Can't find Raytech RNS 6.0 anywhere!

Is there a conspiracy to not allow anyone to buy Raymarine's RayTech RNS 6.0 software? I can't find it in stock anywhere and I need it for testing on Friday! Even RayMarine themselves show it out of stock. Grrrr!

Maybe that's a sign that you shouldn't be using it...

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.

Yeah yeah yeah... bite me

I'm a technogeek... I just bought a brand new laptop this weekend to hook up to the brand new GPS I just had installed on our P40 and now I need the software to interface. We'll be down in Annapolis to launch on Thursday and are leaving on Sunday, and the next time we'll be down is for our self-delivery to Lake Champlain in May. I was hoping to get the opportunity to play...

I looked at a lot of software, and because of all of the Raymarine stuff the prior owner of my boat installed, and the good reviews it got out there, figured the Raytech RNS was the best choice for me.

Plus, if I don't find it, my wife will wonder why I spent so much time this weekend spending so much money on buying a laptop for the boat (went for a 17" screen so it can double as a tv/dvd player instead of buying a separate LCD).

RNS is a pretty expensive package, and probably not as capable as some of the less expensive packages, like Cap'n Voyager, which might be a good alternative at this point.

The last several reviews of read of The Cap'n (if you're talking about the one now owned by Maptech) they say it's a dated interface and significantly lacking in features from a lot of other similar pieces of software. Maptech's Chart Nav Pro, Raymarine and Nobeltec are ones I see with a lot of decent reviews. It's tough to choose! The money is less of an issue than the functionality for me.

Maptech's Chart Nav Pro may be the way to go then... I haven't seen any recent reviews of the Capn...It is very hard to use software if you can't even buy it from the maker...

Labatt,
If cost isn't a big issue, I can tell you that Nobeltec is an absolutely fantastic product. I used it for about a year before switching (not by choice) to Maptech. I found Maptech awkward and frustrating by comparison and after a month convinced the boss to switch to Nobeltec. If you like well executed software with an intuitive interface, Nobeltec is really tough to beat.

And no I don't have an interest in the company, I just appreciate quality stuff. Oh yeah, great product support as well.

I'm installing a Raymarine autopilot and the control panel is made in Hungary, of all places. Lord knows where your software is being produced!

Thanks for the pointer. Just asked the guy if he had it and he orders it too... seems to be on a national backorder.
