Information on product retirement

  • You may continue to run Fugawi Marine 5 on Windows 8.1 or Wndows 10 computers but you need to follow the instructions on how to set the Fugawi Marine 5.exe file to run permanently in Administrator Mode, otherwise software activation and other features will likely fail. 
  • License resets for the purpose of installing on replacement computers continues to be available at present, final cessation of license resets is pending. Customers requesting a license reset must email (not phone) to software@fugawi.com and provide their product key and serial code. We will not take phone requests for license resets due to security reasons. Manual software activation is no longer performed by phone either, only via email. If you have lost your product key and/or serial code expect a search for your license data to take up to 3 business days, no expediated reply service applies.
  • No upgrade path exists in the Fugawi product range, including the retired Fugawi Marine 5 software. We recommend searching the Internet for Windows based marine navigation or land navigation software; or, better yet, adopt iOS or Android navigation software for which Fugawi sells downloadable charts.
  • Fugawi Marine 5 no longers supports the Maptech SDK. Due to licensing restrictions we can no longer distribute the Maptech SDK. Customers who use older versions of the Fugawi Marien 5 software are advised to backup any downloaded installation files for their own personal use before upgrading to the final Fugawi Marien 5 version. Please note that BSB charts (Including Maptech) generally remain compatible with Fugawi Marine 5 but the software no longer uses the Maptech SDK to read the BSB charts; the consequence is that some variant BSB charts depending on the Maptech SDK are unable to import into Fugawi. If your charts are no longer supported in the final version of Fugawi, we cannot provide an earlier version.
