How does one update the Active Captain. I have the original download from a few months ago, but am looking for a more recent...

Hello - new to Polar View, just loaded it. Got the chart download figured out, and the Active Captain (AC) turned on. Question - on my iPad (hate it) AC has lots more details and drop downs for info, comments etc. Is there a way to make this operational in Polar View?

I am looking at a Qstarz BT-Q818 66-Channel Bluetooth GPS Receiver for my Microsoft Surface Pro. Anyone know of any issues, or is there a recommendation for a Bluetooth GPS that will work with a new Surface Pro and Polar View?

As much as I hate to say it, the Garmin Bluecharts and AC work well on the iPad, but I'm tired of hauling several devices around, hence the new Surface Pro.

Thanks -
Dave

Thank you, Support. I figured it out earlier - should have made a note here about that.
I ordered that Qstarz GPS - will be seeing how that works in a few weeks.
