The following two have not been mentioned in the discussion yet:
  • qtvlm: Software is free. Charts need to be purchased/ provided. Support for S-63 charts can be purchased for a fee.
  • i-Boating : Software is free. Charts are free during the trial period. Supports USB, Bluetooth, COM/Serial and TCP/IP interfaces for both GPS and AIS. Charts include HD coverage for inland lakes and rivers.
