Just recently we completed a 3 week 400km, (250 miles) BC west coast
Gulf Island sailing trip during wonderful weather
and fair winds. Longest leg was 27nm from Clam Bay via Portier Pass to Mc. Donald Beach located approx. 5 km up the North arm of the Fraser River.
We used Navionics charts
, US and Canada
, in combination with a Bad Elf GPS
and an I Pod Touch for navigation
in addition to paper charts
and a Garmin
. The system worked well but... the IPod Touch is screen
is too small to see clearly.
We're considering purchasing
the larger IPad
Touch for our next trip. Any suggestions, pro's or cons regarding the IPad
Touch?... much appreciated
