Happy to know it.

Until OpenCPN is running natively on android, anyone wanting to use OpenCPN on their android has one choice, even if it may be what you call a "workaround".


It works, and everyone doesn't own or use AIS. So, while it does not meet your needs, it will satisfy many others who want OpenCPN on their low power, small footprint android.


I'm surprised someone who is a "...professional system architect, designing large scale enterprise IT systems for a living..." would use a device like yours for this project anyway. My instructions are too confusing for someone with your experience? Unbelievable...

Yeah. I'm such a dumbo. I'm lucky that my boss doesn't realize this ...


Of course I could have followed these instructions (btw: the new ones are better). But I always though: What a chaos. Why would I need android terminal? Why should I compile? WTF with gpsd

See, my own instructions in post #77 are just 7 steps. Not as detailed as yours but enough for me to get OpenCPN working including AIS and instrument data.

But based on your genius questions and comments about i386 and ARM, compile or install, etc I am quite sure you haven't even read my posts or don't understand much of it or don't believe me that I even installed OpenCPN on my tablet.
This is a waste of time.

Over and out.

Asus 7 inch Windows tablet + OpenCPN.

You cannot get much cheaper than this.

Note Asus 7 inch no internal GPS sensor.

So, especially if you have used or have knowledge of both these apps, which one should I choose to use on my iPad and why?

Were it me, I'd have two different apps (i.e., both of these, if they're your only choices). $50 is cheap redundancy.

We use two apps, each installed on 4 platforms (two tablets and two smartphones).

I also prefer on app uses vector charts and the other uses raster charts.

HP 7 Stream. NOT Asus 7.

Mea culpa.

HP 8 Stream has GPS and GLONASS onboard.
