What would be the difference in function between Titanic’s Chart Room and Navigating Room?

The chart room was used by the ship's officers and the navigation room was used by the Commander as far as navigation work was concerned. By the way, the chart room shown above actually extended down and included the area where you show that settee.

The reason I ask is that since the navigating room has a forward facing window, would this room not be used at night or would they have black out curtains?
 
They would have blockout curtains. I believe Smith told Lightoller at about 9:30 that if needed he would be right inside. Also, Boxhall said he gave Smith the ships position for 7:30 to put on his (Smith's) chart at around 10pm and that he saw Smith prick the position on his chart at that time.
