SeaClear II vs Open CPN
For you folks that use a computer for chart plotting and navigation there seems to be two free chart readers available. SeaClear II reads raster charts and Open CPN reads both raster and ENC charts. For those not*familiar, both types of charts can be downloaded free from NOAA.*
I did not like the detail presented when using Open CPN with the ENC charts. In a related thread a couple of weeks ago, David M seems to agree.
For you folks that are familiar with these two programs, which do you like the best?
SeaClear II is a little difficult to set up, but there is help available via a SeaClear yahoo group. Open CPN has a dedicated sub forum under Navigation in the cruisersforum.
They both present raster charts pretty much the same way of course, but for routing and navigating which do you like the best and why?
Lastly, any body know of a free or really cheap good RNC reader/plotter.
