No, this has not been implemented in OpenCPN. There has from time to time been calls for this feature, but no wide spread demands, as far as I can recall
When you first get aquainted with vector charts it is a spontaneous reaction to miss this grid. That's the way I reacted, at least. But ..... what do you need a lat & long grid for? Your screen
is north/south - east/west reference in itself, and it is small compared to the size of a full paper chart. Your cursor position continuously display the lat & long, and right click "measure" is able to display course and distance from "anywhere to anywhere".
So for me personally, if I had the option of a grid, I probably wouldn't use it 95% of the time, it would be more of a clutter than help.
Why are you missing the grid?
