Re: Advice Sought for minimalist coastal navigation
My wish list items are radar and an ais on one plotter, with overlay. But if and until that happens the above has worked for me.
You may want to get a separate AIS screen. In areas with heavy traffic the AIS targets are obscuring crucial information. Check out the English Channel on MarineTraffic.com.
