Re: Economical Hand-Held Chartplotter?
MarkCK, you might start with iSailor on the iphone. It's free, and you can download and play with a few free charts, then if you like it, buy the charts for your area. If you're in the US, each region is cheap. I'm in Canada, and the charts are more expensive here. You download the charts from within the app. It's in the setup menu, and really easy.
Alternately, you can try InavX. It's $49.99 but the NOAA charts are all free from them.
Were it me, I'd go with door number 1, and see if you're okay with the screen size, etc.
