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

I use Navionics on my Samsung Galaxy Tab, and have found it to be very handy. When I compare it to my Garmin charplotter they seem to agree most if the time. While the touch screen is handy for planning, and looking ahead on the charts, I certainly would not use it as my primary navigation tool. It is purely a back up to the Garmin with it's external antenna and hardwired power. The tablets are a bit too fragile! When the wind picks up or the weather gets bad, the tab goes away!
