You can use the Eldridge if you want, but the Navionics programs as do the others will give you spot on current information in the area you want to rtravel including current spped and direction at varying times throughout the tide cycles that you input. They will even give you the vector

I found for planing purposes the IPAD with these programs are great and easier than using charts etc as you can measure distances, tides, currents etc easier in many ways.

JOrge when you get your IPAD why dont we get together and meet somewhere halfway for,lunch or drinks. I have some other cool apps you might like also.
