Re: Free or low cost GPS navigation software?

I purchased electronic Garmin charts for $50 and downloaded on my IPad. works GREAT! Excellent detail/accuracy and the "active captain" feature that has all kinds of information. Of course good to maintain vigilence on depth sounder.

I have Polar Navy too and love it. BUUUUUTTTTTTTTTTTT, I have a problem I can't download and purchase other charts, like the charts for Central America or other places outside U.S. It seems that we need to have two separate registrations from Polar navy and the charting company. Somehow, I got really lost between them. Well... that was a couple months ago, it is still not werking
