Federal Publications is now carrying: It's now possible - and very worthwhile - to run real-time navigation with electronic charts - all in the palm of your hand.

Use a Pocket PC computer (such as a Compaq iPAQ), along with Fugawi Global Navigator GPS software for Pocket PCs, to carry your electronic nautical charts with you wherever you go.
Nautical Charts on a Pocket PC

Electronic charts have many fans in the boating community - but many people are reluctant to take a laptop computer on board their boats. Finally, there's a amazing solution - the Pocket PC.

These handheld units operate in a Windows environment and many come pre-packaged with pocket versions of Outlook, Word and Excel. Using a Pocket PC with a 65,536-colour display is easy on the eyes - you won't believe the clarity of the charts on the screen. Connect a GPS receiver, and you'll see your position right on the screen. It's the most portable solution for taking charts along with you.

And now, carry your Pocket PC in a specially-designed waterproof case - no need to worry about damaging your equipment while on board.
