    Electronic charts

    Hi I am looking for electronic charts for the lap top. I have seen one that displays the wrecks and when you click on the wreck symbol it gives some more information. I have tried googling but must be using the wrong search terms as i can not find any pc based charts.

    Rebreathers are like women; they pretend to love you, whilst taking all your money and trying to kill you.

    Depending on the level of detail you need:

    https://www.wrecksite.eu/Wrecksite.aspx

    Has charts and full details of the wrecks, but there is a subscription.

    If it's just free but decent chart browsing you're after, the Navionics stuff linked below is great, although I don't expect you'll get the wreck pop-up info. (I'd also point you at wrecksite.eu for that).

    Not specifically looking for free. I want something that shows tidal flow so that I can work out slack water times.

    Check out the options here https://www.visitmyharbour.com/
    I bought Unified Charts, and quite impressed. I think (!) it has tidal flow information, but I'm not at home and so can't check.

    The main reason I went down the Navionics route was needing something which works on a chartplotter (and I preferred it to C-Map; I can't comment on Garmin although they now own Navionics). The only (paid) option I found for interacting with the Navionics card on a PC came from Navigation Planner (link below), which definitely *can* have tidal arrows. Whatever, I'd be a bit careful about using these: whilst you can fill your screen full of tidal arrows, I believe they are only based on the nearest reference point - I assume the chart diamonds - and so IMHO are best viewed more globally in nature. I've thus always seen fit to use decent dive guides etc as the primary source. As AM has suggested above you have other cheaper options if not needing to integrate with 'standard' boat electronics.

    http://www.navigationplanner.com/ (then follow the embedded link to see how the tidal stuff works. It wasn't the easiest prog to get up and running).

    Bellfield tide plotter seems to be the 'go to' place for the more simple tide height info, or Easytide if within the next week.

    I've used Bellfield for years but it doesn't do flow rates, just tide heights.
