ActiveCaptain was released when Palm and Windows Mobile devices were being sold. It's now available offline on 17 products (the 17th released this week) not including Garmin's upcoming BlueChart Mobile product for iOS.

It runs across Windows, Macintosh, iPhone, iPad, Droid/phones, Android tablets, Palm devices, and Windows Mobile. There are about 200,000 users today who have generated nearly 3 million user updates.

The revenue generation model works and it is profitable today. By the end of the year it should break even financially across the 6 years it has been available. A continuous stream of income guarantees that it'll continue on for many years.

Hopefully it'll stop being old fashioned eventually and become easier to use. Then perhaps, it'll be successful I guess.
