Can't get new chart chips

My chartplotter is 13 years old and I was looking at getting some maps for it but it is looking that they aren't available anymore. I hate to believe I need to replace a good working unit just because of the chips. This is even more of a program considering it is integrated with the radar and instruments.

I might be able to find some other work around like connecting a laptop to the NEMA (if I can figure out the electronics lingo). I must not be the first to face this, so have others done?

Maybe I need to go get a good supply of rum and start reading all the CPN threads

Re: Can't get new chart chips

I may have been wrong in the card availability. I was finding on search yesterday, but today I seem to have found a couple of suppliers.
