I don't think the new ones are compatible with SeaClear. They are suppose to be compatible with OpenCPN
with a plugin that is free and available.
Maybe look at this thread also...
NV-charts file extension...
It looks like the NV charts might still be in BSB3 which should work with SeaClear, but they might have the wrong file extension for SeaClear to work with them. If you get them and find they do work with SeaClear will you please PM me with that info.
If/when we go to the Bahamas we plan on using the NV Charts with OpenCPN
and also buying
the Explorer charts. We will get the 3 chart set from NV...
We have used SeaClear up to this point and I like the program, but have started switching over to OpenCPN and see us using it most of the time in the future.
One thing I really like about it over SeaClear is the tide and current
information right on the chart. Before with SeaClear I would have to look on the Garmin
handheld 76S for for the tide info where we were and had no current
OpenCPN just seems to have more features being added to it all of the time and SeaClear seems to be where it is.
Good luck and please let me know if the NV charts do work with SeaClear,
