C-Map 4D

I thought in the past I was able to open a 2D version of a 4D C-Map Chart when using the non 4D version of Expedition.  Non 4D seems to run a bit faster without all of that extra data so it is what I normally use for routing etc..
I did however drill down expecting to have chart data but that was not to be the case.
So does a 4D C-Map also contain a 2D chart (so to speak) that will work in the non 4D version of Expedition.
Is this a question more for C-Map?

hmm,  I closed Expedition, Opened 4D to verify I had the chart I thought I did.  Switched back and now I don't seem to have that issue.  Maybe I just imagined I did.

Re: C-Map 4D

Skipper who asked me to troubleshoot this issue is still reporting he can't access the C-Maps he was able to prior to upgrading to 10.9.18.  He only upgraded the non-4D version.  In case that matters.  He is at sea now enroute to St Helena.  Bandwidth to download new version probably won't be available until maybe they make it to Columbia.  I can no longer reproduce the issue nor am I even positive I was able to at all.  
Prior to upgrade I suspect he was using the version that was available a year ago.  Was there any database change as part of the core upgrade that may make upgrading the 4D version mandatory to view charts in non-4D version ?  Just a thought.

Re: C-Map 4D

The non-4D version of Exp can't use any of the 4D charts.

So, if he is using the non-4D Exp and has 4D charts … that won't work.

Re: C-Map 4D

I'm not sure that you are looking at the same charts - NT+ charts require the NT+/PC planner application, and they are stored in different directories. I have never been able to see 4D based charts in the NT+ version.

This also begs the question, why are you buying charts for the US east coast from CMAP when better charts are available for free?
