Electronic Navigation introduces GPS technology from the most basic receiver to chart plotter systems for navigation on board. Despite differences among the various manufacturers’ offerings, a thorough discussion of various features is included.Students should be familiar with basic charting concepts such as latitude, longitude, the compass, course plotting, and time/distance calculation, to get the most out of the course.

Topics include:

  • Navigating by establishing waypoints and routes
  • Running the planned courses
  • Examining electronic charting software for the desktop computer
  • Creating waypoints and routes on the desktop
  • Downloading to the onboard unit.

Special attention is paid to apps for tablets and smartphones that provide the electronic navigation function at the helm, for relatively little cost.
