I would like to buy a boating chart DVD. I think in these DVDs there are maps in BSB3 format. Do I have to use such maps with only maptech navigator software? Is map format open to develop another map reader program? Actually I would like to use such maps in my application. If there would be an activex component to read maps that would be highly appreciated.

Hi Ergin,

There are a number of Navigation software that will read BSB3 formatted charts, not just Maptech software.

If you are looking to get a software to be BSB3, BSB4, or BSB5 compatible, you can request that that software company contact us and obtain a Software Development Kit from us.
