Would like some info from the technology competent sailors here?
My technology understanding isn’t up to the best standard.
Some of the questions I tried to get answers from the chat on Navionics
but they were answering in circles never answering what I ask.
1. Planning to get a dedicated android tablet for my Navionics
, know it must have internal GPS
for position on the big blue ocean, so my understanding is if it has GLONASS, BDS or GAILILEO then it will be able to get position in middle of nowhere.
2. I know you must download the charts
for the area you planning to sail for when you offline, tried to find out how much space is needed for storing the charts
, sometimes when cruising no places or proper internet
to download new charts. Is it possible to download the charts and then store it on external drive or computer and load it again on tabled as you proceed with your voyage?
3. I would also like to receive AIS
on tablet. Saw that you can buy AIS
Transceivers with Wi-Fi, do you only need this transceiver with the Wi-Fi it gets the AIS targets on Tablet chart screen
. So basically only need the AIS Wi-Fi Transceiver and my Tablet.
Thanks for your assistance.
