Jeppesen Wakeup

I am in northern Chile preparing to continue my cruise. Arrived here in Iquique in October and have been enjoying life in grand fashion. I was going to go around the south end but am singlehanding and it looked like too much work in the canals, anchoring and tying to shore in windy conditions. I have changed my plans and now will head west to the Gambiers but have no charts. I've emailed Jeppesen 4 times -- different email addresses but no reposnse. I need C-Map megawides for the Pacific and for Indonesia/Thailand. Does anyone have a good, up-to-date link to the C-Map Mega-Wide index?
Any recommendations as to where I can order these electronic cmaps and get them in good time? I'm leaving early April. Why is this so hard?

There seems to be quite a few online providers. Have you tried some of them?

For Gambiers the best paper chart is the French one. I am not sure how and if it has been digitized into C-map. worth having onboard.

We entered the lagoon on a sketch from a book ... but I saw the chart in gandarme's office.

BTW If you can get to Mangareva before the Bastille's Day you will see some great dance and hear great Polynesian singing.

Ahhh ... Gambiers ... Pamplemousse, Pamplemousse ... ;-)))

The outfit I have dealt with is BlueWater Books and Charts

Their 1-800 phone support has always been superb. From Chile, try the e-mail. Hopefully they are just as responsive.

The only thing kinda strange about their site is when you get to the page you want, the links to the products is actually just test lines below the main body of the page.
