Re: Electronic Charts - Need advice
Electronic charts are usually based on the "official" charts, eg CHS in Canada, etc. We found in Mexico the charts were completely unreliable, often showing anchored a half mile or more inland - not the plotter's fault, but the fact that the charts available for it were based on long outdated, poorly surveyed Mexican govt charts.
Would anyone else's program be any better? I doubt that Ramarine, Cmap or whoever would want the liability of producing their own charts....
