Opencpn chart renewal

I have some oeSenc vector charts which I need to renew, as their due date is September 2022. Any idea of how to go about it? In O-charts web page I can´t find the way to renew.?????

Thanks

“Your charts expire after a year from the purchase date. After expiration, charts will keep working on your device but you cannot request updates for them any longer.”

On the o-charts web page select "shop" then sign in to your account.
From there open "my oeSENC/oeRNC charts". Scroll down and the update option will be enabled for chart purchases < 12 months old.
Anything older than that will have expired (but still work) and will have to be purchased again for the updated versions.

Just license the charts again like as a new purchase. There is no option to renew.
In the beginning of o-charts it did exist for some chart sets as the licensing costs were lower for updates. The licensors have eliminated that option, so this does not make sense anymore.

But the OP says he has 6 months validity left for his charts! I think he wants to update now as he doesn't need to buy more charts yet unless he will be out of internet access for more than half a year.

For an update - requires OpenCPN 5.6 and the o-charts plug-in as well - the steps documented here:

Hi... But is the procedure for updating Opencpn to 5.6 explained anywhere? I´ve looked and looked...

Re: Opencpn chart renewal

Which Operating System you are on?
For Windows and macOS just download OpenCPN and install.
