handlebars. The RAM mount works well and was not expensive. I also have a NMEA wifi interface but it's the Comar NMEA-2-WiFi instead of the more well known imux.
