nav software and charts

Hi Everyone,

I'm planning a trip from Portugal to New Zealand at the end of 18 in the boat I got built in northern Malaysia in the late 80s.. I have a Furuno Navnet, it kind of works but the radar I have aloft doesnt talk to it so no radar and then Im thinking OK, things have moved on a bit, get some new gear.

Back in the day I had a set of pirated CM93 charts a GPS mouse and a laptop. Now I see there are plenty of sources for charts out there, free to use. And software too.

Have any of you any favourites on this? Like Sea Clear or Open CPN? Id love to hear what works for you.

Also, if you go out and buy a nav system by RayMarine or whatever, do these costly systems run free raster charts or do you have to buy the RayMarine charts one piece at a time??

Grateful to any who take the time to respond.



Safe sailing
