Chart plotter

Hi all. I am looking to get a chart plotter for my honwave sib for this coming season but finances are tight so am looking at used. Any recommendations or anyone got any going cheap. It doesn't need to be all singing and dancing but would like it to have maps for south west wales if poss. And also not to big as it is going on a sib. Thanks in advance.

I'm sure you can buy a battery powered garmin Nuvi and load a chart onto it, I have a nuvi 310 and I'm sure you can do it on that.

I did do a post years ago on this somewhere...

Good luck

Just found my post...

Question: Will BlueCharts and Inland Lakes work on my nüvi?

Answer:

The BlueChart and Inland Lakes SD cards and DVD software will work in the nüvi. However, they may work with limited capability. This means that the unit may be able to draw all the map features from the BlueChart or Inland Lake software, such as lakes, nav-aids, depth contours, wrecks, etc., but the interactive capability of the maps may be limited. For example, you may not be able to “find nearest marinas” or look up additional text about a specific mapping feature.

First, you will need to deselect the preloaded mapping on the unit to properly see this information:

1. Touch the wrench icon

2. Touch Settings

3. Touch Map

4. Touch Map Info

5. Ensure that the is a checkmark next to the Lakes software and no checkmark next to City Navigator

Next, select the off-road method of navigation:

1. Touch the wrench icon

2. Touch Settings

3. Touch Navigation

4. Touch Route Preference

5. Select 'Off Road' and choose OK

Finally, you will need to make sure you set your Map View to North Up or Track Up. You can do this by following the instructions below:

1. Touch the wrench icon

2. Touch Settings*

3. Touch Map

4. Touch Map View

5. Select either North or Track up

6. Touch OK

*Note: This step isn't necessary on all nüvi units

Thanks whisper. Is that unit waterproof? And how much would the charts be.

In a few days I'll have a Raymarine 435i available, I'm sure we can come to some arrangement. Just waiting for Biffer to work his magic and fit my upgrade! Not sure which charts are installed as it was on my RIB when I bought it but it has UK charts for definite.
