    Anyone use a tablet for navigation?

    Great info everyone thanks so much . Chowdaire that's exactly what I'm after . .. stoneam thanks for reporting your findings . I think i will start my search for a decent tablet with internal gps and give it a go . Surely it'll be cheaper then buying another unit just for more screens . LOL. I feel stupid complaining about switching screens or it's not big enough !! Technology spoils you !

    Anyone use a tablet for navigation?

    I also had navionics on my phone but wasn't sure if it worked because of my cell service, so not clear if a tablet would do the trick , so in theory as long as I purchase a tablet with an internal gps and download the offline maps I should be all set ?
  4. I don't want to keep flipping screens or splitting my screen this year , and seems kind of overkill to but another expensive unit . I have the lakemaps card for my humminbird and I love it . However I'd like to have something else so I can have one whole display of sonar and other of map/contours . Does anyone have any experience using any of the navigation apps on a tablet ? Was thinking a nice big tablet with a mount would do the trick . I wasn't sure how reliable or accurate this would be . Also would the tablet have to be on a active carrier to do the real time tracking ? Or Is this handled by some sort of internal gps device ? Thanks all for any insight

    Don't matter what boat , or water , be it canoe , bass or out on Ontario . Mines almost always with me . Although he is very trained and obedient! On hot days he will cuddle up on the floor of the cuddy where I have a fan going . Or he gets hit with the wash down . Make sure they have a way to drink ! . Mine wears a life jacket that has a pick up loop on the back and I tie him off to the boat with a 20' section of rope . So in the chance he ever found himself over I could reel him in . . Mines a great fishing companion , just hangs out and takes in the scenery . And he knows when action is happening to stay out of the way . Of course If your dog is hyper and won't listen I can see it being a miserable PITA

    Magna 30 drag

    I understand. Out of all the reels on the boat these two magnas serve as backup or don't feel like re-tying reels . Didn't know if there was a way to remedy it . i have cheap convectors and daiwas that work fantastic .

    Magna 30 drag

    Magna 30 drag I have a couple magna pro 30dx reels on rigger rods . I really dislike these reels . The drag is like an off switch.. its either too hard or to weak and seems like a tiny threshold between . Is there something I can do to remedy this ? Also is there any mod to make the clicker louder ?
  14. I'd like a hookup on just plain frozen herring , then could experiment. Where's them guys on the crab boats get them gigantic blocks of frozen herring ? Lol . Certainly they aren't paying $16 for 6 fillets !!
  15. Your right . with a north wind should be decent. Good luck and take lots of pics !
