Opening pilot chart

I have downloaded the .kap files that should contain the pilot charts for the Atlantic. I've also installed the BSB4 plugin. But I'm still totally lost as to how to open a pilot chart (.kap file) in OpenCPN. I'm not a computer jock so please try to help me through the process step by step.

Thanks for your help.

Re: Opening pilot chart

Please spend some time reading the manual, that will explain it all to you.
For your specific question start here: rt_files_tab

kap files are BSB3 and not BSB4. No plugin is required to display the pilotcharts.

If you are using the latest version of OpenCPN, version 5.0, please also read
