Comparing several popular Android apps for boat navigation

How is it that you didn’t try Open CPN?
I have a laptop that charges on my boat’s house battery and uses a GPS “dongle”.
Big Thumbs Up Alan ! You last comments are so important I wish you had put them up front, because people need to KNOW that all this stuff will die, just when you need it most. And there you are.. either happily following along on your paper chart, or going ape shit. I would have slavishly gotten Navionics without considering the others. Any touch screen ( rather than dedicated buttons) device is a pain and in a lurching boat.. times 10.So that needs to be said. I have a tablet, so I will have an app. But I would rather have an 8 year old gps with dedicated buttons.. for $100 than an expensive new thing when money is tight.
Is your tablet 120 vac? Do you use it while sailing?
