navigation software comparison
Without endorsing the site or the software, take a look at www.capjack.com which provides a comparison of the major commercial navigations software. As I recall there''s a pretty comprehensive list of components compared. I''ve used The Capn and found it almost more than needed. It reads most raster graphic charts
on the market. Nobeltec produces a similar program which I''ve tried in an older version. I was pretty impressed by the more seamless and quicker screen updates of the Nobeltec product. Both seem to be the leaders and would give you GPS
, and other equipment interfacing capabilities. Neither reads vector graphics charts
have something to recommend but if I were to spend the equivalent money, I''d go with computer stuff given its versatility and other available applications.
There''s lots more to say and think about. As all the manufacturers and commentators caution, don''t even think of using electronic charting alone.
As I mentioned in my last reply, I''d be happy to talk or "chat" via email. Drop me a line
