Thank you so much for this.
I have them on the mode where they automatically change as I zoom in and out so that I'm always seeing the highest detail chart for the center of where I'm looking. At least I think that's the case - I recall
setting it up that way long ago and it appears to still do that. Occasionally I click one of the green (ENC) or blue (RNC) bars at the bottom to force a particular chart.
I have all of the north carolina
NOAA charts loaded up. I do not use groups - all one group.
I use OpenCPN
to download my tracks, waypoints from my Simrad
unit and then I use those to create and edit routes and add details to waypoints and then I load all those back up into Simrad
. If there is a better GPX editing map tool out there, i haven't found it, but that doesn't mean there isn't one I've just been using OpenCPN
for nearly a decade (or maybe over a decade) and find it to be solid enough for my purposes.
I thought I rebuilt the chart databases the other day when I downloaded the latest set from NOAA but I just did that again now and I have to say I think it's performing better - so perhaps that was my issue. I will report back after some more use.
