GPS Waypoint and Route Managers

Most yachts carry more than one GPS.  Most sailors like to load the same route into all of those GPS units.  Many sailors also use computers that are ideally suited to managing numbers in easy-to-read tables.  GPS Waypoint/Route Management software uses computer power to back up and share waypoint information between GPS units.  Commercial packages support sophisticated ocean routing, too.
