GPS navigating

Hi all, I commercial fish here in BC, onboard I use a laptop connected to a Garminn stand alone GPS. using Nobeltec Oddyssey nav. program.

I am planning to go offshore in my sailing vessel and am curious as to what the thoughts and recommendations are for GPS world wide navigating. Tablets with downloaded charts, chartplotters, or similar to what I have on the fishboat
Much appreciate any words of wisdom and suggestions on wht to buy...tkzzz Peter
