Cheers guys.
The second one you posted a link to P.D looks the very ticket - providing it is compatible?.
I'll probably wait till after Xmas to get the GPS as I doubt I'll be going too far in the SIB till the spring next year.
Got some more DIY alterations and upgrades to get done over winter as well as a ton of Home Improvements - depressing!

But do you not have a wee chartplotter at all? (if so you probably just need a cable) - if you don't then 2nd hand ones seem to be about the same cost as those links PD posted and would give you a useful display etc too...

Poly I was hoping the same - 30 ish quid.
My plotter is just a Hudl tablet in a waterproof case running Marine Maps MX Mariner.
Don't think I can take a GPS from the tablet??
I have had a look on ebay to no avail.
I'll start a separate thread to see if anyone knows of a little cheap and effective solution.
