Nexus 7 and Cdn Charts

I use CPM on my laptop which is great here on the BC coast. This year the kids gave me a Nexus 7 and was wondering if there is a chart plotter that would work with Canadian charts on this device. I have followed comments of the MX plotter here at the forum. Anyone have experience on the BC coast with a tablet chart plotter? ... thanks

Re: Nexus 7 and Cdn Charts

We have Plan2Nav by Jeppesen on our Nexus 7 (and another tablet, too); it uses C-Map vector charts and I'm reasonably sure Canadian charts are available. The app is free, and you pay for the charts (not expensive).

We also have MX Mariner on the tablets; raster display, but not sure if they have Canadian charts. Probably worth a look; it'll say in the Play store whether they have your charts or not.

There are probably some other options...
