I really don't know what you mean by "a bunch of out lines" or "world map to display", sorry. After you install OpenCPN
, you should see just a base chart, covering the whole world. It should look like what you see on the last picture at Using OpenCPN for the First Time | Official OpenCPN Homepage
You of course want some real charts to be able to use the program for real navigation
. There are many ways to get them, but for you the easiest one probably is to download and install the Chart Downloader plugin from PlugIns | Official OpenCPN Homepage
, enable it in the Toolbox and make it download the free NOAA charts for the areas of your interest for you.
And please, keep reading the manual, all this is covered there in detail and with pictures.
