Transferring Your OpenCPN charts to SEAiq Open
Many OpenCPN users have been using SEAiq Open because it is the only chart plotting
app for iPads that lets you use load your own charts. This is a step-by-step guide for
OpenCPN users on how to transfer the S-57 or CM93 charts you use with OpenCPN into
SEAiq Open. After completing these detailed instructions, you will have all your charts
available in SEAiq Open on your iPad.
Before getting started: if you are in USA waters, we recommend trying SEAiq Free, which
uses the vector charts that NOAA publishes for free. SEAiq Free (like SEAiq Open) is free to
evaluate, with an in-app purchase to unlock all of its features. SEAiq Open works great with
the NOAA charts, but SEAiq Free has special support for downloading NOAA charts and
keep them up to date.
The main difference between SEAiq Open and OpenCPN is that charts are loaded into
SEAiq Open using the Apple iTunes program and the iTunes File Sharing feature. iTunes
Files Sharing works best if you only transfer a few files, so you first have to put each of your
collections of charts into a Zip file and then copy that file onto your iPad. (A Zip file is just a
file that can contain any number of other files.)
To figure out which folder(s) you should transfer, run OpenCPN and go to settings by
pressing the wrench icon in the bar. Then go to the Charts tab. In the lower box you will see
the different sets of charts that you have loaded into OpenCPN, one per line. Go to each of
these folders on your laptop. For S-57 charts, look for the ENC_ROOT folder containing a
CATALOG.031 file (as well as folders of charts). For CM93 charts, look for the CM93 folder
containing files CM93ATTR.DIC and CM93OBJ.DIC (as well as folders of charts). If some of
your charts are raster (BSB) charts, you will not be able to use those with SEAiq Open since
it only supports vector-based charts.
To install the vector charts, you need to be able to create Zip files. If you are using an Apple
laptop, it has a built-in capability to create Zip files. If you have a Windows laptop we
recommend using free 7Zip (http://www.7-zip.org) utility.
Now you have the key pieces in place and can install the charts on SEAiq Open by following
these step-by-step instructions.
Make sure your laptop is connected to the internet.

Attach your iPad/iPhone to your computer with the white cable.
Run the iTunes application.

Search SEAiq

Select the iTunes Store on the left hand side of the window.

Search

Type "SEAiq Open" in "Search Store" in the right.
Install SEAiq Open on your iPad (or iPhone) for free.
SEAiq Open initially comes only with a base chart. This is a good time to spend
a moment trying it out. Press the Navigate tab and try moving around the world
using standard iPad gestures.
For each of your chart folders, you need to create a Zip file

Windows
If you have not done so already, download the free 7Zip
utiity http://www.7-zip.org and install it.
Go to the folder containing the the folder named
ENC_ROOT or CM93.
Right click on ENC_ROOT or CM93 folder.

Followers

Déconnexion

Select 7-Zip sub menu (if it is not there, then there may
have been a problem installing 7-Zip).

Abonnés (11)

Select Add to CM93.zip or Add to ENC_ROOT.zip option.
Wait for the Zip file to be created. This can take awhile.
When done compressing, you should now have a file
called ENC_ROOT.zip or CM93.zip.
MacOS
Select the folder named ENC_ROOT or CM93.

S'abonner

Select File from the bar at the top of the screen.
Select Compress "ENC_ROOT" or Compress "CM93"
(mid-way down the menu).
Wait for the Zip file to be created. This can take awhile.
When done compressing, you should now have a file
called ENC_ROOT.zip or CM93.zip.
IMPORTANT: You may want to rename the file if you are installing
multiple sets of charts because each Zip file you transfer to SEAiq
Open must have a different name. If you only use one set of charts,
this is not an issue.
Go back to the iTunes application.
Select your iPad/iPhone on the left side of the iTunes window.
Select the Apps item in the upper bar.
Scroll to the bottom of the window until you see the File Sharing section. In
iTunes on MacOS, the apps listed under Sync Apps scroll separately from
the window frame they are in. This can sometimes be confusing. If only the
list of apps is scrolling, then you may need to click on the area outside the
apps list.
Select SEAiq Open in the Apps section underneath File Sharing.
Press the Add... button.
Find the Zip file you want to install on this iPad/iPhone.
Press the Open button.
The small activity window at the top of the screen should show the file being
copied. Be sure to wait until the copy is complete before proceeding.
You should now see your file listed in the SEAiq Open Documents.
Return to SEAiq Open on your iPad
Press the Charts tab on the bottom of the display
Each of your Zip files should be listed along with information about how many
charts each contains. If not, press the Help button at the top of the Charts tab
and read the Troubleshooting section (toward the bottom).
Press the Navigation tab on the bottom of the display.
You can now explore your charts. Remember: only charts above 1:50,000 scale
are displayed until you purchase the upgrade.
If you are happy with SEAiq Open, you can purchase the upgrade so it will
display all of your charts and to unlock all of its features.
Make sure your iPad/iPhone is connected to the Internet.
Select the Store tab at the bottom of the window.
Press the Buy button.
Enter the purchase information.
After purchasing the button should read "Installed".
