Re: Transferring CMAP charts on memory stick to Card that can be read by Vulcan5 plot

As others have noted, most chart plotters cannot use the chart formats that are not copy protected and can be freely copied, such as CM93 which OpenCPN can use.


However the Navico family of chartplotters (Simrad, Lowrance, B & G) can use custom charts using the AT5 format. The MapCreator application can take an ESRI shapefle (commonly used for Geospatial applications) and create the AT5 charts.


You could theoretically convert CM93 charts to the AT5 format by converting them to the AT5 format either directly or indirectly using via a shapefile and MapCreator. (Theoretical means you would have to develop an application to perform the conversion!)


In addition Opensea Map have converted a number of charts to the AT5 format. Refer to https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/...e_Simrad_B%26G


Good luck...

AT5 is raster, isn't it?
