    I've found the Garmin app to be better than the Navionics. The charts are more readable.

    If you have Garmin GPSMAP, you can use the Garmin app to transfer waypoints and routes between devices.

    I really like the garmin app.
    Garmin also has an app that you can control your Garmin GPS from your apple product.

    I also have the Navionics on an android tablet.
    The android tablet has an internal GPS and is not connected to a cellular service.
    The tablet is as accurate and reliable as my dedicated marine GPS but I am not sure I would trust it as a stand alone without a dedicated marine GPS.

    This. I have it on an ipad and too wouldn't trust it as stand alone. In very heavy rain I've had it lose gps fairly often. Also not waterproof and the battery only lasts 4 hours if not plugged in.

    I have multiple iPad apps, and they all have their uses to me. I find the navionics is my go to app, mostly because I've used it the longest. The weather function on it is very handy.

    I wrote to navionics years ago complaining of their chart quality due to the way they stitched the source charts together. I found near my home port, there were discrepancies caused by this and presented in a potentially dangerous way. On area showed clear blue water in navionics but on my cmap plotter next to this, there was a white triangle cut out. I found out that this area was simply not charted and cmap shows it as such but navionics did not. I investigated the area and it was quite rocky, so good thing I had cmap running that day! Navionics has made great strides in this, at least in the areas I go, but that incident has left me always wanted to verify from multiple sources, usually just while planning.

    Garmin charts are very accurate here in the Great Lakes, and in the lock system, they are the only ones that show me in the water all the time :). My complaint with those was a lack of Bay names. They show the island or land names, but often I'm looking for the name of the bay and it wasn't there. Makes searching even harder, so I fell back to navionics, cmap, or raster.

    My old boat had Navnet 3 units with cmap, navionics and raster. I loved them for this. Always having one showing raster and the other cmap. Cmap on the navnet 3 was the least cluttered, and the raster was simply the most complete. Now I have Garmin. It's been a learning curve, some things I like and others I don't. It's taken a while to get the chart configured the way I want - still have the alarm that goes off in tight spaces which I can't figure how to disable.

    I use navionics now to review and plan a route, then use the autoroute in the plotter and adjust until I'm happy.

    The nobletec app has raster charts here and it's a good resource too.

    For using an iPad, you can use an external gps antenna. I have a bad elf, and it works great. It's only for backup, but still. I also use the bad elf for Geo tracking to test my photos.
