Hello
I am a new member, and I am having a problem reading/displaying my charts on the OpenCPN version 4.0.0 software, which download OK.
I added the charts to the program with out problems.
Problem is:
I can not read/display the charts with extension .CAP (BSB format)
I can read/display the charts with extension .KAP (BSB format)

Thanks for any help
Garry

Garry...
The .CAP charts are the encrypted BSB4 format, you need to have them properly installed and the respective plugin to use them.

Hello Pavel
I have the charts installed, because I can see the titles in the chart window.
Question: Where do I find the plugin you spoke about, and what is the name of plugin I am looking for.

Thanks

All the plugins are available from PlugIns | Official OpenCPN Homepage
