I'm planning a trip from Portugal
to New Zealand
at the end of 18 in the boat
I got built in northern Malaysia
in the late 80s.. I have a Furuno Navnet
, it kind of works but the radar
I have aloft doesnt talk to it so no radar
and then Im thinking OK, things have moved on a bit, get some new gear
Back in the day I had a set of pirated CM93 charts
mouse and a laptop
. Now I see there are plenty of sources for charts
out there, free to use. And software
Have any of you any favourites on this? Like Sea Clear or Open CPN
? Id love to hear what works for you.
Also, if you go out and buy a nav system by RayMarine
or whatever, do these costly systems run free raster charts or do you have to buy the RayMarine
charts one piece at a time??
Grateful to any who take the time to respond.
