Do you think there will ever be a Navionics plugin available for OpenCPN?
For me that would be the best navigation solution.

For nothing more than a comparison; is there a difference also in your Navionics and the one use here: My Ship Tracking Free Realtime AIS Vessel Tracking Vessels Finder Map > Change default chart setting to "Navionics - Nautical"

The web page seems to have a recent version of the Navionics charts of Finland (based on observing what small mistakes they have corrected).

Re: Navionics Charts

Please excuse me for being dense here.

I have some Navonics CF format chart sets (circa 2010) we inherited from the PO. They obviously work on the Raymarine plotter, but I would like to do some work on my backup computer. That is dual booted and has both Fugawi (WinXP) and OpenCPN in its own (unix variant) partition.

Any way I can work through Fugawi or elsewise to use these existing charts on either Fugawi or OpenCPN?

Re: Navionics Charts

Have anybody tried creating .kap maps from SASPlanet?

A range of different map sources are available in raster format.

Tore, of course. GE2KAP does it. You know that.

Re: Navionics Charts

Tore is talking about something like that (example attached here).
This is a kap file from SAS-Planet using Navionics. See the SAS-Planet site how to build and receive such charts.

Re: Navionics Charts

And I am saying that GE2KAP does that including Navionics chart when sasplanet has them available. You can get GE2KAP from the Downloads page of my website: Sample

Perhaps you have not remarked that you don't need GE2KAP.
The sample above was directly downloaded from SAS-Planet, nothing else needed.

Re: Navionics Charts

CarCode your screenshot doesn't show a chart its just a png file. As far as I know GE2KAP is the only program that will create a chart from SasPlanet.

Re: Navionics Charts

Keeping up my dense theme, could you please give a wee bit of intro to sasplanet? Where do I find these charts?

My first question was is there a way to display my CF format Navonics charts in OpenCPN or Fugawi. I take it the answer to that is a resounding NO.

I'm trying to find Caribbean charts I can view on OpenCPN. Ideally I want to have Explorer or Wavylkne charts on both my iPhone/pad and on OpenCPN. I don't mind paying for the charts, but prefer to not pay twice.

Re: Navionics Charts

I created charts for most of the Caribbean from various sources using GE2KAP and can be downloaded by following this link:
