OK, so I want a handheld GPS
unit as a safety
backup. As usual, many models out there and little info to base a decision on. Boat has no chartplotter
(yet) but a Trimble fixed GPS
I like the looks/features of the Garmin
GPSMAP60C/CS and see that it takes the Blue Chart map software
. Another interesting unit is the Magellan
- it of course uses different software
On nauticalcharts.com I found this disclaimer.."Currently only 3 chart types are safe for navigation
: NOAA charts
, Waterproof Charts
Chartkits." So how does this apply to electronic charts such as the BlueChart and MapSend product?
Which handheld units does this group recommend?
Nice to have options, but this is a bit confusing!!
