Onboard Laptop

To chime in again.FWIW, Electronics fail, GPS''s lose satellite fixes, have redundancy of more than one GPS and chartplotter. If connected they are only as good as your battery power. We use more than one method and include alot of AA batteries on board for the handheld GPS and Chartplotter if there are any problems with the computer.The computer is our last backup system. Also good idea to know DR.

Onboard Laptop

Just purchased a 15" screen refurb laptop (Compaq) to run Nobeltec 7.0--it is over spec for the program but intend on using it to be an electronic ships log and quartermaster reports with MS-Works that came with it. Primary function is to interface with the Garmin 152. It can also play DVD''s. I resisted getting one--they remind me of work. My partnern as convince me that a laptop has a place on a sailboat.
