is there any hope here? a bsb3 to 4? or do i have to change software
. ( i like opencpn, clean, simple)
do any of the other free progs support bsbv4?
I've heard Canada has a huge charts
issue due to the prior monopoly arrangement with absurd pricing etc. The situation may improve now that the governmental agency has managed to purchase
rights to its own governmental charts
back from the company.
opencpn/seaclear don't support bsb
v4. Can you not procure the charts in an older format? Opencpn supports C-Map
charts by the way, which should be available for Canada.
