Garmin iPad App

This is pretty major news: Garmin is releasing an iPad and iPhone app for marine navigation.  The app will use their BlueChart vector charting product.  So if you have a Garmin plotter on your boat, you will have the same chart available in your iPad.  Apparently they are also going to allow users to transfer waypoints and routes through Wifi.  One of the other more interesting features is that they will include ActiveCaptain data in the app.  ActiveCaptain is crowd sourced data about points of interest to Mariners.  Individuals can write reviews of Marina's and hazards to navigation.
