I always navigate with charts. The GPS and radar are neat tools but I don't rely on them.

same here. grew up on the great lakes and when my grandfather handed me my own set of keys to the boat when i was 14 there was no such thing as gps. i learned old school and still use it today. i do have gps on the boat though, it is kinda fun to have. mostly use it to check speed and monitor fuel usage (its a NavMan with flow scans).
