OCPN deals with vector charts in the S57 format (S63 is the same but encrypted) and the CM93 format.

Please have look here:
All About Charts | Official OpenCPN Homepage

Navionics charts from a file or SD card "as is" you can't use - this is a private, special, non-open format like C-MAP or Garmin and others.

Depending on the region you would like to use there are - free is the exception for US waters - vector charts in the S57/S63 format which can be licensed.
And there are raster charts for several regions as well.

There are as well plug-ins for various commercial formats - just have a look at the documentation.
