Update on phone and apps.
New phone arrived yesterday, huge screen, really bright, just what I need with my duff eyes!
Apps so far,
( Navionics uk holland,) I cant believe how good this is for under 20 quid, Ive overlaid google earth on it, its amazing everything is clickable, brings up a new screen with all the details you could possibly want, has tide tables, graphs, and flows as well, also wind arrows. So although your viewing on a wee phone, the fact that everything is clickable makes it a doddle, oh, and also tracks, waypoints and routes. Having said all that, will no doubt eat battery and data time if on all the time.
(Marine weather by bluefin,) great, Inshore weather and tides etc. free.
(Marine traffic), ais system, great free.
(Google sky map) free I like stars!.
Ive a funny feeling this is just the start as the app shop is bulging with toys.
Thanks for the ideas, Gerry.
