Panbo editor, publisher & chief bottlewasher from 4/2005 until 8/2018, and now pleased to have Ben Stein as a very able publisher, webmaster, and editing colleague. Please don't regard him as an "expert"; he's getting quite old and thinks that "fadiddling fumble-putz" is a more accurate description.

    One glaring hole in Maptechs raster chart coverage is the Far East. It was an area covered by Softcharts. Maptech purchased Softcharts (& marineplanner.com) and then closed them down. I sure wish they would bring them back including the Photonavigator series.

    I looked carefully at the catalog when it arrived Saturday and promptly threw it out.
    I absolutely agree its guarantee is, for a mail order company in 2006, remarkably stringent and customer-UNfriendly.
    And, despite including some seemingly interesting (and seemingly new) products, the absence of technical information was very striking.
    I found nothing in the book to make me want to use consider them as a source.

    Aw, Richard, do you have some suggestions for better sources?
