We used an iPad, iNavX and BadElf GPS
exclusively last year from Nova Scotia
and back. BadElf GPS
was velcroed to companion way and had RAM mounts at chart table and under bimini
. CableJive 12v extension cables
had 12v, BadElf and iPad powered at all times in both locations. Noaa charts were used in US and Navionics in Bahamas
- Note: the Bahamas Navionics charts are not to be relied upon except for general navigation
in non-critical areas! We found huge discrepencies between Navionics data and Explorer Charts - Explorer charts were far superior.
Next time we would look at a good waterproof case for iPad and would try Bad Elf Pro.
