If that's what you want, yes. But the Garmin

, or the topos. It won't run my Nobeltec
However, I do LOVE my Garmins. All 4 of them.
But I want a PC system, too. AND my paper charts
and bearing compass
So, YOU might be "done with it
" with only a garmin, but not me.
EDIT: Matt beat me to it, but I'll leave my post, as well. AND. I'll add, that I would not feel comfortable with only a PC. I like at least 2 standalone plotters. One mounted and one battery
. THEN, I am ready for a PC.
