Re: Chart plotter or IPad

I love my iPad 2 and the Navionics app. I just need to remember that the app and it's routes are in degrees True, as the app does not account for mag Variation. So, you need to apply variation the any courses created on the app if you plan to follow your regular compass while on that route. If you follow the route on the iPad, your are ok, but on old timer like me follows the compass.

On the other hand, my Raymarine E-80 chart plotter has a Navionics Gold chip, and it accounts for variation. That is handled through the Raymarine setup menu.
