I just had a look at your blog, you got a nice OpenCPN screenshot there. It appears that you are using BSB charts however, when you want the NOAA vector charts as per the ENC S-57 standard (better detail when zoomed)?

I'm running it on my Ubuntu 32 bit system, it's not compatible with 64bit. I like it, just need to learn how to use it!

A Little Guidance

I am not very literate with the tech side of all this and if there is a better location to pose this question, please let me know. I've downloaded program, have charted a route, and it works great. I then try to download route to my Garmin 76. The download/export screen shows up on computer, but I don't see the route on my 76. I have 76 set for NMEA and I have it plugged into computer with the 76 cable that came with purchase. Sorry for basic question. What am I doing wrong?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Export via GPX Out, then upload the file to your Garmin using the Garmin software package.

Help a noob with NMEA, OpenCPN, Garmin, Raymarine
