So I've acquired a Northstar 958 for real cheap
. It's like new and it's pretty darn fast and yes it's old. The saddest part is right now I don't have a map available for the upper Mississippi
River which I need for the next year or so.
The question is do I keep trying to find an outdated map of the river or do I dump this plotter and look for something newer? If I do go with something newer what would be my best bet in the $500 dollar range +-
I need to integrate an AP, depth
, speed and wind
instruments (NEMA 0183)
And yes I doubt anyone here would have a chart of the upper Mississippi
And no I really don't want to spend the time to reverse engineer
the chart format.
Or alternately can I just use it as a display but do the actual charting on another unit and send the signal to this plotter?
Puzzled on the hard
