    Re: The perils of going to sea relying on a minimum of modern electronics

    Here's another (and possibly better) report of the incident from a commercial marine oriented mailing list:
    MAIB: Experienced Launch Skipper Relied on iPad Navigation App Prior to Collision – gCaptain

    Is it possible that the skipper was using a WiFi connected GPS rather than having an internal GPS in the iPad?  I know you can buy "hockey puck" GPS units with a USB cable to connect to your computer; the existence of a WiFi (or Bluetooth) version would not surprise me.
