Odyssey works well if you have the right pc and processor. Otherwise, we prefer an Ipad
Air cellular with Nobeltec
app (3D photo
overlay) and INavx
app, and our Ipad
1 with internal GPS
The Ipad Air cellular name is misleading, it only means that it has an internal GPS and can operate off the cellular grid, so it doesn't need a continuous cellular signal to navigate.
, there are several ipad apps that work great. Navigation
via Ipads and the apps written for them has really moved ahead of what's available for pcs. Android tablets on the other hand have very few choices.
Maybe it's time to make the switch over to an ipad? I'm not a huge fan of Apple, but my Ipad air in it's Lifeproof case, bright screen
, floating lifejacket, music
in the background, 12 hour + battery
life... really can't be beat. Add in the 3D graphics, photo
overlay and $50 cost for the charts & the Nobeltec app was free... Oh yeah, I forgot to mention the ability to add photos and video taken via the ipad to the charts. Unreal.
Been using the original Ipad 1 for four years on the boat, it's never let us down... unlike the PC or semi permanent navigation gear
on the boat.
