Does anyone know where to download digital charts (RCN) for Fijian waters that are suitable for using with OpenCPN??

https://opencpn.org/...hartsource.html
Is the official source list.
There are no free charts for Fiji. Some use the pirated cm93 charts.
The best way is the s63 charts - see the above link.

Not charts but this app has all the google earth shots of Fiji and shows regular tracks

"Atlas of Fiji for Mariners"

If your device has in built GPS it will show your track.

Use with all the usual cautions...

Opencpn can use google earth sat photos as well. A bit of work to make them into charts, but it's not to hard, and there are some online already done. Refer to the website above.

Another I have used is "Ovital" which is a Chinese app. Works on IOS as well as Android

Worth a look

Cheers
