i use navionics as a backup to my Garmin 60cx handheld. it does the trick but the closest it will get you is 160ft... wide margin IMO unless you have a bottom machine which i do. It works great personally, and i would pair it with a Lifeproof waterproof case and a bungee cord and carabiner so you dont lose it.

I use navionics as a backup and it works great. It's also a great quick study before a trip since its always with me. I also like the satellite link allowing it to be used regardless of whether you have cell service to your phone.
