I've been using RayTech for 6 years, on a PC at the nav. I have a Raymarine radar chartplotter
at the helm
. I consider the helm unit to be essential and RayTech a luxury. It's a complicated program, lots of functionality, poorly documented, a steep learnng curve, many peculiarites, at times very frustrating. If all you want it for is route
planning, uploading waypoints, and real time tracking underway, there are cheaper, simpler and better options. Its strength is radar integration, but unless you have the patience, you might be better off with a second radar station.
