LandLocked66c 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!

Idpnd 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)?

kwaltersmi Denise - Chuck's got the right method.

Step 1) Download the charts from NOAA. I like downloading by state best. Make a note of which folder the charts are saved to on your harddrive.

Step 2) Open said folder and unzip the files from NOAA. They should by default get unzipped into the same folder used for the original download.

Step 3) Click the "Wrench" tool on OpenCPN and then click the "Charts" tab.

Step 4) Within the charts tab, navigate to the folder on your harddrive where the charts were unzipped.

Step 5) Click "Add Selection"

Step 6) Click "Ok"

You should then see OpenCPN loading the charts.

Hope that helps!

I simply used the Charts tab and added the directory where I saved the charts that I downloaded from NOAA. Maybe I'm misunderstanding your question.

Good luck,
chuck.
