Indestructible case for otherwise destructible iPhone

02/07/2010

iPhone gets more and more credit as best sailing gadget ever. There are few big issues

  • iPhone is slippery
  • iPhone is fragile
  • iPhone has mediocre battery life
  • iPhone GPS is not very accurate

All these issues are solved by ToughCase for iPhone by Magellan. This is not another protective case for iPhone. It contains:

  1. IPX7 waterproof casing
  2. SiRF Star III GPS receiver
  3. 1840mAh battery

So, it converts fragile iPhone to sailing-proof platform with much better GPS. Oh, and it’s also compatible with iTouch music playes.


iPhone – one of the best sailing gadgets ever

10/08/2009

iPhone and Apple divide world into two separate groups, ones who love and others who don’t. I’m personally in the second group. But still, have to admit, that iPhone is one of the best sailing gadgets ever. That’s Why:

iNavX

1. iNavX navigation program, created by the same people who wrote GPSNavX. Compatible with NOAA RNC raster charts, CHS Canada Charts, Navionics Gold Charts, Discovery Charts, HotMaps, NV. Verlag Charts, TRAK Canada lakes fishing maps and Solteknik Sweden waters charts, purchased separately.

This blog is all about gadgets, used on the boat. New navigation tools, video equipment, communication, GPS etc. I’m not a pro sailer. I started sailing just 2 years ago, but I participate now different offshore races on our ORC Grand Soleil 42R, fast and beautiful yacht. Many skippers and sailors are concentrating on sailing only. I try to find how technology can make it better, more interesting and safer. And staying in reasonable budget. Enjoy!
