Re: Best iPhone and iPad apps for sailing

I obviously need to do more research on this. I did not realize that the charts were not stored on the device but streamed. That sounds iffy at best.
No signal=no chart. So out of cell range or in weak signal places they would be essentially useless. Dropping your phone call is one thing, dropping your plotter is quite another. Great info., thanks.
