GPS V and BlueChart
I picked up an older Garmin GPS V at a pawn shop. I really just needed speed info because my knot paddle is fouled and this was cheap.
But now that I have it, i'm confused about what all it is capable of.
If I get a copy of BluChart does it get loaded in the unit or will it work with a laptop like a chart plotter ?
For the sailing I do I'd never spend the money on such luxury but if I can cobble it together real cheap in might be nice.
The unit as it is now just tells you where you are (lat/long and basic land mass shape) There is no ATON info.
In over my head?

What is all this stuff and how does it work?
