Re: Preferred chart format?

You are not suppose to pass in that area and should not do it.

Did you get around to trying it out on newer machines? what was the result?

Re: Preferred Chart Format ?

Back to the OP's question: I prefer the appearance of raster charts and use them pretty well all the time. Occasionally I feel like I'm being a Luddite and try to use the vector charts but I always end up back with the raster versions. My understanding is that the paper charts are the source document and everything from there is a copy (translation: risk of error). So it seems to me the raster charts should ultimately also be the most accurate. BICBW.

Yes, I tried on my newer machine and both raster and vector work nicely.
