Re: Garmin Blue Chart Mobile apps - hate to buy charts again

My iPad has its own GPS which is running Polar Navy version now. Unfortunately, its function is rather limited.

Garmin also offers their own GPS

Update:

Garmin has answered my question. It is a NO.

"Thank you for contacting Garmin International. I'll be glad to help here. Only charts purchased through the app are going to be usable in the app. The charts purchased for your 78sc will not load to the app. "

All 3G iPads have a GPS receiver in them.

Minnesail, so how do you know if your external GPS is linked to Garmin Bluechart Mobile?

My wifi only iPad uses an external GPS. I know the Garmin app is connected because the boat icon moves when the boat moves. Also, the GPS has an app that shows that it is running, shows how much battery life remains, and how many satellites it is connected to. Along with a bunch of other data.
