The iPad has now become a regular sight aboard – being used for communication, using lots of different apps and being used for navigation. SailCork have always been the groundbreakers when it comes to new courses and now we present the first course for using the iPad for navigation. Eddie English has been using Macs since 1992 and has been using Navionics Charts on his iPhone since they were launched in 2009.
95- 2 evenings
Length of Course
2 evenings via Zoom 19:30-21:45+ question time
Gain an understanding of using the iPad (or other tablet or smart phone) for navigation and be able to use the device to plan passages and aid navigation enroute.
This course will be run online using Zoom. You must have a personal account which is free to set up. A work or sports org account will not do.
What to bring
Bring your iPad (or other tablet or smart phone). SailCork recommends the version with Wireless and 3G, as it has an inbuilt GPS (the WiFi only model does not have a GPS). Purchase "Navionics Boating UK & Holland" from App Store or Google Play. You must have these downloaded in advance of the class.
Eddie has found the iPad indispensable for Passage Planning and excellent for navigation. Navionics were the first company to make charting available as an app for the iPad and have full charting for the world. Eddie will demonstrate using these charts and the latest software available.
