Clarity, with all the misstatements?

I plan to post one more correction, in the event others read the thread and are misled.

While I highly suggest the 3G model to get the internal GPS receiver, the "puck" add-on for an Ipad has NO wire. One version plugs directly into and become attached to the Ipad. The other is bluetooth (ie WIRELESS) and would fit in your front pocket in less space than my keys.

Just stick with your PC. You understand them.
PC charting programs are much better anyway because the mouse lets you scroll and zoom quickly. IPad doesn't. MarkseaofLife
Take you PC in the cockpit when its rolling and the weather is bad. or to lunch at a table in the Cafe.

Let me know how that works out for you

Both have uses that work in different conditions

A good app call boat beacon shows Ais information and you can even send a signal to show your position. The new series of MFD from Raymarine will integrate with i phone and i pad saving £££.

Actually, I have some padeyes placed to secure the Toughbook right under the dodger. It works out pretty well and is not sticking way up above the pedestal, ready to snag lines as some nav clusters seem to be. Many of the pedestal-mounted GPS units do look very nice but most are above my budget for new stuff. Having a big hi-res touchscreen right there in front of you has got to be nice if it can be mounted in such a way as to not get in the way when it gets rough and rolling.

Re: Best iPhone and iPad apps for sailing

iNavx (awesome), Navionics, AyeTide (no wifi needed), Hurricane (must have), Hurricane Tracker (must have), Weather Channel, Passagemaker, Windbouy, Surf Report, Real Wind, and BoatRef (must have). Just downloaded Sea State but haven’t tried it yet.

For cruising; DropBox, Evernote, Things (To Do), and DAN (7/24 med advice and Emergency Evac from anywhere), are a big plus. Having copies import documents (USCG Doc, current boat visa, boat insurance, health insurance, health records, etc in the cloud is critical and efficient).

Re: Best iPhone and iPad apps for sailing

Definitively:

Navionics for charts, trackaship for 'ais', and Anchor! for mooring.
