iPad replaced the PC that worked with the pacor modem.

That sounds very interesting. May I ask you how do you connect the iPad to the pactor modem? USB? Is there an additional hardware component? What software are you using?

I found two Navionics apps; one for 9.99 and one for 14.99. I took a quick look and I could not determine the difference. Also. I need the inland lakes information and I am not sure they are in the app. I am using a Verizon Droid phone.

It seems you've misunderstood. The reason I asked was because I can no longer connect to the pacor. The iPad has replaced the old tablet PC. The convoluted process of having another PC aboard, then transferring via iTunes seems archaic. In the age of having apps that do everything from charting, to anchor alerts, I'm surprised there isn't one that allows a direct connect.

I was hoping you'd come up with some news.

You are right. Unfortunately there is no connection possible between the pactor and the iPad. - I might put the development of such software on my to do-list though.

AyeTides is great it displays tides and currents for locations around the world. It's a stand-alone app and does not require internet access to function. A good way to plan ahead.

If you consider music to be a part of sailing (I actually don't like it underway, but do once anchored or docked), I just began using Pandora Radio. You type in whatever genre, artist, or other phrase that describes the type of music you are interested in and it just starts streaming for free. Very very cool. I have no patience for downloading iTunes or sorting CDs, etc. I also have a wide interest in music, so my preference at any particular time can be very different from another.

I already have the cable that connected our iPod to the boat's stereo system, which will work the same for the iPad. I suspect one would only want to use this when connected to wifi. I believe that streaming music can chew up a lot of cell bandwidth.

I had an older Navionics app that was great. I broke the phone and when I went to re-load the app software, my previous app was no longer available. I downloaded the next available app and I'm not as happy with it. The previous app had all the the U.S. This later app has U.S. and Canada, but you physically select the area you want to have, then you download it. That wasn't a big deal. But one time I went to open it up and the app gave me an error message that it couldn't validate my license. Well, it couldn't validate it because I didn't have 3-G coverage where I was. Crap, is the thing even going to work when we're far from cell phone service? The old version did. I'm not so sure about the newer version.
