Whose website did you go to?
You will not be able to use the same maps in Nobeltec
and on the chartplotter
You will not be able to use any downloaded maps on the chartplotter
You CAN use free downloaded RNC (raster) maps from the US or other free or paid for raster maps (BSB only) in Nobeltec DEPENDING on the version of Nobeltec you have. You cannot, as of now, use the home-scanned charts
I could be wrong on the first two, but I am not aware of ANY chartplotter that uses C-Map
that will handle charts from any other source other than the C-Map
chips. Could be wrong...
If you use OpenCPN
instead of (or in addition to) Nobeltec, you can use all the BSB
raster charts Nobeltec can use, + all the ENC
vector charts you can find. Many are free, even more cost. It will also support CM93 charts, which are easy to find for download if you look around. Legality of the CM93s is iffy at best.
(A list of the legally free raster and vector I am aware of can be found in the second link in my signature. Well, except for a couple of recent links I've been to lazy to add.)
I love Nobeltec. A lot. But it's just so expensive and the charts are expensive, as well. So next time I do a trip, while I'll have Nobeltec running, my main software
will be OpenCPN
. Along with a cheap
plotter and paper charts as backup. And two battery
powered GPSs. And the sextant
