It's not so much that it's a trivial matter. It's that it is sooo nice there that spending a moment on a laptop
for anything is a waste o'time.
Perhaps you don't have a boat at home and haven't had time to practice, but doing so while there can take away from the fun. Like: reading at anchor
, sipping sundowners, having coffee on deck
int he morning, snorkeling, sailing, navigating by eyeball (which is sometimes more important to know than playing "video-game" navigation), dinghying round, going out to eat, eating on board, going to a resort's pool, shopping
We've been there a half a dozen times, and still bring the 1986 PAPER
chart we got the very first time we were there. It (the chart) still works and has all of our courses, plus our own log book. If I wanted to "share" I'd take a picture of the chart and email
it to friends. Never seemed to need to do that.
Go and have fun, however you choose to do so, but I'd get my head
OUT of the boat, first. I'd rather eyeball things than have my head stuck in a computer for a trip like that.
Have a great trip.

Island Beach Club. And get TWO T-shirts, they eventually wear out and you'll miss it when you get home. Still have mine, but can't wear so often or it will wear out.
