Maptech ??

mlc101, yes, nice thing about the CMAP NT+ cartridges is that MaxSea, Raytech & NavPak software can read them with a cartridge reader. Sorry that I didn''t add this in previous posting.
Best, John

MaxSea Vs Nobeltec

I am a commercial fisherman with experience in both programs and MaxSea is far better for a few reasons

1. Layering
2. Supports many more charts
3. More reliable
4. Better Tech support
5. Nobeltec 3 strikes rule

AND MY BIGGEST PROBLEM IS I CANT CONVERT MY NOBELTEC WAYPOINTS TO MAXSEA. I HAVE 600,000 MARKS IT WOULD TAKE FOREVER TO DO BY HAND.

Can anyone help me with that problem.

I'm an old, lo-tech, paper chart guy. I got TIKI NAVIGATOR. It uses free NOAA charts, the graphics are great,and uncluttered, and it's very intuitive and easy to use, especially at sea.

You might want to consider buying one of the Maptech Chart Books that include the companion CD, which includes a copy of Maptech Lite. You then purchase a chart CD on E-bay with all the raster charts of the US for under $20.00. Your final purchase would be a small GPS (hockey Puck) from one of the GPS stores online with a USB interface. ( found mine for $38.50) You should be able to do all this for around $100.00. Now you have a basic navigation program on you laptop. Not fancy, but basic, but it is adequate for most recreational marine navigation uses.
