If your laptop has 1, 2, or more GB RAM, it does not matter. To run Maxsea in every version, you need to just set the Paging (Swap) file to zero, as it really is of not much use anymore with so much RAM available.
Can you confirm that for MaxSea v12.6.3.7 too? I want to try this version on a laptop with Vista. AFAIK, it work with cm93 ed3 charts only! Is that true? Thanks!

Version 12 does not recognise the CM93 directory charts, as these are in a different format but you can still run BSb charts (or similar)

Anybody using Maxsea with a MAC and VMWare Fusion?


Would you recommend it or just buy a PC to run it.

Well, I tried it in Parallels, but unfortunately between my relatively slow mac laptop and running it inside an emulator the performance was frustrating.

Instead I purchased MacEnc which, in combination with a couple of other software and data tools, provides all the functionality I require. You might check out MacSailing.net for other mac software/hardware discussions.

I was having problems with Maxsea interfacing with my GPS. I sent an email to Rob at: rob1@cruisingservices.net and he had me set right in a few minutes. This guy was a cruising sailor and now is in IT.
