Mexico Charts for OpenCPN

Hi - does anybody know where we might be able to download ECNs for The Mexican coast line from Puerto Vallate to San Carlos? With thanks

One option are the Blue Latitude raster charts from Fugawi for OpenCPN:

Does it make sense to go with Navionics? Looks like the Blue Latitude charts are no longer available and the Mexico link is for paper charts.

Re: Mexico Charts for OpenCPN

https://digaohm.semar.gob.mx/hidrogr...sNauticas.html The catalog linked from there says that all of them are available in both paper form and in the standard BSB format readable by OpenCPN. I just hope that they are not serious asking 467MXN (~USD25) for each...

Re: Mexico Charts for OpenCPN

Yes the charts from the Mexican Navy are pricey but about the same price for paper charts sold elsewhere. What I suggest is buy the paper coastal charts from https://digaohm.semar.gob.mx/hidrografia.html and download cm93 charts (I found them on this forum but lost the link). The cm93 charts can then be corrected using GE2KAP. It is time consuming. I found that for West Coast of the Baja Peninsula they are mostly accurate. I have not checked the rest of the coast yet.

Re: Mexico Charts for OpenCPN

Re-instating this thread with the same need. I followed above recommendations without any success.

iNavX can use Blue Latitude Press for $39.99, iSailor has Mexico charts for $6.99 (don't know the source). Is it possible to use either of them or some similar charts from the same sources with OpenCPN?

Expect Blue Latitude added to the oeRNC sets - licensed raster charts for OpenCPN - soon.
oeRNC will be getting available end of next week or the week after.
We wall start with Explorer Charts and Imray.

Thanks Hubert. This is very good to know. Is there a page or any reference we can track? At a quick glance, I couldn't see anything on OpenCPN website.
