Delius Klasing - Set 21: German Northseacoast 1 - Hamburg to Sylt incl. Helgoland
German coastlines, Northsea from Hamburg to Sylt incl. Helgoland
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.
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.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com 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 Fugawi.com 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 Fugawi Marine 5... You may use the Fugawi Chart Quilter app (installed alongside Fugawi Marine 5) to select this chart collection's folder and then quilt the entire collection together into a seamless all-scales chart. It takes considerable time to quilt a large raster chart collection but, after that, transitioning from one chart area to another is trivial.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 ( email@example.com ) or PathAway ( support forum) for issues centered on the features and functions of those charting apps; MacENC.com and GPSNavX.com also have help materials on their web site and you may email them for technical support as well.
