Antares charts

Very Large scale wgs 84 electronic charts

Our charts

· The 693 charts cover anchorages and channels on the West Coast of Scotland

· They are generally at an effective scale of more than 10 times the official UKHO charts and show very much more detail.

· They have been produced by unqualified yachtsmen — there will be errors — beware!

· The charts are typically used in an iPad or Android tablet with its internal GPS.

· Each chart has some narrative about the location.

· A few charts focus on drying areas relevant mainly to shoal-draught boats and a very few depict seabed gradients, which are relevant when anchoring. More here

· We recommend that you run he charts in a free Memory-Map app, in which you can also run their ‘Marine’ charts (same as UKHO charts for all practical purposes) and OS Maps.

· You can now download direct to your devices with no further setting up.

· You may also run our charts on PCs, Macs, tablets and phones and with other apps. Those iPads, PCs, etc. without an internal GPS can work with a separate Bluetooth GPS.

· Before buying the charts you should look at the MAKING and USING tabs above.

· Once you have installed the charts the GUIDES & HELP tab will assist you in getting the most out of them
