I found this package Rastersjökort i BSB standarden Hela Sverige which might be of interest:

"On this CD ROM are all Swedish charts available in our catalog. The album covers the coastal area from Haparanda to Stromstad, Inland lakes Vänern, Vättern, Hjälmaren and Mälaren. Our three canals are also included, the Göta canal, the Strömsholm canal and Dalsland canal.

BSB format suitable for most electronic charts such as Fugawi Marine ENC Fugawi Global Navigator, TIKI, OziExplorer, SeaClear, MaxSea, Open CPN and others."

I might invest in this myself. The same company is also offering Finnish coastal charts. Svenska Solsidan Site is only in swedish, so Mr. Google helps!

Navionics has a good reputation, and seems to work OK on my Android. I'd say MX Mariner but that seems US-centric.
Agree on this. I used it on my Galaxy S6 without any problem

Re: Migrating from IPad to Android

I use Navionics on my Samsung tablet and nothing could be simpler.I'm a big fan of OpenCPN, and as soon as they get to a point where the Android version is stable and effective/efficient, I'll probably be on board with moving to using it on my tablet as my primary backup tool there.

Anyone tried it recently? I actually paid for an Android download of OpenCPN, but it had several problems which made it unusable for me.
