Support for OpenSeaMaps

Postby harry-th » Mon Aug 03, 2015 9:24 pm

It would be perfect if Pathaway would support the OpenSeaMaps format.
There is an APP for iphone supporting those webmaps but you can only see where you are and thats it.
This feature and the Pathaway navigation capabilities would be a perfect match for yacht sailing (in addition to traditional paper maps of course :D )
Since OpenSeaMaps is a sub project of OpenStreetMaps it would hopefully be no huge task to add support for those maps.

I would be very happy to see this feature in one of the next releases

Thanks in Advance to the development team

Best Regards

Harald

Support for OpenSeaMaps is a priority and will be added in the near future. Thanks for the suggestion.

Hi Scott,
since I am planning for my next sailing trip I would like to ask if there is a chance to get the Open Sea Maps support added till end of September 2016?

Thanks in Advance

Best Regards

Harald

We won't have direct support by then, but PathAway Express or PRO can render KAP/BSB format directly via the Custom Maps feature. OpenSeaMap offers KAP chart download. The maps can be imported via Maps-Import command, or by copying to the PathAway folder on internal memory or external SD Card.
