Re: Ipad/ Bad Elf and Which App?

Take a crack at the $25 Charts and Tide App. It's not the most powerful app, but its incredibly easy to use, will show you your location on the chart and has both tidal, current and active captain data. Can't beat it, IMO, if you're not really looking for a full capable nav app, but only some secondary data.

I'm not sure where the mini came from. I would have strongly recommended buying a new iPad with internal GPS. You are NOT required to turn on the bundled 3G/4G service for the gps receiver to work. Bad Elf is fine, but clunky. They also make a bluetooth external reciever, which has the advantage of being able to remain plugged into a cig lighter and staying fully charged all the time.

Jeanneau 54DS

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.

Thanks for the tip, will try that out before we try the Ocracoke trip.
Using the wife's mini instead of the Ipad, because the Ipad had the older IOS. No data plan, just the Bad Elf GPS.
