Computer Navigation Charts


I bought a pile of used charts on Ebay. Several were Maptech chart kits with CDs. Anyone know what software program is needed to run the CDs? I can't seem to open them on my computer.


I think offshore navigator will work with those.
Or try Max sea.

Some free software that is extremely capable is SeaClear. You can find it here:

It can also use free raster charts downloaded from NOAA.

Seaclear is excellent and only cost $9.00! I am still learning to use its various features but I do not find it complicated. I certainly recommend it.

Tom and Barb Koehl

Anyone know of a software package that will run on a Mac?

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!

See the full list here!
