zCAPN and Tux's Adventure
"When we arrived in Mobile Bay and saw the fog, we powered up the notebook and attached the RS-232 cable to the GPS. The chart came up as expected and promptly located my position. The iPAQ then loaded, and I proceeded to insert the proper IP address for the CAPN Voyager server running the notebook. The PDA slowly brought up an exact duplicate of the display on the notebook. The iPAQ was the controller from that point forward and offered the ability to change the zoom level on the notebook simultaneously. I found it exciting that I could walk around the boat and monitor my location on exact duplicates of NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association) charts produced by SoftChart International."
