Any charts you buy other than government issue charts will come with this disclaimer.

For private, recreational vessels, of the tonage classes typical of cruising boats, this is not a practical issue. Not the same requirements are larger/commercial vessels. Many cruising boats out there who rely primarily on private issue electronic charts these days and I've never heard of a single resulting legal issue. Anyone else ever hear of an issue?

OK. Possibly they had a free download everything teaser when they took off last year that later was removed from the App. Quite common on Play.

I do not know how much they charge but their charts are good. Easy to read and as accurate as anything else in this area. My fave by far.
