As I don't go out to sea very often and usually just explore lochs a plotter seems a lot of money to tie up,anyone tried Navionics app on either IPad or Samsung tablet?

Yep and works fine if you have ipad with 3g (wifi only version has no gps chip)
I use Isailor and i use the Waterproof case on both my motorbike and boat.

+1 for the Dragonfly. I have the combination plotter / sonar fitted with the Navionics gold card, it is a very good package, The plotter is extremely accurate.
I believe Navionics now have a transducer that will work wirelessly with an i pad etc?

GNS 2000 Bluetooth Receiver

iv got this,,

connects to the ipad via bluetooth. has a 10 hour battery life and for 40 iv got the gold navionics and sonar charts on the ipad and works perfect for what i need on my cruiser and as a backup. with the blueooth gps its actually more accurate than the gps built into the phones/ipads and thats why pilots used these even on their phones/cellular ipads

for my rib i will be getting a chartplotter but on the other boat its not needed/justified
