Route Planning Software and/or Suggested Itineraries

I need to plan a route from Portsmouth, RI to Deltaville, VA for next fall. I'm looking for PC or Mac-compatible software to plan the route. I would also welcome any itinerary suggestions. I'll be aboard an Oceanis 41 with my wife and our dog; so, I'm looking for a comfortable route rather than a quick one. Appreciate any advice you have to offer.

Re: Route Planning Software and/or Suggested Itineraries

Raymarine has just released their "Raymarine R17 Software" which allows for autorouting from within the Raymarine chartplotter using the Navionics chip. I just got the email today from Raymarine about this. Here is a video with a really good explanation of it:

In fact, it apparently comes with not just the AutoRouting feature but SonarChart Live feature (described here: where you can update your charts in real time based on the data your transducer is collecting.

And it also includes Advanced Map Options which allows you to customize your view of the Navionics chart by highlighting shallow areas, adjusting SonarChart contour density and a bunch of other things.

The link in the email I got goes here for all that info in one place: Raymarine software update delivers Navionics advanced features | Navionics

You can also do all of this from the Navionics app on your iphone, ipad, android phone or tablet, fyi. So if you want to do it from your couch, that's the option for ya.
