Much has changed since then, with a move from a single mapping application to “lite” and advanced versions through to the recently updated Roam mapping application available today. Changes in web mapping […]

We have identified a problem with all print maps generated from Chart Roam.Â While the maps on the screen are displayed at the correct scale, when printed the scale is altered and on paper is not what was requested.Â The error applies to all map sizes and all print scales, to a greater or lesser extent.Â We would advise you to check any prints made from Chart Roam.
As a result we have temporarily disabled the print function in Chart Roam until we are able to implement a solution to the problem. Since the solution is related to third party software used within Digimap, we do not yet have a time-frame for resolution.Â As soon as we have further information we will post it here.
In the meantime, we suggest that prints of the HydroView Charts are best obtained by downloading the required chart from Marine Download and printing the required section using alternative desktop software such as PhotoShop.
Apologies for the inconvenience caused.
