The whole process to install our Marine Navigator charts has been simplified.. the best way is look at the screenshots below.
It's important to have 2.1.14 or newer version of Mr Koenigs' app .. Get it HERE
Estimated times involved.
1. Pay using shopping cart, and receive receipt on tablet, write down one unlock code: 5 mins
2. Download the chartset direct to the tablet: 5mins- 20mins ...Depends on your broadband speed.
3. Import charts into app and activate: 10-30 mins.. Depends on size of chart set & speed of machine
Whole process 20-60 mins odd if you have broadband. Internet not required once the charts are activated and working
Firstly: Pay on shopping cart, collect receipt email on target tablet, and then download chart set. (Important note: The email address you put in the shopping cart is the one the download/unlock receipt will be sent to automatically. It will appear to come from VisitMyHarbour -Cart generated-No Reply. Check your spam box if you don't get it within 5 mins.)
The receipt email from the cart looks like this:
Note 2 unlock codes, and download link for the charts. Download chart set. Save this email carefully. Write down carefully the first unlock code, you'll need it shortly.
Short video shows the import and activation process.
Want nice clear step by step pictures ?
OK let's go... Start Marine Navigator
Don't see the chartset where it should be above ? CLICK HERE
This step can take a few minutes.
At this stage you are "pointing" the app at the chart set
If you don't see this box, but instead the app generates an email..CLICK HERE
Type in the unlock code you wrote down earlier. Submit.
After the stage above, charts are unlocked... use the "back" button to return to app main screen. Zoom in to see charts.
What could go wrong ??? THIS:
We've seen recently that some internet service providers have our activation server marked down as "Adult Content". It is nothing of the sort, simply an activation server. If you get some message about "Wrong server response code 300".. it's probably because your service provider has marked the server as "Adult Content"
Easy way to check, try the link below:
If you get a picture of Cowes chain ferry, it's working OK. If you get blocked by your provider... GIVE THEM HELL
See coverage areas and buy.. you'll be up and running quickly
