Down loading charts from Open CPN

I am planning a one and half year voyage around the Pacific. We will leave beginning of May 17 from NZ with Pacific Island Cruising Association but from Vanuatu will my own way further to Philippines; Japan; Hawaii; Marqueses and via rest of French Polinesia back to NZ
I will use Open CPN on PC and have down loaded the NZ charts of the SW pacific and will also print them for paper back up. However this only covers a small part of my trip. I have downloaded the whole area via Navionics on my Ipad
However I would still like to get the rest also via Open CPN not in the least to be able to print them out as a paper back up
Any suggestions on how to do this ?6

Re: Down loading charts from Open CPN

As the fleet of foreign boats start arriving soon in NZ I would ask around for a copy of the charts to be put on a stick. AND don't forget about GE charts.... using GE2KAP pgm. Best thing in a long time.

Good luck

You could also use chart downloader but you'll likely want cm93
