whapity...
The inbound help function in OCPN, menu "about" e.g. the "?" or: Chart Installation | Official OpenCPN Homepage will describe how you install/copy your charts so they can be detected by OCPN.
Good luck
Håkan

Re: Charts not loading-Help

What did you miss in the manual?

Put your files into a directory called ...\BR_RNC (for example)
Then
- go to Options (the wrench symbol)
- Charts
- Chart Files
- add directory (right hand)
- add your directory ......\BR_RNC
- and check "Force full database update" (below)
- Apply

And please study the manual. Will give you a lot of ideas and insights and you will be able to use OCPN to it's full extend.
