The German Hydrographic Office (BSH) releases new digital charts every January and June. With these, we have assembled a 2nd edition of the DKW German Bight 2009 which license holders can dowload for free (after logging in on your user account at 'download overview').

Some charts were revised totally with (among others) new depth images. Adjusted are among others the Eemsmond to Bremen, the Elbemond to Hamburg and the North-East channel to Kiel. These are the charts: D004, D005, D006, D0042_2, D042c, D044, D044a and D048a. Recommended for at least the Baltic Sea travellers.

After downloading and installing the charts, you need to update them with DKW Manager to implement the changes that were made before (among others D002). The update for the revised D004 chart will probably come out next week with a Notices to Mariners of the 1800 series.
