What to do with an I-Pad?
I have a US Yacht 25 on the Columbia River. Wife has a 4 yr old IPAD in good condition, wants to donate to the boat.
I'm wondering what others would do. I'm kind of landlocked. Getting to know the river pretty well. A few shallow spots. Chinook is rewired completely. Has VHF,
a depth sounder, and mechanical windvane. No other electronics. No knotmeter.
Would this be a reasonable way to get gps or river chart setup? I'm kind of a minimalist anyway. Halfway through Andrew Evan's book (single handed sailing). Like his
philosophy regarding simplicity. I wouldn't need this. Don't want t spend hundreds or more on something I wouldn't use. However, if I could get a basic GPS, or boat speed,
or water depth without too much effort, that would be very nice. Or would it be better to have her get credit for a return to Apple, or donate to the women's shelter?
