PC Software

I need some PC planning type software.
I have a Navionics card reader and a UK and Ireland chip.
The official Navionics software does not support the Vista operating system and I am fed up waiting for it to be released.

Anybody got any ideas on what to use instead?
I dont need to transport a pre-planned route to a chip.

What about the Lowrance MapCreate software?

Alternatively downgrade to XP you will probably find your PC behaves better in general anyway

I run XP myself, but I had understood that vista could run protected sessions as if XP were the operating system, i.e. emulation.

Raymarine do a free route planning app that works with Navionics charts. Not sure if it runs on Vista however.

Might be worth having a look. See http://www.raymarine.co.uk/products/...ytech-planner/ for download information.
