Jay. This is a volunteer army. There is no tech line. Almost all prpblems are solved or isolated in this forum. You will find ample help from others.

1. Please read the Manual section on charts on Opencpn.org. Also look at the section on chart sources.
2. Describe what you have done.
3. Describe what ypu think the problem is.

If the chart files are in the directory and are proper files, it will automatically search through that directory (and subdirectories) and open the charts. The charts cannot be in zip files, you must unzip them.

What kind of charts are you trying to open?

If you are trying to use US coast guard charts, then you can try my chart download tool. It does all the work of downloading and unzipping the charts.
