      Hi Gus, I purchased the Navionics apps. I am on the west coast, so I purchased their US West app. I also just did a bare-boat charter in Turkey and purchased their Mediterranean app. Our Moorings 44 in Turkey had a nice chart plotter on board, but we all preferred the Navionics app on the iPad for our navigation. The iPad's touch interface really is perfect in this situation. It's so easy to just tap the screen to add a waypoint, then zoom out to refine the position. When I had the iPad up in the cockpit, I used a 1 gallon zip-lock bag for splash protection. I'm sure there are nicer alternatives. ;) I did find that it would overheat if left in direct sunlight for extended periods.

      Cheers,

      Kevin

      Hi Kevin, what marine apps do you use? I just got a boat, and I was thinking the iPad could complement the life aboard.
