Please post more on how the project goes! Will you be plagued by the Blue Screen Of Death? Will we see a ribster mid-channel shaking his fist and shouting "B****y Bill Gates, come here and fix this" Or the RNLI called out for a reboot But seriously, it will be interesting to see how you get on. Best of luck with it.

Charles, sorry to go off subject of your original thread... however, a tiny snippet of information for you - the Garmin plotter you're considering was reviewed in one of the sailing mags back in Feb. It wasn't a very "in-depth" review (more a case of them reading the blurb on the box) but they seemed to rate it. If you didn't see it, I can dig it out for you and run it over the copier.
