We were just notified by ChartWorld that from January 1st, 2014 new orders of charts through PolarView NS built-in ordering system will no longer be possible. We expect that users with existing orders would be able to continue accessing updates for their charts. Please see attached message for details.
Update: we were notified by ChartWorld that the built in ordering capability cannot be restored. Existing users of built-in download will be able to continue downloading updates to their ChartWorld orders until July 2014.
For further information please contact ChartWorld directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Dear Polar Navy,
Unfortunately our bank’s credit card service provider discontinues the payments via API on very short terms. The bank offers a so called ‘Payment Page’ to which the customer (at least in our webshop) will be redirected to and where the payments take place. Alas, this cannot be used within your Polar View software. This means, that from January 1st your software will not be able to process credit card payments for ChartWorld’s charts.
We’re really sorry of not having been able to inform you earlier, but we received this information some days ago. We’re eagerly looking for an alternative solution which does prevent your software from being changed, but we’re not sure if such solution exists. Anyway, we cannot provide a solution until January 1st, so payments will not be successful anymore.

- Restore support for USACE inland charts
- Improved support for IENC (Inland) chart format
- Ability to save multiple routes or tracks in a single file
May 5, 2013
As of April 15, USACE stopped providing updates to S-57 chart data set. All inland updates are now provided only for the IENC 2.2 data. PolarView 1.9.7 has been released and addresses this issue. Users are advised to upgrade to most recent version of PolarView NS to restore USACE inland chart support.
Note that the new USACE chart set used different naming convention. These charts will not replace the original USACE charts that were previously installed. You should manually delete previously installed USACE charts (names beginning with “U35″) prior to downloading these charts.
