A fellow named Patrick, from the sailing vessel "Deep Playa" has created a very useful Excel speadsheet comparing the many navigation software
packages out there. His web site is S/V Deep Playa - Pearson 424
and the following address will bring up the spreadsheet as web document which can be downloaded.
I especially refer this to the Developers of OpenCPN
for any ideas that it may give them (I've just started to use OpenCPN
and very impressed with it - that it is free is awesome).
I have a question for the group- Does anyone know of a good source of charts
that will work on OpenCPN for French Polynesia
? Or for any of the North or South Pacific
that are not covered by United States issued NOAA electronic charts
, or the New Zealand
issued electronic charts that cover a great deal of the South Pacific
And, if anyone else wants to crosspost this elsewhere to get corrections or feedback on that spreadsheet, please feel free.
