Re: Install CM93 on a Mac using OpenCPN

Where we cruise, many of the surveys that are used for the most current charts are 100 years out of date.

As for up-to-date marks, ranges, etc, those sticks the locals push into the mud change or disappear regularly and the bleach bottles on a string sink every couple of weeks - no charts could keep current with them no matter how hard they tried.

3 year old charts are no problem.

I have the very latest up-to-date CMap charts on a chartplotter and the CM93/2 on a computer. I have never seen a difference between them from Panama to Belize. Not a single difference.

I use CM 93 as back up to my regular charts

What has changed in the North Sea in the last 3 years?

Re: Install CM93 on a Mac using OpenCPN

Sorry for not addressing the problem Sappho. I have never had a problem on my MBP - installing those charts has been as easy as others have posted.

You will need to decompress the charts (makes a big sized folder), then point OPCN at the folder containing them and tell it to build the chart database.

So I don't know why you are having troubles.
