I was wondering. I saw the update link at the very end so I assumed all the necessary changes are in that file. So the 2009 set was updated to 2010 using that single download. Can someone confirm that this is correct. The help.txt file seems to indicate this is the case.

Wrt to accuracy of the charts, I cannot comment. They appear to be correct for my local however that does not mean much.

Best regards

I'm affraid you need a total download of all 10 sections. The last file is only a 7 MB update with some error corrections. There is an infuriatingly slow download filter,having to wait 1 hour + 60 min. between each download unless you subscribe and pay for their download manager.

My fellow scrooges
You can make the download process a little less annoying.
Download and use the DepositFile Downloadmanager.

Cheers, Len.

I checked many details and find them quite good and up to date.
Still these charts are not good for using small scale when crossing large areas such as the Pacific as whole islands do not show up till you hit them. Unless you change to large scale just in time of course. Also weird items such as the two marinas indicated 029 14.568 S 177 52.767 W near Raoul Ils in the Kermadecs . There are definitely NO marinas there.

Interesting. On New Zealand NZ2225_1 chart (that I guess is the source for CM93), the 2 marinas are reported as well. OK, not exactly as "Marinas"...

Ciao, Marco.

Re download CM93 - 2010
As I said,"unless you subscribe and pay a monthly fee"

The "Boat harbour" (and anchor sign) probably means "Boat anchorage"

I have a question for our programers: Is there a way or a program which will give you the option of capturing large graphics from a website which is 'pannable' using click mouse and drag,rather than the usual scroll bars.
My Snagit screen capture prog. captures any area outside the screen,but only from pages accessed with scroll bar.

I wonder if we should post links to opencpn.org and Marco's chart download page to help customers with truth in advertising? I don't mind them selling GPL opencpn pre-set up on a laptop and with a tested GPS, that's neat. but I seem to recall that while LINZ didn't mind BSD-like redistribution, Marco's personal terms state non-commercial use. That's not neat.

Of course they could have registered all those the charts themselves, ...
?

If you use Mozilla/Firefox, you can right-click and choose Save-image-as. That would save the whole image in your PC. Some web sites ruin this with javascript tricks; for example, Google Maps use tiles. Yet you can always take a screen shot of what the screen covers.

dpons..

If it was possible to use 'save as' then we would not need Snagit.
I was looking for a facility giving the option of using the bar scroll method where
internet pages are panable but have no scroll bars. Thanks anyway.

Some sites use a technology known as "ajax", which is a fancy name for javascript tricks. Although it makes web sites more appealing, it's a curse for everyone: it robs a lot of CPU cycles and it's a messy "Rube Goldberg" type of thing if you open the hood.

One thing you may try, if using firefox: right-click, View-Page-Info, then Media. It may be that the whole image is already in your browser's cache and you can save it. Unless is tiled (a typical "ajax" trick); if so you are screwed.

Using my Firefox on this page does not have a 'View Page' option,nor 'Media'.
A screendump of a typical page shows the following: (if it's any help?)
