I'm sure the answer is somewhere in the forum.
What I am looking to understand is how you go about setting your PC/notebook with chart plotting software
, electronic charts
, etc so that I can use it in addition to my boats garmin chartplotter
I guess I need chart ploting software
and I've seen reference to Opencpn
which I have downloaded. Maybe there are not for free alternatives and other open source options?
Next I guess I need some charts
to load into the PC? Where can I select and download the ones I want? Intially Greek Islands
, and the rest of the Mediteranean.
Are there open source free charts?
Finally I guess I need some kind of GPS
device to connect to, or download into my PC?
Any guidance appreciated.
