    There is no app to covers what you're looking for. But activecaptain is close since it's recommendations by locals, and local boating/fishing forums will help. I've used those as well as Google Maps to plan my long trips.

    I use Navionics. It's worth the investment if your devices screen is visible in the sun.

    Plus one on Navionics. Have used it a number of times and is accurate. You do have to pay for it though.

    I use Garmin HomePort, free download with my Garmin. It's really the only thing I've ever used, so I can't even tell you if it's any good or not. What I can tell you is that I would not get the 640 again. I thought it was the right one for me, but it really isn't any easier to read than the 78sc and has much less memory. I guess the only benefit is that you can add a transducer to activate the depth finder on the unit.
