    Considering all US charts are free, Canadian West Coast digital charts through Fisheries and Ocean cost a lot. $1200 for electronic, $525 for raster. Anyway around this?

    Hi Peter
    Navionic Vector charts for all of Canada are less than $300 last time I checked?
    If you are purchasing a plotter in Canada, generally the Canadian charts are included.
    Cheers
