Just curious really...
I see quite often on certain "big match races" (rolex cup, american cup etc) people (tacticians?) holding some "ipad" style computers (well a bit thicker in fact) and checking things. What are these things? Certainly not "simple" gps.
Similarly in the volvo ocean or other around the globe races they have computers on board and check wheather plus I am sure lots of other things too. Again, what do they use? What software?
OK, now back to real world...

It's probably a generic tablet PC from any of various manufacturers. Couldn't tell you what software they might use. On America's Cup it's probably at least partly custom-written.
