Marine Recorder version 5

Marine Recorder version 5 is available for free download using the links below. System requirements are detailed in the Marine Recorder user manual (5.8MB). The install files for older versions are in the Marine Recorder archive.

Upgrading​

If you are upgrading from version 3.x, you must do a FULL install of version 5. This is because version 5 uses a runtime version of Access 2003, whilst version 3 used Access 97. Once the new version is installed you will be presented with options for upgrading data from version 3.

Important:

  • All existing data volumes (NBNDATA.MDB) will automatically upgrade when used for the first time in version 5.
  • All elements of Marine Recorder (e.g. snapshot, merge tool, etc.) must be upgraded to version 5 at the same time.
