    Before heading out on the open water, plan your voyage with HomePort — marine trip-planning software¹ that lets you plan and organize routes from the convenience of your computer.

    Use your existing BlueChart® preprogrammed card, or transfer the preloaded maps² directly from your chartplotter to an SD™ card. Then simply plug the card into your computer's card reader to start planning your voyage.

    Navigating waters with no visible landmarks or shallow shorelines can be a daunting task for even the most experienced navigator. With your existing BlueChart data together with HomePort on your computer, you’ll have the ability to view map details such as underwater hazards and hidden obstacles and plan a route to avoid them.

    HomePort also offers features such as depth profiles, distance and bearing measurements, and tidal predictions.

    Manage Your Data
    In addition to managing waypoints, routes and tracks, you can store information from past voyages right on your computer. HomePort will also help you create point-to-point routes, determine fuel usage and estimate your travel time for each leg of your route — saving you time and money.

    View Marine Charts
    It’s easy to browse and view chart detail on your computer screen and mark waypoints and other points of interest. When finished, send the data to an SD card or proprietary Garmin datacard to load into your compatible Garmin chartplotter or sounder.

    HomePort is compatible with BlueChart, BlueChart g2 and BlueChart g2 Vision navigation charts. It is currently only compatible with Windows® operating systems.

    ¹HomePort software does not include map data, and is only available in English.

    ²Inland Lakes software is not compatible with HomePort. If using a device preloaded with Inland Lakes software in conjunction with BlueChart g2 and g2 Vision pre-programmed cards, only the pre-programmed cards are compatible.


    •displays both fishing and navigational charts from BlueChart g2 Vision
    •allows user to measure distance and bearing on the charts
    •displays route/track depth profile
    •converts tracks into point-to-point routes (track to route conversion) and specifies the speed for each leg of the route
    •provides ETA and arrival times (for each leg) when you create routes
    •shows animated playback of data collected on device
    •calculates fuel consumption (based on fuel flow data provided by the user)
    •exports selected data to Google™ Earth
    •displays statistics and graphical information about tide stations, tidal streams and currents
    •displays grid lines to show latitude and longitude
    •allows you to manage waypoints, routes and tracks
    •allows you to view the map north-up, map-up or course-up
    •displays celestial information such as sunrise, sunset and moon phase
    •displays photos and point-of-interest detail
    •supports vector charts
    •includes worldwide basemap
    •allows multiple map views

    Note: HomePort is compatible with Windows® operating systems only. There are no Mac OS® versions at this time.

    Default Garmin Homeport

    The Homeport porgram installed and updated just fine. Thank you very much. What do I need to do to import a Garmin BlueChart img map file into the program? The world map doesn't have enough detail. I've downloaded the Bluechart VS007R file and would like to look at it on the Homeport program.

    Default Super

    For those like me searching for a method of exporting BlueChart maps to OziCE or TwoNav(in particular) : Unlike Mapsource this program prints vectors! when you print to pdf. Moreover, again unlike Mapsource, the area of map it prints is determined by your paper size, at your current zoom level. So, you set your paper size to 5meters x 5meters and it printers an entire geographic region in one go - to be imported into illustrator for further refinements and easy geo-referencing with "MapPublisher" plugin.

    THANKYOU!!

    If someone knows how to convert garmin .img map files directly to .shp or .vmp or other vector formats I would love it hear about it.

    It's very easy
    1: You can load the older maps like Pacific 2008.5 or Atlantic or Americas in to Mapsource and it will find them automatically for you ( these 3 maps cover the whole oceans)
    2: For the G2 just put the sd card in your card reader and homeport will find them, this must be a working G2 map hacked or original

    Enjoy
    Happy it sunny Thailand

    Why download from file sharing sites when you can always get the latest version of HomePort for free directly from Garmin?

    When v2.0.5.0 is available, you can then download it for free directly from here:

    Well, that's the URLs where HomePort itself checks for the updates.

    The reason I didn't published links directly to Garmin was of course to not draw attention from Garmin. The software is not for free download like MapSource or BaseCamp.
    Try this:

    homeport 2.04 doesn't install on my dell xps with windows 7. It only gets to 98% and then hangs for a long time finally giving the message
    "an error occurred during installation, microsoft.vc90.crt version 9.0.307.... public key token 1fc8b3b9a1e18e etc
    I have reinstalled the MS vis c++ redistributable but makes no difference.
    Does anyone have any ideas? I'd sure appreciate it.
