Welcome to the UKWA Home Page Forums Cruising charts? Reply To: charts?


Hi Dave M – great to hear that the MapTech charts are really neat.

I am thinking of buying a GPS, and would welcome a couple of pointers if you are willing and able:

With the map tech charts, I appreciate you can use on the PC, do you then move co-ordinates and waypoints onto the GPS? Or print off a section of chart that you are going to use?

And do you know if there is the ability, should one have a GPS with the ability to show maps / charts, to actually download selected charts to the GPS and then be seeing the chart on your GPS as you sail?

Would welcome any pointers you have.

(for info, I am considering buying a Garmin ETrex Venture, but think the map Software might only be their proprietary Mapsource Maps….)
