The other thread(s) here on smart-phone and tablet navigation are helpful, but my question is a bit different...
I am looking at buying a new Touch. Ostensibly this would put my whole music collection into a plugin format for our new truck with its neat little USB iPod input.
So I got to pondering -- is anyone using one of these for any sort of navigation on their sailboat?
We have an old G4 iBook for the boat navigation and general travel chores that is about to get replaced with a new Apple notebook, in any case.
It appears that the Touch has wifi built in, so I got to thinking (yeah, that's dangerous!) that maybe there are inland waters where it might double as a chart plotter?
Your experiences, oh salty sages?
And no, no iPhone in our immediate future. I am quite happy with a cell phone that has no contract, low cost, and has only one "feature": it takes and makes phone calls, with a large readable screen and big buttons, and is useable in 'bout all lighting conditions.
(It's a Doro, if you're curious.)
Sorry for what may well be a stupid question...
