Australian East Coast Charts

I am setting up Open Cpn on my tablet for an east coast based boat.

I have read a few old posts, but none in the last 12 months that I could find so thought I would ask again.

Is there an option for "better priced" charts for Australia than with the government agency?

Any advice greatly appreciated in advance.

Re: Australian East Coast Charts

I use CM93 as do most OpenCPN users in Australia. The links in this old thread are still valid. As far as I know they are the latest available. You must use Edition 2, not Edition 3.

CM93 Charts

The charts are from 2011, so be aware that some changes would not have been applied.

I also use Navionics on ny Android tablet, and the charts are more recent. That was around $50 3-4 years ago, and they have since moved to a annual subscription basis for updates. But I couldn't find the Australian charts on Google Play when I looked for prices just now.

Are you using a Windows or Android tablet? I have seem some comments on here about problems with W10 not seeing the GPS.

Re: Australian East Coast Charts

Thanks Wanderlust.

It will be on an Experia android tablet.

I found the same thing with Navionics, I have sent them an email as I always found it useful in the past. Not sure where it has gone.

I will have a play with version 2 and see what I can see as they say.

Thanks again
