Put your smart phone in a Lifeproof case, install the Navionics app and away you go.

As an emergency unit? Many are starting to use the navionics app, or some other app, for GPS if their main system goes out.

Lowrance H2OC has GPS and uses navionics charts. I have one that I don't use anymore. PM me if interested.

I got 4 of the 76's, they are becoming antiquated now. I been leaning toward a garmin 62sc, I wish they offered a larger screen in handhelds

Its hard to beat the Navionics app in an iPad, iPhone, android or tablet same great mapping as in the map cards and it does way more than most handhelds
