Once completed, Charts+ Windows will connect to the Charts+ Information Manager to determine the availability of a new chart revision package for download.

Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Click the Revision Status Icon button.

The application status icon can vary, the following will explain what each one is:

 White database symbol: No data on the device.

  Green database symbol: Data on the device (enroute and/or charts & NAVBLUE guide information) is up-to-date.

 Red database symbol: Data on the device (enroute and/or charts & NAVBLUE guide information) is not up-to-date.


 This is the number of available packages to download. The number will be positioned in the top right of the application status icon (whatever the color of the icon).

Now the subscription information has been inputted the application will restart. After the restart, the status icon located at the top right hand corner of the enroute screen identifies the status of the data on the application. Underneath the application status icon, the version of the application is indicated (i.e."V 18.1.66"). 
You can see that since you have updated the user/subscriptions information you have a package that needs to be downloaded (this can take up to 30 seconds to appear), you can go ahead and tap the application status icon to access the available updates.

You can see that you have one package to download. This is perfectly normal for a first time installation. Clicking on the download button will start to download the package.

Interaction 1 Click the Download button.

If you change the username, device name, server name, subscription or company name you will need to download a new provisioning package as the existing data will be wiped during the migration process.



Number of packages available to download

The first package might be a large file size so please be patient when downloading it as it may take some time to download. 

Once the download begins a download status indicator will be shown. You will be able to pause resume and cancel the download. Do not quit the application until the download is complete. Once the download is complete the application will automatically restart.

An update interrupted by Internet connection problems will resume automatically when you reconnect, provided the application has not been closed using the upward swipe. You cannot use Charts+ while the package is being downloaded and deployed.

After application restart, the application enters in maintenance mode. The application in not usable during this time. See Administration to avoid unnecessary delay during this step.
