These do not read in OpenCPN
, and I believe they are encrypted to open only with specific navigation software program.
Does anyone know what navigation software works with these .scn files?
I had no problem "getting" the same "disk" as you, with minimum searching on the net.....
I think that Global Navigation Software Company
is what you're looking for.
What you get is likely an old set of US raster charts
, well known to be inaccurate, if used together with a GPS
. The are probably more appropriate if used with traditional navigation methods. There are heaps written about this Mexican problem on the Net. Be warned!
