eCharts.Settings.ini

The eCharts.Settings.ini file contains NAVBLUE Charts+ Windows low level settings that cannot be updated through content packages via EFBConfiguration.xml. You will be able to locate the file in  C:\Program Files\Navtech\Navtech Charts on an 32 bit system and C:\Program Files (x86)\Navtech\Navtech Charts on a 64 bit systems.
