They just stopped working but its not an OpenCPN restriction.
I queried this with Chartworld and their reply confirms my suspicions ...

"thank you for your interest in or products.

We as ChartWorld are selling just the licenses to use charts from different chart producers. In case of official ENCs it is not possible to purchase chart licenses which will not expire but only for 3, 6, 9 or 12 months.

Alternatively we could provide you with chart folios from the private chart producer Navionics. These chart folios needs to be purchased for a license subscription period of 12 months as well but after the expiration of these 12 months you are still able to display the charts. You will just not receive any updates for this folio anymore if the license has been expired. An example for one of these folios is 1I03013 (Eastern Mediterranean Sea).

I hope you find this information of use.

Best Regards,
Gunnar Ruediger
Head of Customer Services EMEA"

I think, for me, the S63 OpenCPN plugin is a white elephant !

The standard does not cover this and it would be a function of OCPN/the S-63 plug-in to stop drawing the charts. Does not happen.

Let'e have a look at the S-63 standard:


explaining the SSE25 error message

So OCPN does show expired cells.

That a Chartworld representative wants to sell charts or perhaps has to deal with systems that behave differently (and not standard conform), that's another story...

So let's see what Afinite's test will bring up. There is something going wrong with his install. He shall see his expired cells.

S63 charts will work forever, but you will not get any new updates after the licence periods ends. This is defined in the s63 standard. All references to S63 maps stopping working due to expired licence is misleading information. If the chats stops working, the reason is not an expired licence.

With CM93 now almost 5 years without a update and other charts difficult and expensive OpenCpn needs to look for alternatives for people wanting to cruise outside free gov charts.

Would it be possible to build a plugin to access the reasonably priced charts available from Windows apps like I-Boating .
This would give everyone access to updated charts with all the benefits of the best plotting software.
