Latest (last?) Navonics Gold 28 XG - size in GB?

Anyone have this beastie and can tell me it's size?

simply because the issue of this "chart" I have on my plotter doesn't show the likes of Loch Lomond etc.

I have just been perusing the Navonics site, asnd the latest edition seems to show pretty much all the places I go with the Rib that are a nice shade of browny yellow on my current chart.

If you have a relatively new copy, could you tell me how big the SD card / file(s) is(are)? Simply because my ageing plotter can only hack 2Gig of an SD card and there's not a huge amount of space on my current card.... It would be daft to spend the cash to find it's not going to talk to the machine!

...and if I want to upgrade the chart to the new "Navonics+" to show Lomond etc I'm going to have to do it soon whilwe someone still has the Gold series in stock or I'm looking at a new plotter to run the new type of charts on!

Thanks,

Sorry I can't help you out with your main question (and not about to thread hijack !) but am interested to hear about the new charts u mention. I'm about make a similar purchase but thought the navionics + (sd adapter and micro sd card) Large and Small charts were just the same as the 'old' Gold charts just with new added benefits like 1yr of updates, sonar chart etc. I'll keep watching as the replies come in.

Cheers

Navionics are helpful to the extent they will load latest data onto a 2gb card on request if its physically possible

So has anyone managed it or got the latest / last version of the Gold charts?

Pilotwillie,

Gold | Navionics

Scroll down and there is a link to an interactive map that shows what it covers. - Even the F&C canal! (which about 9 months ago was simply a blue line through the central belt with no info at all.



Hee hee. this could end up being the most expensive chart upgrade yet- just ad new plotter!

Actuially, joking aside, I have been half toying with looking for an old NMEA2K plotter to use as an engine data centre. THis might be the kick start the project needs!

FYI - I bought the latest 28XG chart at the London Boat show this year and it is definitely on a 2Gb card.

It's a pity this didn't come up earlier as you could haver tried it out in Easdale last week.

Trevor,

Awesome, thanks. That's a new plotter's worth to add to the new toobs fund!

Don't rub it in - I never made it!



So, next Q. Any of you Ribnet commercial types got a last level 28XG on an SD card with a Ribnet discount?

I ended up getting the West coast platinum + card, on a 4gb micro card. Navionics were doing 20% off last month and along with an 'internet' price it was not much more than a Gold (or Navionics +) card. Still to flash it up, in fact, still to mount my plotter !!!
