Had a similar problem,I have found that you need (ZRAYE86026 Raymarine)
Plus the Free version of Planner Version 6 (https://www.raymarine.com/raymarine/...590&Parent=145
to enable your computer to recognise the Navionics Charts.
Its obviously more than you require, but it is a means to and end.
There may well be an alternative that I am not aware of !
