Hi Harry --

Not sure about MacENC, but there's a good long thread running on the Ipad here:
The Marine iPad . . .

Also use the site search feature to look for other threads including Ipad references. There's also an Android tablet thread here somewhere. . . .

NOT yet. MacENC is buggy.

iNavX app is reasonably priced, plus so many apps that are applicable: inclinometer, weather, ais, grib........

Re: iPAD for Navigation at Sea

You can use MacENC on your Mac and iNavX on your iPad/iPhone. Both work with the Navionics Gold charts from X-Traverse. Both can operate independently or can be linked wirelessly. We respond to emails, so feel free to send us more questions.

I love my MacENC! I can't wait to try iNavX when I get my iPad. Tech support always answers my emails right away, usually instantly. They also post here regularly.
