Re: Real Computer Program to Use with Navionics

I haven't tried it myself, but since it doesn't have detailed Canadian charts, I will have to load them. From my understanding, there are two ways.

You can use the Scanned Maps feature in ExpertGPS to display digital
charts, USGS DRGs, or your own scanned paper maps. There is a procedure to prepare and geo-reference your maps for use within the program.

Also, it allows you to view street maps, topo maps, aerial photos, and nautical charts. It relies on various Internet map servers to provide these mapping services. You can override the default map services in ExpertGPS to access your own preferred map servers.

I just got around to looking at ExpertGPS, and the description on the
Web page is impressive. But how do you get NOAA charts into the program?
