Re: Open CPN charts

Did you check the manual? --> the "?" button from the tool bar.
There is a dedicated chapter about charts.

And you might ask at the OCPN forum here at CF.

Re: Open CPN charts

I did and the system simply crashes??
Maybe I made a mistake when installing the software as I did not want the charts etc to be downloaded in C:/ drive and stipulated D:/ instead?

Re: Open CPN charts

Operating system, version of OpenCPN?
And please attach a copy of the log file - renaming it before to ...log.doc to pass the forum filters.

Anyhow - the manual is as well available from the OpenCPN web site:

It is no a so good idea to change the standard install path. The directory for the charts is completely independent. You can create the directories where they best fit for your way of organizing the charts.

Re: Open CPN charts

As BCN suggests you will have to direct OpenCPN to the new location.
Options > Charts > Add directory
Then do not forget to Check Force Full Database Rebuild.

I really do suggest reading the charts section of the manual. It should be very helpful.

Also there is a plugin callled Chart Downloader that is very helpful for downloading charts.
