VisitMyHarbour provides raster charts derived from Official British or SHOM charts and licensed by UKHO/SHOM.VMH has ChartSticks for OpenCPN. Please note, they’re compatible with Windows only; not Mac, Linux, Android, etc.

  • Portable between Windows laptops/desktops (inc Windows 8.1 and 10 Tablets) Use on multiple machines. Charts don’t expire.
  • Subsequent uploads with new editions (if required) are inexpensive, so there’s no excuse not to have up-to-date charts.
  • Charts work with OpenCPN (free) and PolarNavy (cheap) and Expedition.

Using a USB connection these charts are fast (only marginally slower than a fully installed system).
