Cost of Chartplotter charts?

Hello all,

What are the costs of a set of say Navionics Gold charts for the world? Do they come with new plotters or do you buy them as you go?

Also.. Can these charts also be used on PC's / iPads?

I'm looking for the best solutions for a set of world charts, with updates, that I can use on my ray marine / simrad plotter, iPad, and Macbook Pro.

Has anyone got their acts together yet and released a combined set?

Re: Cost of Chartplotter charts?

Simon - Navionics does not offar a global set of charts. That being said with a newer chart plotter you can buy the Chart Plotter with out charts (saving money) and add Gold charts, they are updateable from the internet. One thing with updates is that you need a good internet access. So if you ae going to an area that is not going to have good internet update the charts before you leave for that area. The Navionics Gold charts can be used on a PC or Mac with the Fugawi PC programs. And yes Navionics does have charts for your iPad. If you want to see the charts before you purchase them you can go to the Navionics web site and click under products and then webb app. it is their veiwer.
