Chartplotter on a budget

Ahoy, Captain!

We offer a great selection of chart plotter sizes, at very affordable prices. They are turn-key units based on a refurbished marine grade Panasonic Toughbook navigation laptop or an Android navigation tablet. There are many upgrades and options such as AIS, NMEA adapters, radar, autopilot, various chart options, and much more. Wherever you’re headed, I got you covered. Around 65% of my clients are commercial fishermen. The rest are leisure cruisers, tugboat and delivery captains, sailors, and others. Dealing with our small business offers many advantages over competing solutions. Please contact me at +1 (604) 700-3208 with any questions, and I’ll take care of the rest!

Affordable chart plotter: navigation laptop or tablet

I offer a wide range of units with sizes ranging from 8 to 15 inches. Moreover, pricing starts at a VERY AFFORDABLE $250 for the Basic 12 with charts included. Hence, if you combine it with the $75 basic marine GPS receiver, making the complete system only $325. Otherwise, there’s an 8 inch all in one tablet system for $300. All units are refurbished and come with a 6 month warranty and lifetime support! Please use the contact page or email me directly at navigation.laptops@gmail.com.

I’m always happy to suggest some great options for your vessel, and answer any questions you have. My units are very expandable with autopilot, AIS, weather station, radar, and even fish finders. They support NMEA 0183 and NMEA 2000 with appropriate adapters. You can get marine weather updates in the middle of the ocean with satellite internet, such as Garmin inReach. You can go anywhere, and do anything with one of these! Navigation laptops offer a compelling, and much more affordable alternative to major chart plotter brands. We’re a small family business with low overhead costs, and we pass the savings on to you! We have supplied over 3000 units in the past 10+ years in business. I deal with you directly with no middle men or clueless support people. You don’t need to “please hold while we transfer you” ūüôā

Why use a navigation laptop or tablet as a chart plotter?

My navigation laptop systems can be much more affordable than Garmin, Lowrance, Simrad, B&G, Furuno, Humminbird, Raymarine,¬†Standard Horizon, Hondex, Si-Tex. They make fancy expensive MFD’s, but not everyone needs that. I will also support the GPS laptop you purchase forever. Furthermore, I believe that some of the commercial chart plotter brands gouge their customers. Large companies force you to upgrade by no longer supporting older units with chart and software updates. In addition, they charge outrageous fees for simple things like a larger screen size. I don’t do any of these things, and never will – guaranteed. In addition to these, please take a look at other advantages as well. A GPS laptop can offer a compelling alternative to major brands!

I am always happy to answer questions, and provide additional information. For example, exact dimensions, video demos of how something works, precise capabilities, screenshots of charts in your area, and more. I configure each unit specifically for you, which takes considerable effort. Therefore, please note that non-defective returns are only accepted within 7 days of receiving the unit and are subject to a 20% restocking fee. Some examples would be: change of mind, didn’t fit the available space, missing functionality, etc. I would much rather answer your questions before you order so I can confirm it can do what you need. I have a lot of experience, so this is not a problem! If you’re not sure if the system can do what you need, just ask me or please take a look at the video demos.

We also supply refurbished Panasonic Toughbooks for non-marine use, as well as farming GPS systems including units with RTK and auto-steer!
