I am pleased to announce that we are ready to expand test sales of our new charts for BC!
We still have some work to do on polishing up the chart store and an end-user license agreement, but we understand that many of you are getting ready to start cruising so we are making our new BC charts available to everyone who wants to buy them before all of that is finished.
We are offering two new chart products for British Columbia: one is in raster format and is the equivalent of PAC01, PAC02, and PAC03 from CHS and the other is in vector format and is the equivalent of PAC-A and PAC-B from CHS.
Each product sells for $99 and includes all of the charts from the equivalent CHS products as well as updates for one year. After one year, the charts may still be used but a warning that they are no longer being maintained will be displayed. Due to the low price, we will not be offering a discount for subsequent years.
These products can only be purchased via the chart store built into Coastal Explorer and are only delivered via the Internet. We are working on a way to copy them to an offline PC, but that is not ready yet so if you need them on a PC that cannot connect to the Internet, please don't buy them yet!
You may use the charts on all of your computers that have active Coastal Explorer licenses (up to three). However, unlike Coastal Explorer's license, the Rose Point Charts licenses are NOT transferrable to another person (for example, if you sell your boat and the PC along with it, the new owner will need to buy their own chart license).
There will be more terms in the full EULA but they are all the "normal" things you'd find in any software/data license.
To purchase these charts, follow these steps:
After installing the charts on your first PC, you can install them on other PCs that are online and activated with the same Product ID by using Main Menu > Licensing and Add Ons > Add-Ons which will show you a list of your Add-Ons. In that list, find the Rose Point Charts for British Columbia, Canada "Add-Ons" and use the Install button to download and install them on that PC.
Please contact Rose Point Support at 425-605-0985 or email@example.com if you need any help.
