Getting the Most out of OpenCPN
by Sherry McCampbell s/v Soggy Paws
Sherry created an excellent pdf presentation on the fundamentals of OpenCPN. Its a fairly detailed document which explains everything necessary to get started.
Sherry’s presentation is thorough and is easily understood by anyone. Rich with diagrams and images, which makes it a breeze to follow. A lot of thought went into this. Sherry expertly guides you through all aspects of:
Setting up GPS and AIS
How to make and use Routes, Tracks, and Waypoints
The importance of layers and why you’ll want to use them
How to load plugins
And an overview on the OpenCPN Android App *
We recommend this presentation to anyone needing a solid introduction to OpenCPN and its basic functions. It also makes a great refresher course.
