4) Send you original Chart Card to us
Please let us know either by e-mail, phone or note as to whether you require a chart update or exchange. If it is an exchange then we need to know the new chart area code and your new chart plotter make and model to be sure you have ordered the correct chart card format.
We recommend using a tracked and insured form of post or courier service. Please pack the chart securely and not simply in a basic letter envelope. In the past we've had envelopes arrive in the post without chart cards which have been ripped out and eaten by the postal sorting machines and lost forever!
Appreciably you will understand we cannot offer updates or exchanges if your original chart card does not arrive with us.
Please send your old card to our address as below:
PRS Communications Ltd

5) Order Processing & Warranty
Your original chart card must be in working condition to be able to be updated or exchanged, if it is not in a serviceable condition when we insert it in our chart programmer we will advise accordingly.
In most instances you will receive the updated or exchanged area chart area back on the same chart card that you sent to us. The returned chart card is guaranteed by C-MAP for 12 months from the invoice date.
In the unlikely event of a warranty issue faulty chart cards are usually returned to C-MAP in Italy for attention at customers cost. C-MAP will then usually return a servicable chart card directly to the customers address, carriage paid.
If a different chart card format or chart card memory size is required as part of the update or exchange process, this is included in the price.
