If using Internet Explorer 10 you may need to view the course in Compatibility Mode (go to the help section in the course to see how).

You will need to switch the pop-up blocker off in your web browser (go to the help section in the course to see how).

In older versions of the pack, instaed of a chartplotter download (that is compatible with Mac) there is a Chart Plotter CD. This Chartplotter CD does not work on MAC. This has very little impact on the course itself.
