Navionics for Android Tablets

I would appreciate any experiences anyone has had utilizing the navionic charts on android tablets. Any experience specifically with the Asus Transformer Prime Tablet?

Re: Navionics for Android Tablets

We have been using it on the Asus Transformer tablet 101 (not Prime) and a Samsung Galaxy tab with no issues at all. The Navionics app is excellent value for money in our opinion. We dont use it as our primary chart plotter but it is great for planning, before we leave and on the go.

i used the navionics on a viewpad android tablet, been very reliable and coped well with a very humid environment, only prob was the touch screen and using it with high condensation levels, constantly wiping the condensation off before we could use the touch screen, no fault of the app mind you.

If you haven't heard of it, also check out MX Mariner for Android.

I have that plus Navionics. I use MX Mariner more because it has pinch-to-zoom, free maps for all US waters, and some other nice features.
