Hi Everyone,

 

I have been looking at added a multifunction chartplotter to my tiki 46 but have come across iNavX for the Ipad. It seems that you can get a  DIGITAL YACHT IAIS WIRELESS AIS RECEIVER to multiplex all of the onboard nmea streams and to broadcast dual channel AIS direct to the ipad. iNavX uses Navionics charts.

I am thinking of going with raymarine instruments such as wind , depth / speed as the iNavX / Digital yacht wifi A.I.S accepts the seatalk interface and as i already have an ipad this setup seems fairly cost effective compared to a standalone chartplotter. Has anyone used this setup?

At some point i would also like to add an autopilot if the budget allows so any recommendations would be appreciated.

 

The electronic chart market seems quite mind boggling ( navionics, c-map, etc etc) so does anyone have any experience with the different brands, regarding scale,quality of the charts, usability what to avoid etc etc. Our current plan is to sail from cape town to st helena, then onto brasil then on up to Caribbean, so initially my interest is in the quality of charts for these area's.

 

Any info on real life use / reliability of the various manufacturers of marine instruments would be greatly appreciated.

 

Cheers

 

Marty

On the chart Satawal I. seems to be a difference in the horizontal date of GPS and chart.
