Plotters, MFDs & Radar
Practical Sailor explores the not-so-simple universe of secure digital media cards.
As we dug into the topic of electronic storage mediathe memory cards we use for routine software updates on our marine electronicswe found that even the makers of our marine electronics were a little confused about which memory cards worked with their own systems. We soon realized that a data table indicating which cards worked with which electronics would be very handy. It was one of those easier-said-than-done enterprises that dragged on for weeks. Hopefully, our tables, compiled by PSs resident electronics expert, Bill Bishop, will be helpful as you dust off your chartplotter for the coming season.
