Couple ?s on android G3 tablet used as a boats GPS and chartplotter



Couple ?s on android G3 tablet used as a boats GPS and chartplotter

Which mapping/chartplotting SW to down load? mainly near Florida.would like to be able to navigate even w/out internet service.
I read a little about the navionics and a few others curious pros and cons on someone just starting out (I'd kindof like to keep it simple)

I'm starting w/ one andriod6 10" display, (hopefully it's builtin GPS ant. is stronge enough to penirate my hardtop.

will expand w/ 2nd for radar

how hard is it to interface a radar antenna to a tablet? I attach RDs wires.
