Re: New theft threat

Love my navionics on our iPads but all to often in the rain or after a day of taking spray the touch pad just doesn’t work. Have eye glass cleaner in a spray bottle. That and a very soft microfiber makes it work for awhile then need to do it again.
So as long as they make chart plotters with the redundancy of keys, joysticks and touch that’s the way we will go.
See the RM on the IPad as well and can run the autopilot from that or the small waterproof wireless RM remote. There’s still too much you give up without the chart plotters and various add ons. Don’t understand why a fully wireless network can’t be done. Hear even something as simple as a wind indicator can be unreliable.
