i wish i could help more living there but not sailed around but know it well i anybody needs a good free see card with gps look for sea clear II its free or chart world

SeaClear is a PC based chart plotter. When connected to a GPS, it will display the ship live on a

chart, data on current position, speed, heading and much more.
Charts in SeaClear are of raster type, and can be commercially available BSB/KAP and GEO/NOS
charts or created from paper or screen originals.
The chart is moving to always show the ship, and new charts are loaded as needed when set up for
automatic loading.
Routes may easily be created and used to assist in the navigation.
Tracks can be displayed, saved to file and converted to routes.
Position databases with waypoints can be used to quickly find places with special meaning or used
to create routes.
To keep as much as possible of the screen for charts, pressing the right mouse button to open a
popup menu to access most functions.
A "Dashboard" displays data from the GPS, current route and other status information. To maximize
the screen area, the dashboard may be temporarily folded.
With the dashboard, several functions may be controlled. In manual mode it contains a top menu
and provides quick access to many functions.
If no GPS data is available, a ”DR” panel, allowing direct input of speed and heading, replaces the
GPS panel. If NMEA speed or heading data is available, it can continue to update the DR panel.
Dead reckoning calculation is performed to obtain the current position.
The mouse cursor shape displays the current operational mode.
The title-bar displays current chart, scale, zoom level and radar ring-step.
Most information can be printed out. All lists can also be saved to disk from the preview window.
AIS-targets are plotted on chart based on available NMEA data from AIS-transponder or receiver.

I'm not afraid of storms, for I'm learning to sail my ship.
