Looking at my installation, my header bar is really short and is down the left side of the screen, it does not resemble the menu bau bar shown in the help section ? maybe that's why it cannot see my gps..

OK, was too quick off the mark, had used earlier versions and suspected much would be the same as before ver.5 do not like it so will dump it. preferred earlier versions.
Many thanks.

Re: No Text showing

FAQ in the wiki User Manual


Why don't the vector charts have text names on towns, ports, bouys and waters?

https://opencpn.org/wiki/dokuwiki/do...uys_and_waters


Kind of impetuous isn't it? ... " do not like it so will dump it."

You don't even give a full explanation why.

That is OpenCPN 5.0, you can download it from https://opencpn.org/OpenCPN/info/downloadopencpn.html

If you want help with some problem, you first need to describe that problem.
