    OxiExplorer is great...

    Look at OziExplorer. www.oziexplorer.com

    You can use many commercial charts, or, my favorite, create your own from Google Earth images. You can get very high resolution of specific areas you boat/hike/drive.

    ok my original post was deleted and I was banned as a spammer so I will just give you a list of the ones I know:

    CapTain Voyager v8 GPS, Noaa charts and AIS
    CEACT GPS, Heading, AIS, ENC and Raster charts, Sounder
    River Pro GPS, AIS
    Coastal Explorer (good choice Evergreen) GPS Ais charts and i think even sounder inputs
    Jeppesen not sure of product name but they are going to be at the work boat show in New Orleans and I was invited to check them out.

    The Jeppesen software sounds very promising since I have seen the Avionics charts they have been doing for years from working in the Avionics field a while back.

    Try checking out Digiboat's Software on Board package - it uses Cmaps so is limited but is powerful, flexible and cheap. http://digiboat.biz/

    Software

    There are only 2 good softwares out there for boating. Nobeltec Navigation from Jeppesen and Rose Point.

    I do this everyday for a living on luxury yachts and have tried them all.

    If you want a fool proof system go with a garmin stand alone system, furuno navnet 3d or a raymarine e-series

    I like 'Chart Navigator Pro' by Maptech. Simple easy to use interface, many advanced options, touchscreen friendly in cruise mode. This program accepts all standard raster and vector charts.

    I prefer to use vector charts as they are more dynamic and render better than raster charts. The charts I downloaded from NOAA.gov:

    http://ocsdata.ncd.noaa.gov/ChartSer.../jsp/index.jsp

    Sometimes it takes awhile because their server gets hit hard but I managed to get all the maps of all US waterways in a day.

    I also tried out maxsea but don't like it that much. Nice interface but a PITA to load new charts. I hate any software that has to unlock, convert, or do anything complicated to load a map. I like software I can point to a directory and it auto loads all maps without complaining. Like Maptech.

    We like Fugawi. PC based. Comes with US navigation. Ties into Navionics for internatonal charts.

    Nobeltec Navigation
    I work on Super and Megayachts installing monitoring software, and Nobeltec is the only thing I've ever seen actually in use besides paper. It's like Furuno for Radars or Nauticomp or VEI for monitors. There is no other.

    anybody whom did not suggest sea clear --- steer clear of. seaclear uses the noaa maps which are the only legal maps. garmin blue water screen of death has been recalled. a it is free b it is basically perfect and flawless.

    it will probably require comdisable.msi to turn off the hateful microsoft rat ball.

    seaclear is basically perfect. You can even add hand drawn pirate maps in addition to adding google earth pictues as maps as well.

    might be worth looking at seaPro - has worldwide coverage and good value charts. There is a demo downloadable from the website: www.euronav.co.uk
