I am considering the purchase of a Verizon Droid. I presently have nothing and was looking at what was available for the iPhone when my son in law put me onto the Droid and pointed out that the network was better and technologically it was a better choice. But I had found the apps I needed for the iPhone that made it the choice for me...unless those same apps are available for the Droid. I will be using the Droid to replace several instruments on my sail boat, a GPS with charting capability, an ATIS reciever, and a wind speed sensor. I need an app that will download NOAA navigational charts and that will allow the Droid GPS to track on the charts. I need an app that will present on the screen the ATIS information from neighboring commercial ships. And most of all, I need an app similar to what I had for my Sprint phone 5 years ago that will EITHER allow me to use the Droid as a modem for the laptop...OR that will use the laptops screen to display what is on the Droids screen when it is running any of the apps. The reason this last is so critical is that I use my laptop in the wheel house to display information and the Droid screen is just too small for a navigation display in a boat.
