Waypoints

Is there any way to save all the waypoints in HardDrive without blocking?

That would depend on what you want to save them from.

Most GPSes and chartplotters have a mene function to "save" or "export" routes, tracks, or waypoints. How you do it will depend on the equipment. Usually it is saved to a file, which you can put on your hard drive or elsewhere.

The basics is described here over at the opencpn.org site.
It's simple, create your waypoints, or route, save them as a file on your hard-disk, with the extension .gpx, by using the "GPX out" button.
You can now import them to a OpenCPN with "GPX in", at any time, alone or together with other saved files.

What do you mean with "blocking" in this case?
