AHS Charts

The settings here are for users with S-63 charts from the Australian Hydrographic Service (AHS). If you are using AHS charts, you can enable checks to occasional see if you have any chart updates. When chart updates are available, you can download them directly using this automatic download feature.

As with other S-63 chart sources, you will need to register your S-63 User Permit and provide it to your chart provider for them to create your chart permits. Please see Settings / S-63 Charts / Help for more information.

Downloading the AHS chart files does not require an account with AHS. However to use the AHS charts, you must install valid S-63 chart permits. Note that you install your permit files in the Files tab, using the normal import methods.

Downloads for base charts and updates from AHS can be quite large. Base charts may be over 200MB. Updates may be up to 50MB, depending on how many updates have been produced.

Recommended best practice is to only update your charts when you have a chance to validate the updates are correct.
