    Any easy way to get this chart-set into HomePort? I have downloaded & unpacked the charts, installed & updated HomePort, and installed GMapTool. It looks like I may have to use GMapTool "Join" to create a single .img file and then copy that to a location where HomePort can see it? What happens to the tidal data - will that still be available?

    Any help appreciated..
    Thanks.

    Hi and thanks,
    I did find the Garmin bluechart atlantic which I'm hoping covers what I need.
    Anyway I downloaded and installed it correctly I think but with my older version of Mapsource it would open what appeared to be the whole chart of all of Europe pretty much, however Mapsource wasn't responding at all and I had to force a shutdown. This kept happening so I installed a newer version of Mapsource 6.16.3 and this now opens ok but isn't showing the maps. Would you have any advice?
    Thanks again.

    Best advice is to install HomePort for marine maps. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. MapSource is now discontinued and unsupported.

    Thanks for the reply, I didn't see it in time but I actually persevered with Mapsource and somehow the maps are now appearing OK. I'm not sure if I actually managed to unlock them or not but anyway I have them now!
    Thanks again for the advice.
