I've got the "full" app, had it a couple of years & it keeps updating to the latest version. When it first came out, every so often it would be on special offer, I paid 4.99 for it I then downloaded the complete chartset for the UK & northern France, result I didn't realise it was now 40quid Still cheap when you think about it though.

Thanks for all the responses.

I quite fancy a project so I think I'm going to do this.

I've sourced a 7 amp hour Yuasa battery which should be sufficient.

I still have a few questions for all the experts in this field.

Firstly, what size fuses would be required or does it depend on the load?

The output from my OB looks as though there is a plug that should fit it? Ive attached a picture of the output.Click image for larger version

Using iPhone as a plotter

I've got mine on my iPad too, I mainly use it for passage planning, it also calculates the fuel I need for any particular journey. I don't bother taking the iPad on the RIB.

Unfortunately I coughed up 32 for the app, I never find a bargain.
