Graphics

Very new to Open CPN - had it on an old laptop a few years back but recently downloaded it onto my macbook pro and graphics are really bad. Can't get any detail? What am I doing wrong? Images attached.....
(Open CPN - 4.2.0)

Thanks

Re: Graphics

Bovina,

what you see is just the default background chart.
So actually no chart for navigation.

Please go back to the manual and look for the chart chapters.
How to get charts, how to install, using the chart downloader perhaps...

Re: Graphics

Thank you bcn - I have had a look at the charts chapter and have downloaded the chart downloader. Are there any charts for Ireland/ Scotland area that I can download? I don;t see any on the lists provided?

Thanks again

Re: Graphics

For a very reasonable price you can get the complete set of raster UK and Ireland charts from visitmyharbour.com

Re: Graphics

Could you install Opencpn for Windows into Bootcamp or something and then use the Windows version of the charts?

Maybe others have done this? Perhaps ask Mike at VisitMyHarbor about that.
