Re: Convert "wifi only" iPad to backup chartplotter?


as a back up I would assume that you don't need all the bells and whistles. Well, maybe one bell and a whistle or two. Consider the cost of all the added gadgetry, then consider an Android tablet and the free NOAA app or the Navionics app ($55). The tablet has the GPS built in. The apps are no/few frills but as a back up should do the trick. Either way, the Ipad or Andoid, tablets are hard to see in sunlight. Whatever you do, I wish you fair winds and a following sea.
