Using oSENC charts on multiple devices

My understanding is that paid for oSENC encrypted charts from o-charts can be used on up to two devices simultaneously. However, I cannot seem to find in instructions anywhere for how to do this. I'd be running them on my laptop, which they are currently loaded on, and a tablet that would be in the cockpit. Can someone point me to directions on how to install them on the second device? Do I need a second s67 permit to do this?

Re: Using oSENC charts on multiple devices

S67? Do you mean S-63?


O-charts offers both oeSENC charts directly and s-63 licences to download ENC charts from other sources. These are two different things.



If you are getting oeSENC charts then S-63 licences don't come into it:

"...
If you are installing your chart in a secondary system or you have reinstalled your OS you have to choose New System. Once you have installed your chart on 2 different systems, the chart will not be available."

svspirited..
If you're talking about oeSENC chart license your "backup" slot can easily be used on another device. But since you're mention S67 permit it's confusing. You're mixing apples and pears. A S63 user permit has nothing to do with oeSENC chart license.
To use a oeSENC chart set on another PC you just open Options->Charts->oeSENC charts. "Refresh chart list" and log in using your user/password and select download for any chart set having the status "Available". Name the actual PC with proper "System name" and accept to assign this System name to the chart set. The similar procedure as for the PC where you already have the first set.
The manual is found on O-Charts.org Manual: https://manuals.o-charts.org/oesenc_en_US.html

Good luck
