Computer Navigation Systems

Computer charting and navigation systems are exciting innovations for boaters. With detailed, color charts and capable software to display and manage them, boaters can now bring the highest quality navigation information on board. And, with more powerful, less expensive computers, boaters now can own a navigation system that costs less than a single-function chart plotter and handles an array of functions from weather forecasting to communications.
