Re: BVI chart/nav app

As I mentioned last night, I have successfully managed to convert the nice NGA images of BVI into reliable electronic raster charts. This is the exact same format that NOAA uses for their freely distributed charts of the US waters. So far I have gotten them to work flawlessly with SeaClear and OpenCPN on my PC, and with the Marine Navigator Android app on my Nexus4 cell phone and Nook Color tablet.

I have yet to find any iPad app that will import the NOAA KAP files (or these new KAP files that I have created). If anyone knows of an iPad app (even a paid one) that has this capability, please let me know.
