Hi all, I am new to the openseamap forum & apologise if this is dealt with before, I am sailing from UK to Turkey this summer and am trying to work out the best/ cheapest way of using the electronic charts available. I have an 8 year old Garmin map plotter but it would cost a fortune to buy all the data cards to cover from UK to Turkey. I'm willing to buy an ipad & use opensea charts if they have enough detail, what will the ipad do, does it show gps co ordinates/position, can you plot a course with waypoints etc. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Hi, just have a look at the website for the OpenSeaMap app there you can see a lot of screenshots and get a feature description. Also a visit to the AppStore site is helpful because it has a description of the app.

If you have further questions just ask me, I am the developer of this app.
