........... I am sure a good guide should point out that there is an upgraded version

Version 7.5 features include:

Includes Bloc Marine port services and Finnish Inland lakes
Includes data from Reeds Almanacs
Local charts for Croatia, Denmark, Faeroe Islands, Greenland, Iceland and Portugal
Updated coverage of Africa, Europe and the Middle East
Port services UK, Ireland, Sweden, Norway, Italy and Denmark
Chart-specific information, including chart name, number, scale, revision date, latest Notice to Mariners date
Trip and waypoint management function lets you transfer waypoints, routes and tracks between your GPS and your PC
Faithful representation of published official paper charts
Object-oriented cartography
Shaded depth contours
Intertidal zones
Spot soundings
Port plans
Navaids with view range and coverage
Tides, wrecks, restricted areas and anchorages


......... or that V7 could be heavily discounted ?

cos I don't get enough to give 25% away!! short of selling the kids shoes so I can subsidise your boating!

Believe me or not, it isn't the retailers who make marine stuff expensive.

That other lot you mentioned, not sure when you looked but we have been building a whole new section to yachtbits showing all the new small charts, with that the prices have come down further and we do actually work out cheaper thand them if you are buying more than one item. Please recheck our site, you might have been looking at an old page!

I think gArfie is, in his tactful way, suggesting you pay a trade membership fee to JK if you're going to advertise on the forum.

Translation

Directly translated Garf's post reads:

"can I advertise you to the bit about trade membership"

in other words Garf thinks it was an advert and is trying to direct you to the following parts of the site:

Paid subscriptions:
http://www.rib.net/forum/subscriptions.php

General posting guidelines:
Paid subscriptions

Trade guidelines:
Guidelines for commercial posting


If you are the "cheapest" place to buy these charts on the net then the £100 investment would soon be recouped from the increased no of purchases. I think Ribnet users are more likely to visit your site if you were upfront, admitted to being a trade member and paid the fee which supports the site.

Points Taken

hadn't even seen sub's page.

Do I earn credit towards it, if I provide technical advice that does link directly to a suggested sale!!?? for example interfacing of kit you've already bought elsewhere.
