This post is more of an update on how things have been going. I initially planned to hold the phone and look at is as and when needed. However, I’ve spent more money and now have a railblaza phone mount which works really well. What I love the most is the live updates. As I paddle over a spot I watch my chart change immediately and get stored for future reference. This really is a nice feature that is going to help me find and re-visit those marks that might hold fish.
Battery life on the phone continues to be adequate for a morning session but you would struggle if out all day. This is the only real disadvantage I can see with the set up.
The new mount for the phone:

The clever bit. Here you can see the area that I have just been over. It shows how much extra detail is actually underneath you compared to the original chart:
Looking forward to more sessions with the vexilar.
