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, but also the chart software. We recommend our chart finder to help you select the right electronic chart without any headaches. To chart finder >> Learn more about Electronic 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.
