We use two iPads and always two different chart apps.
In Canada, we used Garmin Bluechart and MaxSea TZ.
In the U.S., we used Garmin Bluechart and iNavx from Florida to Maine.
In Atlantic Europe, since we started in Ireland we 've been using Garmin Bluechart and Navionics Europe HD.
Each time we enter new ports or anchorages, both iPads are on and each of us is responsible for monitoring one of the two charts.
We got a mygoflight mount to keep the helmsman 's iPad in line of sight.
In addition, the iPads run the standard set of weather and boat integration apps, including PredictWind, Weather4D, B&G GoFree and Fusion Link.
Garmin Bluechart, which had excellent charts in the U.S. and Canada, is pretty substandard in Europe (lack of detail/lack of accuracy), even if not entirely useless. If we find an Mediterranean-wide alternative at a reasonable price, we 'll ditch Garmin as a daily tool.
