Thats awesome, but too much redundancy for me. I have two chart plotters each with a avionics platinum chip, and a garmin
handled with presided charts, and paper charts. I decided not to do the iPad iPhone thing.
But they are so much cheaper. Why is the app, which I believe is worldwide coverage for you iPad like $50, when a sing;e chip for a specific coverage area is in the hundreds?
As to the questions, I do believe you have to download a program to run it on your macbook, it wasn't designed for that. There is this iPad iPhone game
I play, and to get it to be played on the macbook there is a program people download. I think it is the same. I have heard reports of only mixed success. I wouldn't expect an app designed for iPad navigation
to work seamlessly on you computer.
