Re: Practical Navigation Solution for Small Boats: Navionics and iPad?

The compass is a must. Most of my life has been dedicated to racing sailboats so that is a no brainer. Carrying a chart is an option, however, a bit tough in a kayak. On our rocky shoreline, it is the shoreline that can kill you. I like the idea of a back up, hand-held GPS. While the iphone is a backup, the batteries drain far too quickly for it to be a reliable solution. Thanks for the input.
