Download Seaclea11 (free) Download goverment charts(free). Install seaclear. copy charts you need to a folder on your hard drive. Put all charts in a folder, go into each folder you need (index included in download of charts) and put into one folder usally in the c drive windows program files seaclea11 charts but you can put it anywhere on your hd. Restart, open Mapcal (included in SeaClear11 download) Go to Tools, Set Directory and point to the folder we created with all the charts in. Next while still in Mapcal go to tools scan for new charts and it should find all your charts. Close Mapcal and open Seaclear11 you might need to pick the right comm port for your gps. Simple, open up device manager with the gps hooked up find the device and go to propertiers and see which comm port it is using. In Seaclear11 go to tools properties and select comm ports and assign it the correct port. Restart Seaclear11 and you should see the gps data displayed, it might take a few min so relax, smoke,drink and or both. If all is well, read the manual because all that I am posting is in there.
