Windows 8


I am new to all this but have a new laptop for my new boat with windows 8.
Is this compatible for downloading and running openCPN?

Re: Windows 8

Yes it is. Just in case it has an integrated GPS and you intend to use it, make sure it's drivers do produce NMEA on a virtual serial port (more likely not being the case with HW designed for Windows 8)
