    There are other free alternatives but this is the one I am familar with.

    Free charts can be had from the US (US waters only), Brazil and New Zealand (NZ and a bunch of Pacific Islands) and a few others. Elsewhere you will need to pony up for the charts.

    To make this work with a laptop you will need a GPS dongle.
