Navionics, Bad Elf and IPod Touch

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 72 GPS. 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
