Displaying Coast Pilot Pages
The CAPN is equipped to display Coast Pilot pages included on Maptech BSB format chart CDs. Unfortunately, due to an oversight in their production, these Coast Pilot pages were omitted from the CAPN U.S. DVD set now included with The CAPN. These downloads can be used to add Coast Pilot pages to The CAPN for your area of interest. Once installed, to display a Coast Pilot page, right click on the chart, and choose 'Goto', 'Coast Pilot Page.' The corresponding page for the chart you are viewing will be displayed.
In order to access these pages easily, they have been broken into the following regions. Download the region (or regions) of your area of interest and they will be available in The CAPN.
