Re: Polar Navy Thread

I have been working with the Polarview software and I am very impressed. I am particularly impressed with the GRIB data integration and display.

I have been trying to use the NOAA ENC and RNC files. I have not been able to make certain charts available in the download manager including the RNC charts 14770, 14771, 14772, 14773, 14774, 14802. These charts are close to Canada, are they possibly encoded in BSB version 4. I wouldn't have thought so as they are NOAA charts.

I am interested in purchasing the software but would like to understand this problem further. In addition do you plan to support BSB version 4 files in the future?
Thanks

I just went through the same issue. The newest version should work. The NOAA charts you mention are Polyconic (not Mercator) projection. Support for this was just added. CHS charts are also supported, but have to be activated after registering with CHS.

See Release 1.6 is out Polar Navy Co

Re: Polar Navy Thread

Updated to 1.9 today. Love the new raster chart download feature. Absolutely hate the new POI pane colors and POI pane format.

Any chance of a option to change the POI pane to the previous format?

Other than that, Polar View is a wonderful. Not sure how I got along in the ICW before Polar View with integrated Active Captain data.

Any charts compatible with Polar View that cover Asia-pacific?

Would like to give PV a trial but charts for this area are pre-requisite
Thanks

Re: Polar Navy Thread

We are full-time cruising sailors. We tried to purchase your product, but you will only ship it the credit card address. We are paperless billing customers of Amex, and the address of record is our rented home back in Texas. We are cruising Florida and the Caribbean and, because of your policy, we cannot buy Polar Navy unless we agree to have it shipped to our tenant back in Texas. This is not reasonable for traveling sailors.

Re: Polar Navy Thread

Anyone know why PolarView would crash while loading in map data on OS X? (10.8.2)

Dear all - note that this thread has been dormant for quite some time. Due to significant workload I am no longer able to consistently monitor various forum discussions.

Re: Polar Navy Thread

I installed Polar Navy a couple days ago and have downloaded the maps I want. Now I'm trying to create a few routes. But I'm having difficulty and could use some help.

When I create one route I can't determine how to end that route so I can start a new one. When I start the second route it automatically connects everything rat her than maintain two seperate routes. What am I missing?

Thanks

To stop adding waypoints to a route, hit escape key. To start a second route, hit "Q" or click the right mouse button and select "Quick Routes" from the menu. The currently active quick route will be marked by a black triangle. Select a different quick route, hit "C" to make sure it is cleared, and start adding waypoints. The software supports 4 "quick routes". If you need more, open the route manager and click on the "+" under the route list. This will create a new route, named "route 1", and make it active. You can then rename it to anything you like and add points to it the usual way.

The users manual under the help menu is terse, but informative. There is also a PolarView forum available here
