On the French forums
, nobody asks questions about the bsb4 plug-in. Nobody said: "It's Ok." Nobody said: "It will not." Nobody said: "I'll try."
Those who had bsb4 also had another charting software
And the other sailors?
Since the release of IPAD
, last year, it is possible to buy a charting software
, but less efficient qu'OpenCPN which costs only 30 euros and a porfolio of bsb4 cart is also sold 30 euros which covers a large sea area.
for the same card portfolio, which covers the same area for OpenCPN be used on PCs with Windows, is 150 euros or more .... !
I suspect that most sailors interressés are pending. ... What?
First, in my opinion, a lot of sailors waiting for the PC cards for use with Windows or Linux are less expensive. It may also be waiting to see if it works well.
Secondly, another problem occurred with the success of the iPad-1 and Ipad_2. These tablets are convenient, with their touch screen, and because they are easy to get on the decks of boats.
Other manufacturers have released tablet PCs and several thead forums
leads me to believe that many sailors do not want to invest in equipment
and charts probably will not until he saw what equipment
and what operating system will prevail.
The existence of the Android system is an issue in this case.
I hope that it will not delay too much the development of plug-in bsb4.
