Which do you use- Vector or Raster?

Which do you use for piloting? Vector or Raster charts?

For coastal cruising which do you use?


Is there a way to get Vector charts to show buoy numbers? Right clicking and selecting Query is nice but it would be great to see the buoy numbers.

per buoy numbers Funny you should ask- I happen to have it switched on. ..., so yes there is but Text button must be on and you have to tweak the toolbox vector chart settings. Mariners standard or Standard will show em. Read the help file-there's a better description than I can give as to what to turn off and on in the checkboxes...but You don't need "show light description" to see the buoy number

Bouy numbers really should be in the ATON label, and a lot of the time it is. But it varies between different charts. It also varies between different CM93 cells, so I guss it depends on what countrys charts the cell is based on.
