Moving All Charts to a Pendrive

Hi all.

The chart database on my laptop has reached 6GB and it was slowing down general operations as well as the update control of OpenCPN.

I puchased a reasonable 8GB pendrive for around US$ 42.- and transferred all my charts except CM93 v2 which I retained on my HD.

The added performance was spectacular. For security reasons I made a backup copy on an 8GB DVD.

This method is also handy when I wish to work on my larger screen desktop PC by just pluging in the pendrive with all my charts up-to-date.
"And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by."

Portable OpenCPN

What is needed is a portable OpenCPN.

Because the pen drives letters may change...
