The settings here are for users with S-63 charts from Marine Press Canada. When enabled, the charts will be downloaded and installed automatically. Checks will be made periodically to see if any of your charts have been updated. When chart updates are available, you can download them directly from Marine Press by pressing Update.
To use this feature, you need an account with Marine Press and to have registered your S-63 User Permit or your Extra User Permit. You must select which user permit is registered with Marine Press using the User Permit setting.
From time to time, you may wish to remove old update files in the Marine Press Charts. After deleting such files be sure to do an Update so SEAiq can download any parts of those files that might still have been needed.
This capability can be used for your initial chart download as well as for periodic updates.
You can see the status being updated as the download proceeds. When complete, a notification is given.
Keep in mind that chart updates can be quite large. You may want to wait until you are connected to a high speed internet connection before downloading updates for your charts. If there is a problem during the download, the update starts again from where it left off.
This may be useful when changing accounts to clear out old files. Also, we recommend doing this periodically to reduce the number of update files present on your device.
