        3. Here is how to get satellite image chartlets into open CPN

  • the satellite images are now on the server – 
    download them all  (it’s  2.7 GB !! please be patient )
    http://route.panamaposse.com/kap/ge_chartlets.zip
  • additional 20 GB mbtiles can be found here
  • place them into their own directory – create a directory  (folder) with a unique name
    example (c:\ge_charts )
  • launch / open OpenCpn
  • and add the charts –
    click on Options ( little wrench) -> Charts -> Add Directory -> Select the Folder you just created ->  example (c:\ge_charts )
  • Click [x]  Scan Charts and update Database – Apply  – wait and voila !
    Open Cpn with Satelit Images
