Ahh, you see you can actually scan charts and then get lat/long entered on them, I did it already by taking a photo of a chart (just to see the process), running a few utilities and loaded it into OpenCPN, problem is of course it's nowhere near as good as scanning it. I just object to paying for a scan of something I already paid for, have no intention whatsoever of selling, nor distributing in any way so I can't see an issue there.
Is easy enough to enter updates from the NOTAMs, I can just add them directly in the chart software.
