  1. Hi Patrick: I also love my I-Phone. I also love the Navionics app for the phone. It is cheap and in my area have great detail. I wouldn’t use it as my primary chart plotter but when i am out in the kayak or dingy my I-Phone is in a ziploc bag and works great. The charts are actually stored on the phone so it works with its own GPS and you don’t have to be in cell phone range.

    • I have found that the phone needs to be on though, by that I mean airplane mode with wifi on does not enable the GPS. That us a problem when you don’t want to rack up any roaming charges.

  2. Turn off data roaming and gps should work but you won’t use any data. I do this when I travel to Japan.
