The Northstar 951X is a vector chart plotter, and, like the Northstar 962X, it's the best of its kind. Instead of the scanned NOAA chart CDs that the 962X uses, the 951X uses Navionics Nav-Chart Cartridges for seamless, highly detailed charts. Northstar's own navigation software gives you intuitive point-and-shoot convenience, complete with tidal data: just point to any spot on the chart and get a 24-hour display of high and low tides. Interfaces with Loran-C, and can generate "phantom" Loran TDs from your GPS. Charts are easily updatable, and you can mark your own locations and symbols on the charts. The 951X is completely waterproof and sunlight-readable. Interfaces with all sorts of navigation and control devices. Slim, mounts anywhere (flush-mounted or yoke), large 5+" screen.
If you're considering a top-notch vector chart plotter with a full set of bells and whistles, here it is. It's the best plotter we've ever seen for this price range.
