I use iNavX on my iPad and iPhone because it uses the NOAA raster charts. Also, I have a neat little GPS receiver module, a "Bad Elf" which makes these navigation programs work better.

I installed Charts and Tides, since is use the chart plotter for primary nav. It is fine for backup. Navionics is probably more nav feature rich, but C&T has the entire ActiveCaptain database downloaded to access offline. That is awesome!

Navionics chart prices vary by locale.

I'm looking for a good GRIB app that will keep the forecasts on my Ipad offline. Any suggestions?

I've seen iGrib for $2.99, PocketGrib for $5.99 and Weathertrack for $19.99. As users already know, you can't demo or really see an Ipad app without purchasing. That needs to change.

Unless I missed some fine print somewhere and charges show up onn my phone bill these charts are free and limited only by the storage on your iphone. I'm a 2 week old iphone virgin but so far I'm liking it.

2. Charts & Tides w/Active Captain support
3. Marine Chars EarthNC
4. eSeaChart U.S. Marine Charts w/Active Captain support - New
5. Boaters Pocket Reference
6. NOAA Buoy and Tide Data
7. AyeTides
8. Knot Guide
9. Animated Knoits by Grog
10. Nautical Chart Symbols
11. Nav Lights
12. Windfinder
13. Expert Video: Sailing
14. Sailboat Discussion Forum - SBO Sailboat Owners
15. and a few handy utilities to use on the go.
Yes I guess I am a bit over the top with apps but they are nice toys for the ipod and in future they will be mine to load onto an iPad 4G or something.

At Panbo.com there are some new weather sites:
Panbo: The Marine Electronics Weblog: iPad GRIB viewers, Weather4D & WeatherTrack

and waterproof cases:
Panbo: The Marine Electronics Weblog: iPad cases for the boat, & some interesting apps

I have been thinking seriously about buying a 3g iPad, does anybody have any real world experience with the coverage in coastal areas? ATT vs Verizon?

I understand the 3G has it's own GPS chip but how far out can you actually get data reception, say for weather radar downloads? I'm in the northeast.

I have had my IPAD2 out as far as 15 miles off the jersey coast and got great reception with AT&T. Course in the Chesapeake there is not trouble either at all. I am probably going to discointinue the AY&T though as my T Mobile Droid has a hot spot.
