Small Boat /Low Cost nav system
As many of you know we have 2 Eee PCs
(US $399.00) that we bought for use aboard Guenevere. They are the old (computer speak) ones that have the 7 inch screen
so they use very little power. They are running Windows XP so I can run our Airmail (FREE) com program with our HAM and SSB radio
I downloaded a copy of SeaClear II ( SeaClear GPS Navigation Software
) and got it up and running. A very good (FREE) program!
I just got a new USB connected GPS puck
for US $24.00 + 7.00 shipping
, (It's now down to US $19.99 at ( USB 44-Channel GPS Receiver w/USA Maps GT-3731
). Loaded the drivers from the CD and it's up and running in both Airmail for auto updating our position AND SeaClearII!
I don't think you can do any nav system for less.
