Thanks Happy Seagull,
I'm Using C93 Vector Charts, chart place names where operating fine before I had experienced the OpenCPN opening problem.
As you signaled it could be, I did not do a complete down loading everything as I should have, there are a number of C map files apart from the chart files of C93.The tides work, and the only missing element is the place names?
The question is, if it is a missing CMap file how do I identify it?
One last question the old C93 charts are lacking in to days standard. In Jan plan to sail from Sydney
Aus, NZ and on to and explore Patagonia. Since that area is constantly being updated what charts you would use.
I realize that Proprietary chart software will not work on OpenCPN, I do also have Version 12.6 MaxSea navigation
soft ware as well.
I have been reluctant to buy charts till I understand which are the most reliable and available
Many thanks for your comprehensive help,
