Re: Help Getting Started

Click once in the OCPN chart window on a position where you have charts. Zoom in (+) and your charts for that location will be viewed. Place the boat symbol by - right click - "move boat here"
And I suppose you have studied the manual OpenCPN First Use | Official OpenCPN Homepage where all kinds of information can be found. There's a lot to read, really.
