All: I am rebuilding my onboard RPi computer over the winter. As part of this project
I have purchased new CHS charts
for our cruising area. Our old charts
were very old.
As I am running OpenCPN
, I am trying to figure out how to activate the charts on my RasPi. The information on the CHS site shows an activation done with an old school
setup.exe file that's included with the download.
While I have purchased the charts, I haven't downloaded the chart packages yet as I want to figure this out first.
One idea could be to install Wine on the RasPi and run the setup.exe under Wine. Not sure if anyone else has tried this.
Another idea is to activate the charts on a Windows computer and copy the charts on to the RasPi? Not sure if there is any sort of digital anti-copy technology in the downloads.
I am hoping that someone else has figured this out and can share how to do this.
Thanks in advance!
