now allows you to view and control your chartplotter
from your ipad
over wi-fi..no additional hardware
or cost required.
Its simply a screen
sharing tool, like remote desktop
for a PC, but its great! I can now mount an ipad
over nav station and/or the pilot birth and not spend even more cash on a second plotter.
Also, the new version of Garmin
homeport has some great new features including full integration with your chartplotters. Maps can be shared between devices... you stick a memory card into my plotter, copy the map onto the card and then stick the card into your mac. Homeport immediately picks it up and imports the chart.
I can then upload my plotted route
to the chartplotter
, and use the resulting laylines to figure out my tack and gybes. Awesome!
