Electronic Chart Plotter

Any one know if it is possible to reconfigure a Furuno Plotter form C-Map to Navionics?

It would help if you said what model Furuno ChartPlotter...they probably make quite a few models now...and some of them probably can use both Navionics and C-Map, and others can't. In any case, you should probably check with Furuno's tech support over on their website.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Good point. It's an 1833. I have had zero luck with Furuno tech suppport They have declined to answer three emails (from 3 accounts lest it was a server issue).

According to the Furuno site.

Utilizes Furuno CDC or Navionics® mini chart cards


So if you need C-Map support, I think you're RTF or SOL.

You can absolutely use Navionics with Furono Chart Plotters. That's what I use and they are terrific. Good luck.

The Panbo marine Electronics Blog had found a few problems with a ledge not being on all of the electronic charts. It was Navionics that was missing a critical ledge on their version of the charts.
