Chart-Topping DVD

Bookmark and Share

Maptech has released a DVD containing 2,300 NOAA nautical charts and 730 river charts, along with GPS navigation software. The software lets you create waypoints and routes on a computer, and if you hook your GPS up to an onboard laptop, your boat’s position will be displayed in real time. It also lets you print out route plans and chart segments. Charts are arranged by region and can be updated gratis by going to www.freeboatingcharts.com. Sure, you could download all these charts for free, but at only $50 this DVD will save you an awful lot of time. Maptech, 888-839-5551, www.maptech.com
