Electronic charts & SSB weather

M:

I notice we''re in the Living Aboard area when all this stuff is more relevant to the Cruising or Gear & Equipment venues...but we''ll press on, regardless. <g>

I think the Yeoman product is a practical, functional way to give paper charts a GPS kind of accuracy & utility. But then, we started without electronic navigation and so used only paper...which meant the Yeoman was in use every day and we became big fans. Now that we rely on electronic nav, we almost never use it. Still...many an active cruiser who covers lots of ground ties up a LOT of money (many thousands, I''d guess) in paper charts plus electronic hardware and chart media. Is it so far fetched to spend some hundreds of dollars to offer the ship and her crew an option that''s inbetween 17th century hand plotting on paper and 21st century electronic systems? I rarely see a boat with more than one way to do chart plotting (the exception is if they are using a PC, in which case they sometimes will have a back-up PC) so, if the chart plotting hardware goes south, folks are back to parallel rulers and lat/long plotting. Ugh...
