Hello everyone, we have a steel
sailboat and are interested in having a tablet with navionics
app to use as a back up chartplotter
We already have a Raymarine chartplotter
, and Furuno
, but since we are hoping to do some serious cruising are interested in getting a tablet for the convenience of carrying it onshore for wifi
, and might as well put the navionics
app on it. My question is, does anyone know of a GPS
receiver (like the puck) which is waterproof, and can be installed permanently outside with a usb plug
to hook it directly to an android tablet.
I assume the GPS
+ Glonass (inside the tablet I want) will work
fine when I am outside, but since we have a steel boat
it probably won't get a fix inside. Basically, if I use it inside it will sit on the nav station, so a USB-corded receiver would be nice...sit it down and plug
Am I on the right track here, and can anyone provide me with a product suggestion...I have looked online but didn't find a outside GPS receiver compatible with android.
Thanks in advance.
