As reported by Active Captain, Garmin has made a significant stride in maritime navigation recently by offering their blue chart capability set in a new iOS app called Bluechart Mobile. I purchased the app with the east coast charts and I think it’s fantastic. Here’s the video from Garmin.
I’ll freely admit, I’m an unabashed Garmin fan. I’ve used their products for years, both on, and off, and in the water. I say ‘in’ because I use a Garmin 910XT for triathlon training and racing. It’s an amazing, data and feature rich device.
