Re: Chart Plotters
I have a Garmin 42dv. The main thing that sold me on the Garmin was the ease and layout of the menu system. Trying the different ones out in the store (Lowrance, etc), the Garmin was easy to figure out without a manual - it just made logical sense how to operate it, get to different screens, menus, etc.
That being said, I just did a 2700nm delivery on a boat setup with a Vesper wifi AIS routed into Ipads running InavX, and was very impressed with the operation of the system. Much more versatile than a standalone plotter. If I were to do it again, I would definitely go that route. And now with the newer wifi radar systems, those could also be integrated as well.
