C-MAP Updates?

We have C Map NT+ for Lake Huron, Georgian Bay and North Channel. We previously had a subscription with them whereby we would get a new updated card every year of our selected area and we would return the year old card. A few years ago an updated card did not come (around 2018). I've tried searching everywhere to find out if we could get an update to no avail. A company called Navico purchased C-Maps on 2018. Even with C-Maps being noted on their website there is no support link and no telephone number. Navico's HQ is in Norway.

Can any one shed a bit of light on this and let me know how they've worked around this issue. We have a Raymarine Pathfinder RL70RC Plus which is working quite well. I hate to have to upgrade everything due to the lack of map upgrades.

Thanks in advance for your help,
Nancy

Re: C-MAP Updates?

sorry but I find your answers too cryptic for me.

We have C Map NT+ for Lake Huron, Georgian Bay and North Channel last updated in 2017

We are using a Raymarine Pathfinder RL70RC Plus from 2004

When I went to the C-MAP website they had no updates for these maps and you cannot even buy a card reader to update the propriety cards.

It sounds like to me that you may be referring to an app or a new version.

A bit more information would be helpful.

Re: C-MAP Updates?

Yes - thanks for finding that. Unfortunately they don't seem to answer their calls or call back. I waited over an hour twice and then the system disconnects. I have to call on the international line as the 1-800 does not work from Canada.

thanks for your help!!

Re: C-MAP Updates?

Last time I got a C-Map card it was through Marine Outfitters in Kingston, and they still show a couple on their website so may be able to help. Bloody expensive, though.

Re: C-MAP Updates?

Ncohn226 They stop the program of the "club" membership. The chart chips are still available. The still offer a discount if you have a chip to exchange. Try this web address https://www.c-map.com/search-charts. I believe the US distributor in in Massachusetts USA was shut down for a while. It took me awhile to get in contact with them earlier this year.
