Upcoming Product Changes

May 17, 2016

PolarView 3.0 is being readied for release in the near future. The next version will bring changes to product licensing, and these are the changes we hope you’ll like.

PolarView will be free to install and use, and that includes chart viewer, route and waypoint planning, live navigation, AIS, NMEA instruments, GRIB display and more.

To access optional online services, such as chart, GRIB and POI downloads, users will need an account and a subscription.

In preparation for upcoming changes current order page has been taken offline. More information will be posted on this blog and support forums in the near future. Stay tuned!


ChartWorld orders unavailable

December 17, 2013

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 support@chartworld.com

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.
