Navigation Winner

I've been sailing internationally for years and finally found a navigational dream come true! I so wish I would have found this when I was struggling with endless chart books and (rolled) paper charts. I actually found the link here at the cruisers forum, thanks a million! I bought the flashdrive/gps combo with (to start with) all US and Mexican charts. I just plugged it into my onboard laptop and I was up and running there and then. Not bad for a girl like me. So easy. Every boat needs this. I don't want to sound too preachy, but this is so amazing. There's a really nice (sailor) guy named Rob at cruisingservices.net. Fair Winds...

If only Canada charts were as free as the NOAA charts. The trip I want to do next year will cost $500 for the electronic charts!

Re: Navigation Winner

I have an Macbook and iPad so I guess it will not help me.
