There was some discussion of this on another thread (USB GPS) but to avoid further thread drift, I'll start a new thread here.
I am currently using OpenCPN with CM93 charts and also Maptech (BSB4).
The Maptech charts are now 10 or more years old and I am looking to replace them with modern equivalents, covering the South of England (S of E) plus CIs and northern/western France.
I am aware of good deals for the following -
ARCS charts for the whole UK from Belfield (£70), and
AVCS charts for the whole UK from PolarView (£55).
However, neither of these cover France (in any detail) and, AFAIK, neither chart type is usable in OpenCPN.
Are there any chart 'deals' that will run on OpenCPN (except CM93), for the areas required?
What chart deals, for any plotter programme, cover S of E plus France (north and west) and which are recommended?
