Actually, this whole thread is nonsensical, I have Navman, Garmin and Raymarine - they all have their merits. If you happen to have a Garmin fitted, of course you are going to say its the best etc etc (same applies to any manufacturer) you really are not going to admit to buying a load of crap now are you. There are the exceptions.
Well it managed to get me as far from you as posiible so it must be pretty good!!!

I have used the Garmin Bluecharts a lot more than the Navionics software and would say they are pretty much equal.

To be honest if I didn't have a RIB I would stick with the Garmin software on a laptop coupled up to a wireless GPS unit. Really does work very well but I am not taking my laptop on a RIB!!!

Charles, you used to be a valued and respected member here, but recently it seems that all you do is snipe from the sidelines. If you don't think that's true then I'd suggest that you use the advanced search to review your posts over the last few months . . .

Some while ago you wrote very passionately about people who were "arrogant and insulting" and "spend their time on the forum trying to upset and denigrate other members". Seems a bit ironic to me.

Codders, surprise, surprise - you aint ever heard of a "rugged" laptop??
Picked up one in Jan in the states for 1400$ - HP 3610/ Its the itronix gobook which sells at 4500$- and before being confind to bed- i put it in the rib and managed to submerge the rib. The hp got drowned and the driver nearly. Dried out , and the hp was as right as rain.

You being so well versed in IT... I am surprised you aint got one...By the way help me out , what do you mean by a wireless GPS?? 80211b???? or G??
or bluetooth- if you mean the one that works off the GSM or CDMA netwoks- its a fat lot of use if you are in the middle of the channel...

with my best regards and expecting a detailed reply...

Jonathan

I will stick to my guns and continue making a mockery of people who are 'armchair specialists', especially someone who has over 5000 posts; mainly regurgitated google searches and no actual experience. It is also very easy taking something completely out of context and applying it elsewhere John,you should know better! As far as your opinion re valued and respected member is concerned, I definitely won't lose any sleep over that.

If you disagree with something that is posted, then by all means argue your point. Just going on a mission to make a mockery of someone is not particularly constructive though. You say that I'm quoting you out of context, but to me there are obvious parallels!

Nor will I, but I definitely preferred the old Charles
