New technology creates new problems. Some boaters in Canada have a problem since they can't obtain legal electronics maps for certain populair sailing areas. The companies involved "are currently in some intense negotiations hope an agreement will be in place soon."

"Most boaters use electronic navigation equipment from two major companies: C-Map and Navionics. In January, Ottawa warned about the illegality of electronic maps from these companies detailing Canadian waters."
