C-Map NT C-cards for British Columbia

New-to-me 2002 Nordic Tug 37 has a Raymarine 631 chartplotter. I plan to use Coastal Explorer as primary chartplotter, but would like to have chart cards for the 631 as backup.

Currently have: NA-C801 Dixon Entrance to Icy Bay (covers SE Alaska). NA-C701 Olympia to Port Neville (also described on eBay as Olympia to Lasqueti Island). NA-C621.5 Puget Sound to Cracroft Island. Strange overlap...

Have seen on eBay NA-C705 Banks Island to Sumner Strait - which would not cover all of the north coast of BC, and yet goes up through a good part of SE AK.

I have not been able to find a chart card catalog which lists the C-Map NT or NT+ cards and what they cover. Does anyone know what NT or NT+ card(s) would cover BC from Port Neville up to Prince Rupert? Anyone have one lying around that they no longer need?

Does this work?
It's entire West Coast of BC

Some years ago I filled in some blanks at Captains Charts in Seattle. Fast and they burn them right there. We've got all of them from Mexico to Icy Strait. Call and they will ship. When I get to our vessel in a few days I will forward you missing info but I'd guess Captains could do same.

Congrats on NT.

Thanks, but if I understand correctly the ~14 year old Ray 631 will not handle the Max chart cards.

I did find two more cards which could give me coverage of BC.

Get hold of Jeppesen, they do the Cmap cards. I just updated my Standard Horizon. If I recall correctly, you get a year's subscription and they send the updates as they are published. They will tell you if they can help you.

The NT+ cards are available through Jeppesen as noted above by Xsbank, I picked up 2 more cards a few months back to cover the blank spots on our trip. However, after using the $50 version Navionics app for the IPAD and another adapter cord to hdmi, we now use the iPad for primary and Raymarine for secondary.

Best of luck on your new boat, get out there and use it!
