Question What nav. program?

I'm gonna make a poll on what electronic navigation chart system people use, but I need to know some program names.

I use MaxSea and I know about Captn. Jack, MapTech, Chersoft, The Capn, NaviGator, Nobeltec, EasyNav, Visual Nav, Chart View, Offshore Navigator, Visual Mariner, Chart View, RayTech

Any others?

Don't forget the most reliable manual system with paper charts.
I was glad that my skeptic wife plotted positions and tracks manually when a wet storm trashed my laptop. Gps's are also known to fail at the most inconvenient time. They can also accidently float away when least expected.

Paper charts

I agree with you. Sextant and paper charts don't need a power source either.

After using Capn on other boats, I was set to buy it for our new C&C 43. I went to NavTech to view but was more impressed with Chart Navigator Pro. I called Landfall and for my $4-500 budget that's what they recommended also. Pretty impressive capabilities, comes with all US charts, and is on sale for $400. I just ordered it.

Charts

I use Maptech's Chart Books, the one's that come with a CD, and run all on my laptop, which also have a BU 353 GPS attached, great setup, gives you digital and paper chart back-up.
