What does Navionics have to do with a fish finder? Would you mind using punctuation in your sentences? Btw a question usually ends with a question mark.

Thank you for the punctuation!

I use Navionics on my smartphone with a 3.7" screen and I think it's a great tool and should most likely fit your needs. It's also a bargain, I paid 10€ for the whole of Scandinavia, you can't really go wrong with that pricing.

When you install and run the app for the first time it downloads the whole map (500 MB in my case) so I recommend to do that with wifi. After that you don't need a connection to use the app.

Yeah the price is pretty awesome. Hopefully it's similarly priced in Europe.

are the apps as developped as on a mac platform ? i dont have an ipad yet, pads will be part of my navigation system if only satellite internet would be at par with on land internet.
I use skitrack on my iphone, and garmin stuff. One of the greatest potential is security on and away from the boats.
