Re: Are there North American sailors out there willing to contribute to Zulu Waterway

Zulu now has worldwide Navionics charts for free as one of the map options. It's also had many improvements to performance and some changes to the look/feel. Let me know what you think.

Navionics and NOAA charts

If you have Navionics charts, is there a need for NOAA charts? Do NOAA charts offer something that the Navionics charts don't in terms of details etc?

It would be great to have an answer to this.
