Jeez guys. This is pirating 101 type stuff. To the above poster with trouble extracting, your zip archive is probably broken. Download it again, or find a better source.

The usual "cruiser" CM93's work fine with OpenCPN. There's several different versions though, make sure you have the newer release.

The CM93 data seems to come from C-Map. They only have NT+, MAX, and MAX Pro today so maybe CM93 data is really free?
It was the most widely distributed chart package due to lack of encryption, or encryption that was easily cracked (I can't recall which). It's definitely still licensed/owned, not free to distribute, etc.

Almost every anchorage will have someone that has "CM93's", most of which are old, some are really old/broken (lateral markers missing from inland waterways and other oddities.)

If someone is after freebies, I think there's better options out there that can even be used on some plotters with a bit of work (I won't name them here).

This worked fine last night. Opencpn had no trouble with them once you extract files from the iso. I have only looked at regions 1 & 2 so far but the data looks complete for the others. All done in 'buntu 9.10.
ps. I can't help w*n users as I know nothing about it.

Download C-MAP 93v2 may 2009 Marina Charts Torrent - KickassTorrents.com

I tested the difference between cm93 2009 and 2010 edition.
I just recommend to everybody NOT to delete the 2009 edition for the 2010, sometimes there are more details on the older chart !

if you look at : 058 15.522 N, 021 52.121 E . this seemed as an Harbour entry on the 2010 edition but not at all on the 2009 edition ! ( depht 0.9 meter !! not on the 2010 chart )

read also downwards for the same theme here : 2.1.0 Bug Discussion

another bug on cm93:

try position 059 46.982 N, 021 25.152 E

I see just a grey square...... ?

tried in google maps or earth, this seems to be a "white spot" on earth.

This is probably for military reasons, as this is a restricted area.
Similar things, but different, is going on in the area around N 59 00' E 18 02', the later area in Sweden , while your area is in Finland.

I just downloaded this file

Download C-MAP 93v2 may 2009 Marina Charts Torrent - KickassTorrents.com

I also upgraded the latest version of OpenCPN but all I get is the black screen with blue lines. I did as help suggested and zoomed in to find the red outline charts but there aren't any.
What did I do wrong.
I had the older version 1.3.4 of Open CPN going yesterday but I was also using an old version of CM93

The files I have downloaded in OpenCPN are not being excepted.
The files were downloaded through Vuze, but they are obviously in the wrong format.
There is an ISO file a jpeg and a Gif and txt. Can anyone explain how to do this.

Try googling CNF.SeaSoft for an alternative source of CM93
