"The card has poor coverage of the German inland waterways. The maps worked well until we reached Lübeck, comming from the Baltic sea. However no information about Elbe-Lübeck, Elbe-Seiten, Mitteland, Dortmund-Ems and Wesel-Datteln kanals were shown. Only when we came a couple of kilometers from the Rhein the card started to show information again. It included maps for the Rhein and the Maas at least up to Roermond were we put the boat up for the winter."

"Product is simple so; no discussion about satisfaction. But my critisim is on your delivery policy. I have ordered this product to be delivered to out of EU. Therefore before approving the order, you submited a secondary information with cost of delivery And time following your communications with UPS. UPS is a well known worldwide, well experienced company. They should have warned you and me on additional duty and time for customs clearance. I have paid additional 25 Euro. If I knew it at the beginning my puchase decision might be different."

As well as the area you want the chart to represent, the electronic chart must also be compatible with your chartplotter. To be able to use an electronic chart with a chartplotter, not only must the memory card type be compatible (Compact Flash, Micro SD, SD, C-Card Black or Orange), but also the chart's software. We recommend our chart finder to help you select the right electronic chart without any headaches. To chart finder >> Learn more about Electronic Sea Charts...

Electronic Sea Charts

- Which chart is the right one for my chart plotter? -

Digital nautical charts are usually so-called vector charts, which means that chart sections can be enlarged or reduced and detailed information is displayed depending on the zoom level. The best known manufacturers of electronic nautical charts are Navionics and C-Map. Both manufacturers use different types of memory cards and different software systems. Not every card fits every chartplotter. Get an overview of the different sea charts.

What types of memory card are available for electronic sea charts?

Electronic sea charts are available in 4 or 6 different memory card formats.

1. Compact Flash charts (CF) from Navionics             

Compact Flash sea chart

2. Micro-SD / SD sea charts from Navionics

Micro SD / SD cards from Navico

3. C-Card sea charts from C-MAP

C-Card sea charts from C-Map

4. Micro-SD / SD sea charts from C-Map

While the Navionics Compact Flash and C-MAP charts are used in older chart plotters, modern multifunction displays usually use micro-SD cards to display electronic charts.

Which sea chart does my plotter support?

Depending on the manufacturer of your chartplotter, different chart systems are supported, although Navionics nautical chart support has become standard with many manufacturers. Please note that there may be differences in compatibility depending on the plotter model. In general, the following compatibilities apply:


Raymarine chartplotters support Navionics nautical charts and C-MAP 4D sec charts. 


Navico chart plotters, i.e. Simrad, B&G and Lowrance chart plotters, support Navionics nautical charts and C-MAP N+ charts.


Only Garmin blueChart charts are supported by Garmin chartplotters. 

For detailed compatibility checks for different plotter models, we recommend using our chart finder.
