Now that Maptech has purchased the www.softcharts.com assets, will Maptech be offering the .geo/.nos format charts?

I also notice that marineplanner.com no longer works to buy and purchase charts. So I lost my $99 credit I had there.

Charts, etc.

Upon our aquisition of SoftCharts, we have decided to discontinue that product line. We offer similar (if not identical) product in our Digital ChartKits. We are in the midst of examining the inventory of SoftCharts and will be adding the few coverages and features that are lacking in the BSB/Digital ChartKit line up.

MarinePlanner.com will be getting an overhaul and expansion in the next few months. We have exciting plans for this web property. In the meanwhile, feel free to download whatever NOAA charts you need from Maptech's: www.FreeBoatingCharts.com.

It's been almost 4 months since this reply - is their any update? I'm particularly interested in the Softchart Region 450, the set of global planning charts. Neither Maptech nor anyone else has anything comparable unless you move to a C-Map or Navionics compatible application. The world chart that Maptech supplies does not provide anywhere near the detail for major passage planning.

Still Integrating, etc.

We are still in the process of integrating the SoftCharts into our product line. We are evaluating the Region 450 and we will re-issue it should there be sufficient interest, etc.
