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

Make sure the program has the comms set to the right port.

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?

|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)?|

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!
