Admiralty Digital Charts - Updating Updates to all Admiralty digital charts are available free of charge over the internet There are several different options that suit different types of users.
Admiralty offers all of these update methods free of charge to let the user select the most convenient for their situation. This includes the ability to download and burn your own copies of Admiralty base and update disks. The labels can be downloaded and adhered to disks for ease of self service.
By downloading your updates via the internet you are free to move these to an ECDIS using which ever media you see fit. For some this may be using USB data drives or alike and choose not to keep selection of physical media such as disks. Downloading your own media when required means that the mariner can take full control over what they choose to consume, and how they move and store this data.
