Find the file you need, select it and click the Open button.

Now that you have picked a NMEA file the controls to the right of the file open button allow you stop, restart, jump forward or back and speed up the playback.

In the top right corner are controls to zoom in/out the chart and change whether the view is North Up, Course Up or Route Up (where applicable).

To the bottom right there is an indicator of the availability and quality of the position information (like if a GPS was plugged into a real plotter).

Bottom Centre is cross track error information (if you have a route).
