About Delius Klasing nautical charts

These fantastic high colour raster charts for the leisure market have been produced by Delius Klasing Verlag GmbH to be used by the yachtsmen who love an easy, precise set of charts that can be used on their supported device. Licensed by the Hydrographic Offices when available, they are using most precise data.

The Inland Water Charts are added with the following additional information:

  • written notices and warnings, speed limits
  • harbours, marinas and piers incl. infrastructure informations, phone-numbers
  • photos for orientation
  • informations about Points of Interests and sight seeing
  • locks with VHF-channels and operating times
  • bridges and their clearance height

All depth and heights are displayed in meter and the colour graduation and fine contours make them easy to use. We used light blue for the depth below 5 meter (15ft), a clear to see red for the 2 meter line (6ft) and blue for the depth below 2 meter (6ft). Please be aware that for some chart sets , especially the Scandinavian ones, the colour code defines different depths, such as light blue and blue for depth under 6 (18ft) meter and under 3 (9ft) meter, red is now the 3 meter (9ft) line.

The buoys are clearly visible due to the coloured and contrasting symbols and make for a quick interpretation of the data at any time, where as an overview is achieved by the passage charts.

The red numbers for waypoints have coordinates based on WSG 84, which enables you to compare with the GPS instruments using the waypoint list included in the printed Delius Klasing-Sportbootkarten chart set.

The specially chosen larger scalings make for secure navigation around the main waterways and close to the coastline and there are detailed harbour plans in largest scales.

With these paperless charts on your device you can zoom in and out through the different scaling for a vector like experience which is similar to your familiar raster charts, so you have all the benefits of the paper charts in a less cumbersome format. For total piece of mind and comfort use both combined: the paper charts and the same digital chart with exactly the same picture and layout.

OpenCPN for Windows, MacOS, Linux
(see notes for OpenCPN for Android at the bottom of this page)

Adapt the instructions below for your operating system. Slight differences are present in how to download charts in Windows vs. MacOS vs Linux

  1. If necessary, update OpenCPN to at least verison, 4.8.4 being the required minimum version.

  2. Download the Fugawi plugin from the OpenCPN plugins page at:

  3. Install the Fugawi plugin, clicking Continue and accepting default install options.

    Tip #1: On MacOS, press the Apple command key while right-clicking the Fugawi plugin package / installer; and from the right-click context menu, select Open. This should avoid MacOS Gatekeeper from disabling this web downloaded app.
    Tip #2: On Windows, a typical anti-malware security utility may need to be adjusted to un-quarantine the plugin installer and/or permit installation of the plugin. Consult the security utility's Help resources for more information.
    Tip #3: On Linux systems, a get-app command line may be needed for installation. See the generalized Linux plugin help page.

  4. Launch OpenCPN.

  5. Find the Plugins section...

    • Windows OpenCPN full menu path is ToolsOptions | Plugins (or click the Options toolbar icon).

    • MacOS OpenCPN menu is OpenCPN | Preferences | Plugins

      OpenCPN Plugin for Fugawi

  6. Select the Fugawi plugin from the list of all plugins and click the Enable button.
    The button changes to Disable in case you need to do OpenCPN plugin troubleshooting in the future.

  7. Click the Charts section and select the Fugawi Charts tab.

    Fugawi Charts tab of OpenCPN tools charts menu

  8. Click the Refresh Chart List button.

  9. When prompted, login with your email + password and click OK.

  10. A list of all chart subscriptions appears, both new / unactivated and previously downloaded. Select a desired chart subscription sub-titled as Status: Ready for Activation Request.

  11. Click the Activate Selected Chartset button.

  12. Answer Yes to the prompt confirming activation. Click OK after the activation succeeds.

  13. Click the Install Selected Chartset button.

  14. When prompted, browse to and select any folder on your hard drive used as a general repository of charts. Your hard drive's folder path names will vary.
    The browsing dialog has an option to create a new parent folder for all your charts, if you need it.

    In the example illustration below, a Windows computer has a general folder for all OpenCPN charts and, beneath it, a few sub-folders of various chartsets. In Windows OpenCPN, the OpenCPN charts parent folder is selected with a click of the Select Folder button; on MacOS OpenCPN the selection is completed with the Open button.


  15. Wait as the chart files download. Click OK when complete.

  16. From the Chart Files tab, select the folder containing the downloaded chart files. The folders are automatically named according to the Fugawi product code -- which you should not edit. However, you may nest a given Fugawi chart folder under another sub-folder with an appropriate name describing the geographic area of the chart product. 

  17. Click Apply. The various charts in the chartset are analyzed by OpenCPN and prepared for a mutli-scale quilted view. This usually takes several seconds, possibly longer depending on the number of chart files,

  18. The world base map view represents the new collection of charts with thin red boundaries rectangles / polygons. Pan and zoom as necessary to view the quilted charts at a desirable scale. See the section below for tips on how to get the best view of the charts.


Basics about viewing the charts

An initial chart chosen by OpenCPN appears: it may be a world basemap or a previously viewed chart. Zoom in / out, pan around as desired. If the initial view is red outline rectangles only, use the menu Shift to Smaller Scale Chart (also invoked by the F8 function key) to see the actual chart graphics.

Tip #4 : Depending a chartset's properties, you may find it helpful to increase or decrease how soon a fine detailed local scale chart visually emerges out of a larger area yet lower detail chart. Do this in Tools (Preferences in MacOS) | Display | Advanced | Chart Zoom / Scale Weighting. Or simply press the keyboard letter D to bring the slider control over the current chart. Experiment with the slider setting for each chartset to get what you perceive as the best balance of clarity versus density of chart objects.
OpenCPN display advanced settings for chart viewing, particularly scale weighting

Tip #5: The "Chart Piano" control (keyboard toggle: CTRL + B or Apple-logo + B), a thin horizontal strip of buttons representing individual charts along the lower border of screen, may be used for:

  • Click selecting a single chart out of the larger collection, with the single chart centered by default.
  • Mouse hovering over a button to examine the corresponding chart's informaton: drive storage path, scale ratio, projection 


OpenCPN for Android

The look and operational features of OpenCPN are remarkably similar across the platforms of Android and computer-based OpenCPN installations. However, installing both the OpenCPN software and the Fugawi Charts plugin is line with all typical apps from the Google Play Store. Take note of these points:

  • The authentic OpenCPN for Android in the Google Play Store has author name "Dave Register" and has a modest price for purchase. Buy and install this first using the Play Store app on your Android device.
    Additional notes:
    • Fugawi technical support does not provide a walk-through on the basic consumer topic of buying and installing apps. Google has generalized Help references on buying and installing apps.
    • You may perform a side-install from a computer via USB cable but this is generally more complicated, so we recommend using the standard Google Play mechanism for buying, and downloading / installing the app.
    • Do not install free OpenCPN variants for Android because these are not compatible with the Fugawi Charts Plugin.
  • The Fugawi Charts Plugin for OpenCPN in the Google Play Store also has author name "Dave Register" and it is free. Install this companion app using the Play Store utility on your Android devce. The sequence is:
    1. In the Play Store's search box, enter the phrase "Fugawi Charts plugin" and examine the appropriate search result.
    2. On the Fugawi Charts Plugin store page, tap Install.
    3. Tap confirm what resources the plugin app has access to within your device.
    4. If prompted for payment information or a redeem code, tap Skip.
    5. Wait as the download / install proceeds.
    6. Tap Open.
    7. In the app that launches, tap Install Fugawi Charts Plugin.
    8. After several seconds, OpenCPN is launched with the plugin included. Just like OpenCPN on a computer, enter the Options menu | Plugins, find the Fugawi Charts plugin row and tap the Enable button.
      Tip: On a typical Android smartphone, the Plugins section may be hidden behind and to the right of other software controls and tabs. If you rotate the screen to wide landscape mode, the Plugins should become visible.


The remainder of instructions for downloading charts are the same as for a desktop OpenCPN experience, see above.

► For OpenCPN related questions, study the documentation manuals and/or OpenCPN forums.

► For help with chart selection, purchasing process, and downloads contact However, it is outside Fugawi's scope of support to offer assistance with OpenCPN display preferences, tool use, data transfers, hardware interfacing, regular navigation and planning operations of the software, etc.

MacENC and GPSNavX

  1. From click the NavX Download link. A DMG (disk image) file saves to the Mac's desktop or downloads folder. 
  2. Click the navx.dmg to mount and open it. Then click the NavX package to install the app, accepting all the defaults of the installer.

  3. In the Mac's Finder, click Applications | NavX.

  4. In NavX, click the Account button and enter your account's Email and Password. Click Save.

  5. Click the Activate Products... button.

  6. When prompted to indicate your charting software, select MacENC or GPSNavX -- which ever one you have.
  7. From the Product drop-down list, select a desried chart title. Then click the Activate button.

  8. Select a folder on the hard drive (preferably under Documents | Charts or similar) into which the chart files are to be saved.

    • Tip #1: As you browse down nested hard drive folders, use slow single clicks to navigate the folder structure; a fast double-click will force the app to select a folder you may not have intended.
    • Tip #2: Before committing to a target folder to hold the chart files, you may temporarily use Finder to navigate to Documents, click File | New Folder, name the folder as you like.
    • Important: Do not select a folder already containing a different chart collection's files. This Delius Klasing collection of files must be in its own unique folder -- unless you are updating this very same nv charts collection, in which case answer Yes to the confirmation prompt for replacing existing files.
  9. Confirm the activation of this product.

    • Note: Activating the chart files to this single computer means they are copy protected. Therefore, a simple copy / paste of files to a different computer will never allow successful use of the charts on that other computer.
  10. NavX lists each chart file as they download, one by one. If any download errors are listed, run the NavX app again and try the chart download again. Only failed file downloads will be attempted again.
  11. In the Finder, click Applications | MacENC or GPSNavX -- which ever one applies.
  12. In MacENC, click File | Chart Manager | Add Chart Folder... and browse to the download folder containing the charts.
    For GPSNavX, the final steps are similar except chart management is done under the Preferences menu.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What happens when a chart subscription expires? Do the charts disappear?
A: Whatever charts you downloaded stay resident in device memory / drive indefinitely available for planning, navigation, etc. The chart's subscription status matters only when you wish to download new chart updates, or when a device's memory is reset, or a new device comes into service; you may wish to renew your subscription or buy a new edition year of the same chart area in these cases. Occasionally, technical issues concerning low free memory, iOS updates, app updates, etc. may cause unexpected issues for retaining charts; in such a case, contact as the first source of consultation on resolving such issues.

Q: How do I transfer these charts to other devices or computers?
A: You do not transfer chart files from device to device, or hard drive to hard drive, not as such. What happens is you use a spare chart subscription to activate to a new target device / computer with its compatible charting app; just download a fresh copy of the chart files to that secondary device. If you are out of subscription range or have exceeded the normal 2 device / computer license limit, contact for your options.

Q: Do the chart files get backed up to a computer via USB synchronization? or to external drives?
A: No, the chart files are digital-rights locked to a specific device / computer. Charts do not backup and restore other than through a re-download via Internet connection to the web service.

Q: How often are the charts updated?
A: Usually a given chart collection is updated two or three times in the edition year. Sometimes another update is produced in the following year if no formal new edition is published in paper. Fugawi sends out emails to all chart subscribers when an update is ready. Update file wholly replace old files. Any corrections for charts are passed along to nv charts cartography team.

Q: If I update the charts (thereby deleting old versions) do my waypoints and routes get erased?
A: No, that is not a concern. Waypoints and routes are always stored quite apart from any chart even though they visually hover on top of chart graphics. Mind you, charting software always has export options for waypoints and routes, so you would do well to exporting archives of your data once in a while.

Q: The charts are not seamless; how do I transition from one chart to a chart in an adjacent geographic area?
A: For iNavX... What always works (but is not always convenient) is to return to the master charts list and look for the next chart over based on chart name and/or number. However, if an overview scale chart shows sub-charts as red rectangular outlines, tap on the rectangle to see if the sub-chart is offered along with other query data.
For OpenCPN... When charts download into OpenCPN they are processed in such a way that they may be viewed as a quilted chart array at all scales or viewed as individual charts..
For other software... Read the help menu materials provided by the software under the topic of "auto-loading" or "adjacent charts" or other similar phrases.

Q: How can I get advice and technical support?
A: Email for fast custom responses (Monday to Friday) providing expert support on chart purchase advice, subscription information, download help / error message resolution, and GPS accessories suggestions. We will refer you to iNavX ( or ) or PathAway ( support forum) for issues centered on the features and functions of those charting apps; and also have help materials on their web site and you may email or for technical support as well. OpenCPN has online User Guides with extensive information and a large user community for mutual assistance.
