I am really hoping someone may be able to help me. I have recently replaced my ships laptop
and operating system with Windows 7 (previously Windows XP and everything was fine) and installed the new version, openCPN
3.0.2, of openCPN
and downloaded my charts
from the disc. The charts
were initially installed under "my documents" however are now in "downloads". I am unable to get the openCPN program to read/acknowledge my charts.
My charts are installed in my downloads and labeled "openCPN charts"
when opening my nav program I am getting a black background with blue country outlines and a tool bar.
If I open "charts" on the tool bar, under "Available Chart Directories" I am seeing openCPN charts and the relevant charts listed ie. 00300060 through 04501020.
In the "Add Section"
the above charts are correctly identified as "c:\users\Phil\Downloads\openCPN charts.
I have a BU-353 GPS
unit installed which is fully operational (as previously)
Can anybody help me identify what I am doing wrong.
Thank you for your help.
