The navionics app comes with the vectorize enc maps. The app features itself is rather basic but still very good. INavX is a more full featured app, but it only comes with the raster image maps. If you want to use vectorized maps, then you have to pay extra.
For the few dollars, start with the Navionics app. If you want more features, like instrument, plotter, computer integration, then go with iNavX. Both apps are rather inexpensive (compared to everything else yachting).
I recently purchased an app called "AnchorWatch". Check it out too.

Just got an iPad2, want to rig it as a GPS backup. Running into the same questions.
Explain this please:

I think iNavX is a great app, and I may get it down the road, but I will likely get MacENC first. I currently also use GPSNavX on a cheap little laptop in my navstation, and I have been very pleased with it. So for now, the combo is great (though I hardly look at the laptop now).

Resurrection! I'm looking at this application (instead of the Navionics HD that everyone else was talking about): iNavX™ - Marine Navigation App for iPhone and iPad
Is there a specific reason you've selected Navionics HD over iNavX?

That said, I just used the iPad on a 70 NM round trip on the Gulf ICW. It worked wonderfully. But on another note, the tide info from navionics HD does not agree with NOAA tide prediction (or most other tide tools). I reported the bug, and navionics said they are already working on an update.
But I do have to agree, I would drown before giving up my iPad....

There were mounts o
n the ram site last time I looked (although no prices), but to be clear, I don't mean to mount my iPad at the helm. I don't mean to expose it to the elements. But for planning, email, surfing, and the like, it is great!

|poopdeckpappy||I looking to do this also, I'm sure Ram mounts will have a mount for it soon if not already|

|SVlagniappe||There's no setup to it. It's just an ipad. Not connected to anything. The battery life is pretty amaing...|
