The strengths are very cheap maps (and cheap hardware) and the fact that its self contained with its own GPS and long battery life.

It is a lot to offer in a package that is also allows you to connect to Internet, sent emails make skype calls read books and magazines.
Also, navionics downloads Grib files & tidal data now to give you access to wind & tide. As well as the ability of adding your own notes & alterations. You can take photos & videos to add to locations also.

It also has the ability to sync your data across your multiple devices (iPhone, iPad).

Re: New Program for Navionics on the iPad

Will the new one time upgrade to "Nav Module $4.99" allow you to e-mail your routes.gpx file to and from your iPad?

I just had a look on my iPhone. You can recover a route from Menu/Archive then Share it via email, Facebook or Twitter. It is a .kmz

I emailed it to myself & the .kmz file opened the route in Google Earth. Very clever!!

I will need to investigate this more later.

Re: New Program for Navionics on the iPad

iNax and Memory Map Pocket Navigator allow you to e-mail yourself a .gpx file with all your route and bring them in.

Garmin Blue charts said they may do it as an upgrade.

Navionics Nav Module upgrade doe not look like it will do it either.
