Thanks for the replies. The reason I asked was that I bought a Raymarine C80 display, and went to my local marine dealer to by the Navionics card, for my area. They said they would have to burn a copy, as they don't stock them (with the consent of the manufacturer, and charging me full price, I imagine). However, the guy that does it wasn't there, so I will have to stop by another time.
I wondered whether they needed some code to allow them to do this.
Also, the C80 will be mounted in the cockpit. I do not want to take out the $250 catrd each time I leave the boat for the weekend, but don't want it to vanish either. I though that it would be useful to have a cheap copy to leave in the display all the time.
Re legalities: I am not promoting the copying of the charts to give to others. However, there are few people today who have not broken laws by downloading songs, movies, copying CDs, splitting their cable service, etc.
