S-63 UK charts

Hello everyone

I'm setting up OpenCPN on a linux machine, and I'm now looking for upto date charts for the UK cost lines and the Thames.
It seems that OpenCPN support s-63 and that those can be purchased,
ADMIRALTY Vector Chart Service
But has anyone managed to do this on Linux, and is there any pitfalls I should be aware of?

Thank you very much
Thomas

Re: S-63 UK charts

Thomas,

we know personally about one user who licensed charts from Admiralty under Windows. No issues at all. Worked out of the box.
At bit surprising as he came with the whole DVD/CD set from UKHO/Admiralty - seems that Admiralty works this way - and finally used InstallPermits for three cells.

Anyhow the S-63 plug-in works under all architectures and you can license from different resellers. Admiralty is one and works ok.

When you license cells/charts be aware about the different license periods and hence different costs. After expiring the charts are still at hand but you won't get any updates anymore.

We have direct relations to Chartworld.com at this moment and no feedback from UKHO.

More information at the S-63 gateway for OCPN at o-charts.org
