Re: Help With Offshore Navigation

you need to listen to everyone here, if you don't get that your gps tells you where you are, gives you lattitude and longitude of your position and read a chart that willl gives you lat and lon of where you want to go and you program that into your gps, then you need to read, your manual and figure it out, research online, go to the library get a book, do some research dude, don't expect everyone here to tell you how to do it. you need to learn how, or ask someone that knows what their doing or least knows more than you to go with you and will show you the ropes. Go to sailors exchange in St. Augstine and see if they have a used chart plotter. map and gps all in one but you need the experience if something goes wrong. Alot can go wrong and it can turn very serious in a heart beat. Have fun but respect the ocean she takes no prisoners.
