Active Captain

Does anyone know if they are able to get the features available on ACTIVE CAPTAIN with a B&G chart plotter? Or does one have to have Garmin to get Active Captain to show up?

Re: Active Captain

Hi,
This may not be much help but I see no other replies.
ACTIVE CAPTAIN was purchased by Garmin. And Active Captain had a product called DragQueen which we used a lot.
Garmin no longer supports DragQueen.
DragQueen can still be had on the web for Android.
As for Active Captain I would suggest calling Garmin support.
Hope this helps and I may be off the mark so call Garmin,
Chip

hen I turn on my Rose Point navigation it gives me the option to add active captain. But even though I am logged in to the active captain on the web, it won't let me log in through Rose Point navigation. Keeps telling me the user name or password is wrong. I KNOW it is correct because I have Active Captain open in another window.

Now my B&G navigation doesn't have the option for AC integration at all.
Just wondered if anyone else has had this problem.
Thanks for trying!

Re: Active Captain

All these interfaces seem to be screwed up. After Garmin purchased AC, they redid the code for what they claim were user security reasons. I think that messed up interfaces to third party software. I know the website no longer works like it used to. I does not have the distance/routing tool anymore, for example. AC boasted of all it's interfaces with nav software and that's exactly how I used it when offline. I really miss that, especially on my most recent cruise.

Hopefully, Garmin gets their act back together.
