If you simply want to use it to build routes and not for onboard navigation , try using navionics navplanner software, think it cost me about £120 and includes a usb card reader to plug your chart into.

I also use NavPlanner, it's not bad. Be aware though that Navionics cards are apparently self-erasing if you do the wrong thing with them - i.e. try to copy/read them on a PC. NavPlanner has a special reader to get around that issue.

Just got my NavPlanner today and hv been playing with it all evening . Nice piece of kit. Navionics do a deal if you trade in your old card. I sent back the G25 and received the NavPlanner and 28G which covers all UK and Ireland.

Navionics 28G

Agreed Andre

28G is a brilliant map and very good value.
