The Great Loop is an awesome way to spend half a year or more cruising 6000+ continuous miles, never visiting the same place twice! I have supplied hundreds of boaters over the years with systems configured with marine charts for the Great Loop! Coming from the American or Canadian side? No problem, got you covered! Any of my navigation laptop or navigation tablet systems will come loaded with the Great Loop marine charts you need to enjoy your trip safely and conveniently. At no extra charge!

Why use a navigation laptop or tablet with Great Loop charts?
My navigation laptops can be much more affordable than Garmin, Lowrance, Simrad, B&G, Furuno, Humminbird, Raymarine, Si-Tex. I will also support the GPS laptop your purchase forever! Furthermore, I believe that some of the commercial chart plotter brands gouge their customers. Large companies force their clients to upgrade. They stop 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! Moreover, please take a look at other advantages as well. A GPS laptop can offer a compelling alternative to major brands!
