Maxsea & CMap

I have CM93 charts running on Maxsea 10.1.3.2 and, generally, I think it is excellent and doesn't take too long to become almost intuitive but one thing is bugging me! When I call up "Tidal information", a bunch of icons light up around the coast of the USA but nothing in the area of Europe. Am I missing something obvious or don't the European statistics exist?
If I can't access them thru Maxsea, is there any other site giving flow direction and strength for the eastern Atlantic and the the small flows in the Mediterranean?

There must be something missing in your data. Mine lights up the little tidal bars all over the world.

I get those tidal current arrows in the North Sea using C-Map on a Standard Horizon CP. However, they appear and disappear as a function of the zoom depth at times and I am not sure they are very accurate either.

Thank you both for information, I suspect that I may be missing some files, any idea what file extension that the tidal data has or what file names carry the european data?

Sorry mate, that's way above my "clever" level.
