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.
You are being led astray by bullsh!t.
The iPad works properly, it's not a rip off. The GPS works in the MIDDLE of the ocean as do the charts. You do NOT need to be connected to the web, cell phone or near a tower for the GPS or Charts.
You really need to sit with someone who knows what they are talking about and have a look at one. If you are anywhere near me please feel free to come look.
I am in St Augustine, Florida. And I'm sure any person near you would do the same.
